    I am going on a 4 day Disney Dream Cruise for the first time with my children, ages 15 and 10 year old triplets. What are some of the essentials that I should take for them?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Season!

    What better way to start the new year than making new memories with your family on your very FIRST cruise on the Disney Dream?  I am so excited for you to experience all of the magic included when sailing with Captain Mickey!

    I am sure once onboard your young pirates will love spending time in the youth clubs.  Your oldest can meet up with new friends in the teen club, Vibe, while your triplets take over the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab!  To keep in touch with my kids while they are in the clubs, in the past I have brought them waterproof lanyards that hold their phones so they can communicate with us using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App.  The app has a great chat feature that they can also use to communicate with the new friends they make onboard.

    My entire family also enjoys Port Adventures at the beach and the AquaDuck during our cruises.  For that reason, I bring an extra swim suit for each of us and clothes pins to hang them on the bathroom clothes line to dry.  No one likes putting on a wet swim suit!  To keep track of where everyone is spending their time on the ship, we also bring a magnetic dry erase board to hang in our stateroom to leave notes for each other throughout the day.

    Finish filling your suitcases with pirate garb for Pirate Night, as well as your typical travel essentials on Disney Cruise Line's recommended packing list.  Then, relax and enjoy your magical vacation!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions about your upcoming high seas adventure.

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
