    Dear all... I am super excited we just booked our first Disney Cruise, 7 days, Eastern. I don't want to miss anything! All must-do/try/see dinning, shows, activities and attractions INSIDE the ship. Would you please give me some tips? TNX

    Welcome aboard, Alex! Congratulations on booking your very first Disney Cruise Line voyage!

    With seven days to enjoy everything onboard and in the ports of call, you can relax and enjoy your time without feeling rushed to "do it all". No need to worry about planning dining, as you'll be assigned a Dining Rotation that will take you through all three of the main restaurants during your cruise, dining in each twice, and one three times for dinners. Of course, the show nights at Animator's Palate are not to be missed! Interact with Crush from Finding Nemo, and then draw your own character and watch it become fully animated on the screens!

    Take the Art of The Theme Show Tour to get inside details on the ship's design and creation. I also love the Anyone Can Cook Series for adults. The chefs walk us through a recipe with a tasting at the end. I enjoy taking that recipe home to try myself!

    Of course, the Character Greetings are a lot of fun. Some need to be pre-booked, like the Princess Gathering and Frozen Meet and Greet. Be sure to log on at 75 days prior to sailing to book these right away when first time guests are able to begin online check-in.

    The Midship Detective Agency is a favorite for my whole family. Become detectives and solve one of two mysteries by visiting the enchanted artwork throughout the ship. Don't miss it!

    The nightly Broadway-style shows are a must. Kids will love the Youth Clubs and I do recommend an adult night away at Palo or Remy, the two adult exclusive restaurants onboard. I'm about out of room, but please stop back with more questions as you continue to plan, Alex!
