    We just booked our first Disney cruise for February 2018. We'll be cruising aboard the Dream. What I shouldn't miss?? Any tips or advice??

    Ahoy, Jomary!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited about your upcoming inaugural Disney Cruise! You'll be sailing the high seas on my favorite ship: the Disney Dream! I'll never forget the first time we stepped aboard the Disney Dream and into the Lobby Atrium. I get chills just thinking about it!

    While onboard, definitely dine in each of the Main Dining restaurants for dinner. You're going to love Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining! I also recommend seeing the Broadway-style shows held each evening in the Walt Disney Theatre. Does anyone in your pirate crew love water? If so, no voyage on the Disney Dream is complete without a splashtacular ride on the AquaDuck! One tradition that my family started was to watch a classic Disney movie under the stars on the Funnel Vision (which is a jumbo LED screen on the pool deck). We love wearing sweatshirts and watching movies all snuggled up while the ship is sailing to the next port of call! Pirate Night will be a swashbuckling good time! I highly recommend dressing up in pirate gear and enjoying all the festivities throughout the night. Finally, soak up all the fun in the sun on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Whether you're an experienced snorkeler or this will be your first time, I recommend renting snorkel gear and seeing all the hidden treasures under the sea!

    You'll find a schedule of activities for the day and night in your daily Personal Navigator newsletter. Your Stateroom Host/Hostess will leave this newsletter in your stateroom each evening for the following day. I recommend looking it over before bed and highlighting all the activities on and around the ship you want to "sea" and do!

    Jomary, I'm wishing you a DREAM-y first voyage next month!
