    Do I have to buy wifi to use the Disney cruise app on the ship? Thanks!! You guys are awesome!!

    Welcome back, Robin! Disney Cruise Line's Navigator App is a great way to keep track of all of the fun activities and events that will be going on around the ship from sun up until way past sun down! 

    Go ahead and download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App before you arrive at the port, so it's loaded and ready on your phone before you set sail. Then, once onboard, it will walk you through how to set it up further. You will not need to purchase a wifi package to use this app, as long as you've downloaded it before you head out to sea. The DCL-GUEST Wireless network is complimentary while using the Navigator App. However, if you'd like to use your phone or other internet device for online capabilities other than this app, you would need to purchase a wifi package. It really is convenient to be able to see what's going on around the ship with a few swipes on your phone in the app!

    I also love the adorable little Disney emojis that are available to text to each other through the app. If you're like me, you'll want to try them all out. My sweet, patient husband puts up with lots of texts through the app from me when we're onboard with emojis of Lightning McQueen, Nemo and Dory, the Inside Out characters, tons of Mickey and his friends, lightsabers, and so many more! The app offers Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel emojis. You can tell your family to meet you by the Mickey slide, with an emoji for that, or to head up to the Buccaneer Blast fireworks with an emoji for that. Tell your husband you'd like a Mickey Bar with an emoji for that. I could go on and on! They are awfully adorable and addicting, Robin! I would add them all in to this message to you now if I could! So be sure to play around with them when your app goes live once you're onboard the ship, and have a fun time adding even more Disney magic to your Disney Cruise Line vacation!
