    Our family will be on a 5 night cruise on Disney Wonder November 28th. Can you tell me if there will be any special characters on board or special Holiday events? Lastly, any insiders recommendations while we vacationing? Thank you

    Welcome aboard, Kim!

    You will have such a blast on your Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Wonder. How awesome to hear that you'll be celebrating your Very MerryTime Cruise soon with Captain Mickey! The ship will be beautifully decorated -- just perfect for your family to enjoy such a magical cruise to kick off the holiday season.

    My family and I were just on a 5-night cruise on the Disney Wonder last week, and we had a grand time. We were delighted to see Frozen's Anna and Elsa on board. Once you check-in at the port on embarkation day, make sure to read the Personal Navigator. If they are doing things the same way next month, the Anna and Elsa meet and greet tickets will usually be announced on the front page of the Navigator. They were also offering Disney Princess meet and greet tickets. These tickets are similar to FastPasses at the Disney Parks. There are a limited number of tickets, so you'll want to stop by the Port Adventures desk on Deck 3 Midship to pick these up once you get onboard. This was a very efficient way of getting personal time with the characters for pictures and autographs. My family and I had a brief 2-5 minute wait for the meet and greet and we took loads of pictures!

    There will be non-stop Holiday themed events onboard. Each of the Youth Clubs will be doing their own celebrations with the kids, and there will be special events going on every evening. The Personal Navigator will be delivered to your stateroom each night, so that you can prepare for the events the following day and evening. This is a great time to take family holiday photos too! All the Disney characters will be in holiday attire around the ship - so keep your camera ready!

    Have a magical holiday voyage, Kim!
