    Our cruise is a surprise for my wife. The character call timings are limited to 9.00AM-7.45PM. We plan to be up at 6AM 4/13 as we have a flight that noon, so need the call before 9AM. What are my options? Any other ideas to break the surprise early morn?

    Ahoy Akshay!
    It is wonderful to hear from you again!  I'm sorry the character call timing doesn't work well with your plan.  I just surprised my kids last week with a Disney Cruise so I do have a few suggestions for you.  First, you could print off a few Disney themed signs from your computer and decorate your bedroom or other room in your house with them along with some balloons and a few cruise related items (sunglasses, a lei, suntan lotion, etc...).  You could also wake up your wife with some Disney music such as "Under the Sea" before she discovers your surprise cruise decor.  Another thought is to wrap up the cruise related items as presents and the last present could be a picture of the Disney Dream! 
    I hope these ideas are helpful, Akshay!  I'm so excited for your big surprise and know your wife will be over the moon when she hears where she is headed!
    Good luck and bon voyage!
