    We are going on a Disney Cruise in July and I would love some tips and tricks to making it the best family vacation. Our family has never cruised together before and my kids ages range from 22-13. Thanks for your help!

    Welcome to planDisney, Amber!  Your vacation onboard the Disney Magic is on the horizon!  Here are some fun activities for Guests of all ages:

    • Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me:  No need to walk the plank!  Just show up ready to have a great time with Mickey and friends on Pirate Night.   There will be a special menu in the rotational dining restaurant and then you are off to party like a pirate! 
    • Take a ride on the AquaDunk:  If you have thrill-seekers in your pirate crew, then the AquaDunk is for them!  There is a vertical launch that drops them into the three-story slide.  I suggest they ride it during the day and the night.
    • Trivia Time: The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app will list different themed trivia times. If you want a little friendly competition between family members, you can join different teams. I have seen the winners with some cool medals (subject to availability).   There are other games as well.
    • Capture the memories: Disney Cruise Line professional photographers will be available throughout the Disney Magic to take pictures of you and your family.  Some families like wearing matching t-shirts or wearing the same color for their photos.  Whether it is in the rotational dining restaurants or character meet-and-greets, you can get some great family and individual photos. 
    These are just a few things that will happen while you are on the Disney Magic. When you are ready to meet up, you can stay in touch via the chat feature of the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. 

    Amber, I hope this creates some excitement as you make final preparations for your cruise.  If you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney for help.

    Bon Voyage!
