    Hello! I will be going on the Disney Fantasy in July, will pin trading be going on then? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Lorraine! 

    There really is nothing better than planning and dreaming about an upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation. I have good news! You will have an opportunity to take part in a surprise pin trade. While you won’t see the crew wearing pin-trading lanyards at this time, there is at least one pin-trading box in the merchandise shops on board. Guests select a number and trade for the Disney pin in the numbered drawer. You won’t know what pin you’re getting until you open the drawer – how exciting! The shops also have a variety of pins available to purchase. On my last cruise, I spotted some Guests with unofficial pin trading boards outside their staterooms. It might be fun to explore the decks looking for pins. 

    You picked a great time to cruise! Disney Cruise Line is celebrating their 25th anniversary all summer long. Captains Mickey and Minnie are rolling out new culinary delights, entertainment, and merchandise during their “Silver Anniversary at Sea” celebration. I recommend asking about new and exclusive pins in the shops. They might have a unique sparkly pin to add to your collection. I can’t wait for you to experience the new celebration fireworks. Oh boy, it looks like your Western Caribbean cruise has three nights of fireworks!

       • Sunday: 25th Celebration Fireworks
       • Tuesday: July 4th Fireworks
       • Wednesday: Pirate Night

    Check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once on board for showtimes. You can quickly access the daily activities, rotational dining menus, and entertainment schedules. It’s nice having your personal itinerary always at your fingertips. When you’re in port, the app provides information about the debarkation process and when you’re expected to be back on the ship.

    Lorraine, I hope you find a special pin to commemorate your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Please sail back to planDisney to ask us any additional questions about your sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy. We are happy to help you pin down any last-minute plans. 

    SEAS the adventure!
