    We are going on the Dream ( cruise ) on May 6 with a two year old. How will a cast member know who she is if she somehow gets separated from us on the ship?

    Hi Elaine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  In less than one month you will be onboard the Disney Dream enjoying some fun in the sun with my favorite captain, Captain Mickey!  If you haven’t yet downloaded the Navigator app, go ahead and do that so you will be ready when vacation time arrives!  On the app you will find lots of useful information such as menus, schedules of activities and entertainment and much more!  It’s so nice to have all that information at arms reach since you KNOW you will have your smartphone out to capture all those magical memories you will be making onboard!

    I love that you are bringing a little Mouseketeer with you!  You will love experiencing the magic alongside your daughter and seeing her face light up throughout the voyage will create memories that you will remember forever!  As a mom of two boys, I totally understand your concern about getting separated from your little one while onboard.  My recommendation for this would be to certainly register her for the nursery so that she will receive an Oceaneer Band when you arrive for embarkation.  This band is used to check children in and out of the onboard Youth Clubs, but if she does get away from you, it can be scanned to determine who she belongs to!  But, to really ensure she doesn’t get away from you, I recommend bringing a lightweight umbrella stroller with you.  You will love being able to secure her in there and pushing her all over the ship to get from place to place!  An umbrella stroller is the perfect size because it will go right under your stateroom bed for easy storage!

    Wishing you a magical and memory filled adventure at sea!
