    Hello, my family and I will be going on our first cruise ever this October what are some activities I can sign up my 7(boy) and 4 (girl) year to do? How do I reserve as well?

    Ahoy, Amayrani! 

    Congratulations on your first voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line! I'm sure you can hardly wait for your vacation to be underway to experience the magic of Disney at sea!

    The youth clubs are amazing, and your kiddos can check in and out for secured programming throughout the day. Once you've signed them up for the youth activities during your Online Check-in (75 days prior to your departure), they are all set to experience these incredible spaces! Activities are scheduled throughout the day and will be listed in your cruise newsletter and on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. (This app is free for download for Apple and Android devices.) These two resources will be quite valuable since they will help your family plan out each day. When my Mouseketeers were younger, they enjoyed Parachute Games, GAGA Ball, Super Sloppy Science, Toy Story Bootcamp, Marshmallow Olympics and Pluto's Pajama Party!

    There are a few events that you'll need to reserve ahead of time during your Online Check-in. Two Character meet-n-greet experiences do require tickets-Frozen Friends and the Princess Gathering. If your sailing is seven nights or longer, a Character Breakfast is also offered. Although these all require tickets, there is no charge for you to attend these events. You can reserve them in "My Cruise Activities" once you've completed your check-in. 

    You may also be interested in reserving the Royal Court Royal Tea. This enchanted event is offered for Guests 3 to 12 along with their parent or guardian for an additional fee. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique also is available for an additional fee for fairytale princess makeovers and pirate transformations (on Pirate Night only). Reservations open during your Online Check-in.
