    We are booked on the Disney Fantasy ship sailing May 11 to May 18 from Port Canavral. I would like to book a family portrait while we are there with our kids and grand kids. Do I have to book this before sailing or can I book it once we are on the ship?

    Ahoy Andrea!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I'm so excited to see you'll be sailing on the Disney Fantasy in May!  This was the first ship my family sailed on over a decade ago and it started my lifetime love of Disney Cruise Line.  I'm sure you're counting down to your magical vacation!

    Shutters Portrait Studio offers an opportunity for guests to book a private photo session during the cruise.  It is the perfect way to capture some beautiful family memories - and it sounds like you are fortunate to be surrounded by many loved ones on your trip!  While you may be able to book this once onboard, this experience is very popular, and advanced reservations are recommended.  You can book your session before sailing by visiting "My Cruise Activities" once your cruise is paid in full and your booking window has opened.  

    Andrea, I wanted to take a quick minute and also share a few of my favorite things that you won't want to miss on the Disney Fantasy.  The live entertainment in the Walt Disney Theater is captivating and one of my favorite shows on any Disney Cruise Line ship is currently on the Disney Fantasy - Disney's Believe.  This is an original show featuring some familiar characters and songs that will tug at your heartstrings.  I may even need a tissue each time I watch it to wipe away a tear or two!  You'll also want to keep an eye on your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once onboard for events taking place in the D Lounge.  There are a variety of activities for families to enjoy together taking place here including trivia, karaoke, and game shows.  No sailing on the Disney Fantasy would be complete without taking a spin on AquaDuck, but if you have any younger sailors that might not be ready for those thrills, there are also fun splash areas in Nemo's Reef and AquaLab!

    I hope this helps as you make those final preparations for your upcoming vacation!  Don't hesitate to cruise on by planDisney again if we can help answer any other questions for you!

    Happy Sailing!
