    Cruising Disney Magic to Canada in Sept. My 4 yr old little girl LOVES princess dress up. I saw some activities that looked like dress up onboard. Should I bring some of her Princess dresses? Do many little girls dress in princess dresses at dinner?

    Ahoy Jennifer!
    Your question just put a huge smile on my face because my princess was four on our first Disney Cruise and also loved dressing up!  The memories I have of that vacation of her dressed like her favorite Disney royalty are just priceless, and I'm thrilled you are about to create the same magical memories!  There will be several opportunities for her to enjoy some dress-up fun in the Captain's Closet dress-up room in the Oceaneer Club.  Each time this is offered it will be listed in your Personal Navigator, the daily cruise newsletter.  You will also want to plan on attending the Princess Gathering in the Grand Atrium Lobby where all the princesses on board will be available for royal greetings, pictures and autographs!  This is usually offered twice on a five-night cruise so check that Personal Navigator for details!
    I would definitely pack princess dresses because you will see many little princesses each evening!  Your daughter will love being dressed in her finest attire for dinner, and you will be able to capture some beautiful shots of her around the ship and with her favorite characters!  If you are looking to add to her dress collection, shimmering princess gowns and dazzling accessories will be available for purchase at Mickey Mates on Deck Three! 
    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel, Jennifer! I'm always happy to help so please let me know if think of any other cruise questions!
    Have a magical day and bon voyage!
