    Hi there! My family is about to embark on our first Disney Cruise! What are the chances we'll be able to snag tickets for character meets when we board? We are 6 adults and 1 kid, will we need 7 tickets? Is that ok to use up so many tickets on adults?

    Ahoy, Jessica!

    It's officially the month you'll be setting sailing on your VERY FIRST Disney Cruise! Woo Hoo! I hope the next few weeks fly by, so it will be your family's turn to enjoy a magical vacation at sea. My family was hooked after our inaugural sailing with Mickey. My Mouseketeers immediately fell in love with the youth programming, and my husband and I enjoyed having a little time to ourselves while they experienced everything the clubs had to offer. The amazing amenities, activities, and accommodations have us coming back yEAR after yEAR to vacation with Disney Cruise Line! 

    Jessica, since you have a few weeks before your departure date, I encourage you to continue to check online for ticket availability. Guests' plans often change, so you never know when some might pop up. If you don't have any luck beforehand, please make a stop at Guest Services (Deck Three, Midship) once onboard to check for any extras. They often have some on embarkation day, so be sure to go by as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to ask for the number of tickets you need for your entire party as they are for ALL Guests no matter young or old! The good news is that Disney Cruise Line offers a lot of character meet-and-greet opportunities. I always recommend arriving a few minutes before the official start time to secure your spot in line. All of these opportunities will be listed in your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, and you'll be able to favorite the ones you'd like to attend. If you enjoy these character greetings, you do not want to miss "Sea Ya Real Soon" on the final night of your voyage. It's a special farewell that will include many of your favorite Disney Friends! 

    Thank you for sending in your question, Jessica! If you have any other questions, please let us know. 

    Have a magical day!
