    Hello!!! So, December 2019 we'll be taking a Disney Cruise!!! I was wondering if is it possible, and is there an additional charge, to get a crib for the baby in our stateroom? Will there be activities that involve characters?

    Hi Ernesto!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so thrilled that you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation!  And, I especially love hEARing that you are bringing a tiny Mouseketeer with you on your adventure at sea!  You are going to make some incredible memories on this vacation and even though your little one won’t remember it, you certainly will!

    Vacationing with littles always involves a little more planning and certainly requires more gear, but thankfully Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with littles so easy and convenient!  They offer pack and plays and diaper pails for your stateroom as well as highchairs or boosters for your table at dinner service – all complimentary!  I recommend logging into your account and specifying your needs or requests under “Special Requests” which will alert your stateroom host or hostess and dining room servers to have those items ready for you when you arrive.  If you are planning on utilizing the nursery onboard, I would recommend going ahead and booking specific times when your onboard booking window opens 75 days prior to your voyage to save your spot.  They also have cribs in there, so we always utilized the nursery for naptimes so we could enjoy the ship while our little ones napped!

    You’ve asked about onboard characters and you will definitely have plenty of opportunities to interact and meet the characters while onboard!  There will be character dance parties, character greetings where you can get your photos taken with your favorites and you may even find yourself in an elevator with Captain Mickey himself, as my boys did on our most recent voyage!  You will want to look into the onboard photo packages before your voyage so that all these magical memories will make their way home with you at the end of your vacation!

    Ernesto, you are going to have an incredible vacation and I am so very excited for you!  As you continue planning and preparing, please come back by with any other questions you have!

    Happy Sailing!
