    Hello. We have just booked our first family vacation with my two year old daughter. We are sailing on the Disney Magic in October. I am hoping to find any tips or advise to make this the best trip to be had with a toddler.

    Ahoy Jovee!
    You have chosen the perfect vacation for your family, and I hope your sailing on the Disney Magic is the first of many magical voyages with Disney Cruise Line!  My first sailing was when my son was a toddler and watching him experience the magic of Disney at sea was just priceless!  The cruise staff plans fabulous activities and events for the entire family so I definitely recommend checking your daily cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator, to stay up-to-date on all the ship's happenings.  I like to bring along a highlighter so I can mark the activities my family doesn't want to miss.  In your Personal Navigator you will also find a guide to the Character Meet & Greets opportunities.  Watching your princess interact with her most favorite Disney characters will absolutely melt your heart!  If she enjoys dressing up, I would stop by Mickey's Mates on Deck Three to check out the dazzling princess gowns for purchase!  There is nothing cuter than a little princess toddling around the ship!  I think your family will also enjoy visiting the youth spaces during their Open House hours.  During these hours, families can enjoy the Oceaneer Club & Lab and make even more magical memories together!  These times will be clearly marked in your Personal Navigator! 
    I hope you have the most wonderful cruise vacation, Jovee!  Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your questions!
