    Hi. We are going on a Disney cruise during Passover. We wanted to know if there will be a seder (special Passover meal) during our trip. Also, will they have food without bread for the holiday? Thanks.

    Welcome aboard, Zarina!

    I am happy to let you know that each year over Passover, Disney has invited a Rabbi onboard to host a Seder meal, so your family will be able to celebrate Passover with others from around the world. What a beautiful event! Check your Personal Navigator (the ship's schedule of events) or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once you're onboard for the exact time and location of the meal. Disney asks that those planning to attend would add a note to their reservation about this, so please call the agents at Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 to add that information to your reservation so that Disney will be able to better prepare for the meal. Disney asks that you make this request, as well as any Kosher meal requests, 60 or more days prior to sailing. Since your cruise is right around the corner, please call as soon as possible.

    I've looked into the Passover meal for other guests before, so I'd love to share with you what I've learned about how Disney will help you to celebrate this holy day of remembrance. In accordance with Jewish dietary laws, the Passover meal will be prepared separately from other traditional meals. It will include Matzo. If you request Kosher meals, those are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day in the full service restaurants and are served on trays from a certified Kosher company. Again, these meals must be pre-requested prior to sailing. Because of ship safety regulations, open flames are not allowed onboard, so unfortunately, the tradition of candle lighting cannot be observed, but a battery operated candle might be something you consider bringing instead.

    I hope those details help as you plan for this exciting cruise vacation, Zarina!
