    My family is going on our first Disney Cruise on the Dream in June 2018! We couldn't be more excited! Our children will be 15, 14, 12, 5 at that time. What are the must do activities that we (of all ages) can do together?

    Ahoy Tracey!

    Thanks for sailing to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this exciting news! Congratulations on booking your inaugural voyage with Captain Mickey and his friends! I can feel your excitement through your question! You and your pirate crew will love the Disney Dream. It's my favorite ship! Before you know it, you'll be saying "goodbye" to Pennsylvania and "hello" to paradise!

    The first "must do" activity that comes to mind is Pirate Night! I recommend bringing your pirate garb and all dressing up for the festivities on and around the ship! Dinners onboard are something your entire family will enjoy! Not only is the food incredible but many of my favorite memories while cruising happened with my entire family sitting at the table in the Main Dining restaurants each night. Don't forget to see the Broadway-style musicals that play throughout your trip, too! There's nothing like them on the high seas. If you're sailing aboard the Disney Dream you must be making a stop at the island paradise, Castaway Cay! I highly suggest flipping your fins as a family in the Snorkeling Lagoon off the Castaway Family Beach! This will be an unforgettable time that even your youngest buccaneer can enjoy!

    My family often wears matching shirts to commemorate our Disney Cruises! I think you should get them for your family, too! If you all wear them on the same day, it will make for such an adorable picture. Stop by one of the onboard photographers to have a professional photo taken in your matching shirts!

    I'm sure you'll have many more questions as you continue preparing for your big adventure at sea. Please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again. We are here to help you navigate through the planning process!
