    We are going on a cruise this Christmas. My boys are excited, but worried that Santa will not be able to find the boat. Do you have any suggestions how to handle this? Is it possible to ship Santa items before-hand and have them on the boat?

    Georgia Greetings Pamela!
    I always love to see a question from a fellow Georgia Peach!  From your sail date, it appears you will be sailing your Christmas voyage on the first Disney Wonder cruising out of Miami! 
    My kiddos would also be worried about Santa finding us in the middle of the ocean!  But, you need to remind your boys that you are on a Disney Cruise, and Captain Mickey would never let that happen! In fact, Santa usually makes an appearance on Christmas morning for those lucky enough to be on a holiday sailing!  All the details on Santa's visit along with any other special holiday activities planned for your cruise will be listed in your Personal Navigator, the daily cruise newsletter, so check it daily!  
    If you want to send some special surprises for your boys, one box can be shipped to the Wonder.  This box can't contain any food or liquids, and you must include a packing list of the contents.  I called Disney Cruise Line today and the shipping address for the Port of Miami is not yet listed in their system, but should be any day now.  Please write back in a couple of weeks to check on the address for your package.
    Another idea you might consider is picking up a few items in the stores on Deck Three.  Since Santa will be onboard, you can tell the boys that Santa loves to bring Disney surprises while at sea.  There is a wonderful selection of toys, DVDS, clothing, trading pins, sweet treats and holiday merchandise that would be perfect for your Christmas morning celebration!
    I hope my suggestions help with your planning, Pamela and look forward to hearing from you again soon!!  It is sure to be a magical holiday at sea for your crew! 
    Have a wonderful day!
