    We will be cruising on Disney Fantasy. Is the Midship Detective Agency available upon arrival on the ship? If not, what are some of the first things (besides going to the pool) that we should do once we board the ship? We have a 5 and 9 yr old.

    Ahoy, Leanne!

    I'm so happy welcoming you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Embarkation day is so exciting! I love stepping onboard the ship, hearing our family's name announced and looking up at the chandelier in the Atrium lobby for the first time, knowing we're back at our home away from home. We'll be setting sail aboard the Disney Fantasy this upcoming summer and are so excited!

    You and your pirate crew will absolutely be able to start cracking the cases of the Midship Detective Agency the moment you step onboard! Feel free to visit the self-serve kiosk at the Midship Detective Agency to pick up your detective badge and case book! Another fun activity that you and your family can do once boarding the ship is visiting the Youth Activities Open House at both Disney's Oceaneer Lab and Disney's Oceaneer Club. Parents are welcome to join in the fun during the Open House so this will be a great time for you to check out these incredible spaces for kids! There's usually a movie playing on the Funnel Vision early afternoon, so think about grabbing a lounge chair on deck and enjoying the movie while eating a soft-serve ice cream cone! Finally, if you weren't able to book onboard experiences such as dinner at Palo or Remy, Royal Court Royal Tea, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointments or getting tickets to Character Greetings, it would be a great time to check the remaining availability as soon as you get onboard.

    Leanne, I'm so excited for your upcoming voyage aboard the Disney Fantasy! I'm wishing you a fun cruise from the moment you step onto the ship and your family's name is announced!
