    Hi there, Anna May!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR that you are heading on your very first Disney Cruise Line vacation!  You are going to have just the BEST time!!  My family recently sailed on the Disney Dream for the first time – and it won’t be our last time onboard the beautiful Disney Dream…my boys want to go back just for Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats Shop!

    As a first-time cruiser, your Online Check-In and onboard activity booking window will open 75 days prior to your sailing…and that is coming up soon!!  If you haven’t yet, mark your calendar because at the stroke of midnight (EST) you can begin reserving some fun onboard activities and Port Adventures!  If a Princess Gathering is scheduled for your specific itinerary it will be listed as an option for you to reserve complimentary tickets for it.  To determine if there is one offered, click on “Onboard Fun” on each day and if one is offered, it will be available as a selection there!  This is also where you can make appointments at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for princess makeovers!  I highly suggest getting a Princess Gathering ticket first and then schedule your boutique appointment.  If the time you are wanting is unavailable, check with the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique once onboard and they can usually make some magic work…although be advised the earliest I have seen the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique open is 9AM, so you may want to select a little later Princess Gathering time if you have the option to choose!

    Wishing you the most magical Disney Cruise with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
