    Ahoy, Elin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You've chosen such a festive inaugural cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line! My family had such a wonderful time during our Very Merrytime Cruise! We couldn't believe how beautifully decorated the ship was. From the moment we stepped into the Lobby Atrium we were immediately transported to the North Pole at sea!

    There is so much to see and do aboard a Disney Cruise during non-holiday voyages; when you add the spirit of the Christmas season, your options are never-ending! From the second you walk into the Lobby Atrium you'll smell the unbelievable Gingerbread House before you see it! Make sure you and your pirate princesses attend Mickey's Tree Lighting Ceremony! It's a special event where kids help light the ship's Christmas Tree. Santa makes a special stop onboard to visit with the kids, too! All your favorite Disney Characters will be dressed in their holiday best and ready to pose for photos! Also, at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, you'll see the island decked out for the holidays, too!

    You might be feeling overwhelmed, but don't worry! Once you get onboard, all the activities each day will be listed in your Personal Navigator newsletter and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Your stateroom host/hostess will leave your Personal Navigator newsletter in your stateroom each evening. You can download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to your mobile device before setting sail so it's ready to use the moment you step onboard!

    Elin, I know I just skimmed the surface, but please visit us again as more questions come to mind. We're here to help make your first cruise with your daughters absolutely unforgettable!
