    Our family of 12 (7 adults, 5 children) will disembark in Barcelona this summer from the Disney Dream early Friday morning, but our flight doesn't leave till 9 PM that night. What do you suggest we do all day, considering we will have all our luggage?

    Hola, Loretta! Welcome to planDisney!

    What a fantastic summer you have planned aboard the Disney Dream sailing the Mediterranean. I can’t wait for you to experience the beauty and history at each port of call. I sailed out of Barcelona twice, and I think the best option is to take a debarkation Disney Port Adventure. You spend the afternoon touring the city, and then they drop you off at the airport. It can’t get more convenient than that! These excursions can only be booked once you’re on the ship. 

    Another option is to search online for luggage storage in Barcelona. It looks like there are a few different companies that offer this service. You can take a taxi to drop off your luggage and then venture out to explore on foot. I highly recommend checking out the vibrant Las Ramblas area. It's centrally located, bustling with activity, and conveniently serviced by several hop-on-hop-off buses that make stops along the way. 

    Keep in mind that if you plan to visit any churches, you need to cover your shoulders and knees. You can wear shorts that reach below the knee and tank tops, as long as you bring a sweater or scarf to cover up with. I ended up packing zip-off pants for my husband and son. They were lightweight, covered their knees, and kept them cool in the hot Mediterranean sun.

    Have a fantastic time exploring Barcelona, Loretta! If you have any additional questions before you set sail, please feel free to stop by planDisney again. It’s our greatest pleasure to help Guests plan unforgettable family vacations. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
