    Hi there! We are so excited!!! Our family has finally decided to take the plunge and book our 1st Disney Cruise for May 28 on Dream. 4 Adults and 4 kids (9yr boy, 6 yr boy, 5 yr girl, and 3 yr boy.) So we would appreciate any and all recommendations.

    Hi MaySarih!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can feel your excitement through your question! Eeee! Congratulations on booking your very first Disney Cruise aboard the Disney Dream! You'll be sailing with a huge pirate crew - how fun!

    My first thought when I read the ages of the kids in your group was that as long as the smallest sea guppie is fully toilet trained, all of them will be able to participate in both Disney's Oceaneer Lab and Disney's Oceaneer Club! Kids have such an incredible time in both Youth Clubs that they often don't want to leave! This will give the adults in your travel party some time to enjoy the adults-only areas of the ship! I recommend lounging in the adults-only pool, Quiet Cove Pool, or enjoy one of the Beverage Tasting Seminars held throughout the voyage!

    Each evening your Stateroom Host/Hostess will deliver a Personal Navigator newsletter to your stateroom. The newsletter will list the schedule for the following day's activities onboard. I recommend sitting down as a family each night and planning what everyone would like to do the next day! I look forward to doing this each evening of our cruise!

    Be sure to experience the incredible Broadway-style shows as well as the Main Dining Restaurants throughout your voyage! Sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line is the perfect time to try different foods that you can't find close to home. Finally, pack your eye patches and pirate gear for the best night on the high seas: Pirate Night!

    You're going to have such a DREAM-y voyage this upcoming May! If you can think of any more questions, please sail back and visit us again!
