    Hi all! We are going on the Disney Fantasy (first cruise ever!) this August through the Western Caribbean. I am wondering if its okay to book an excursion through the activity section if its scheduled at same time we are allowed to go ashore?

    Welcome aboard, Ryah!

    Sailing with Disney is so magical. I love that we get to check into our stateroom and unpack just once, but we are magically transported to port after port with amazing sights to see and enjoy. Cruising with Disney is the best way to vacation in my opinion! Plus, the Western Caribbean is the itinerary I've sailed the most times, so I just know that you're in for some really exciting ports of call to experience on the Disney Fantasy.

    Disney Cruise Line offers so many exciting Port Adventures, so I'm glad you're already checking out your must-do's in each port of call. I can't say enough about how fabulous all of my family's experiences have been on our Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures. They partner with the best guides to make our adventures so great, allowing us to really soak in the culture, history and activities of these awesome locations!

    Disney Cruise Line's Port Adventures actually meet onboard the ship, so book whichever sounds the best for your family. Since you're booking through Disney and not an outside agency, Disney knows that they can't start the adventures without the guests, even if your ship is arriving a few minutes later than expected. When you arrive in your stateroom that first day, there will be tickets for your Port Adventures waiting for you. They'll list the time to arrive for the adventure as well as the onboard location where you'll meet and check in for that adventure. Then, your whole group will walk off the ship together to begin what is sure to be a memorable and exciting day!

    I hope that helps as you sort through which adventures you will choose during your port visits, Ryah!
    Please stop back again if you have other questions before you head out to sea with Captain Mickey and his crew. We're happy to help!
