    I will be on the Disney Magic beginning 3/22 and have a question regarding the character meet and greets. I have conflicting information. Are tickets given for the meet and greets or are there just time slots to be in line for guaranteed meeting?

    Welcome aboard, Roshanda! As the Polar Vortex hovers around us here in the Midwest, it's the perfect time to dream of your tropical cruise on the Disney Magic next month! While I'm back home probably still shivering off this chill in March, you and your family will be setting sail on the high seas with Captain Mickey and his crew! Can I come along?

    My children have loved meeting with their favorite Disney friends while onboard our cruises ever since they were tiny. Now that they're 11 and 13, they still adore popping in for pictures and chatting with Mickey and his gang. My son especially enjoys meeting the Marvel crew onboard and my daughter will never be too old for a photo with Ariel. I just love that it's not possible to outgrow the magic of Disney!

    There are some Character Greetings that require advanced reservations, such as the Princess Gathering. If it is a pre-ticketed event, you'll have access to choosing a time for that during your online check-in. Any other meet and greets (which are the majority of them) are simply arrive and say hello! Each day you'll receive a Personal Navigator. This schedule of events includes a listing of all of the Character Greetings around the ship that day with times and locations. As long as you arrive within the window listed and hop in line, you'll get time to meet the character. If you haven't already, be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to your mobile devices. This also lists the activity schedules and Character Greetings, but includes even more so you'll want to have that for sure!

    I hope you get the chance to meet all of your favorite Disney friends while onboard the Magic, Roshanda! Have a great cruise!
