    Our family is sailing December 11th on the Disney Dream's 4 night cruise. Is there a way to find out before we leave when the Santa meet and greets will be? This is my only plan for my daughter to sit on his lap this year!

    Ahoy, Ann!

    Your holiday sailing will be here before you know it! A vacation full of merriment awaits your crew aboard the Disney Dream, and I'm sure y'all can't wait to dive in. I always enjoy cruising during this spirited season because there is nothing quite like the dazzling decor you'll find on the high seas with Disney Cruise Line! You'll even find some holiday touches on Castaway Cay. There's no doubt you'll be feeling jolly and festive on your upcoming vacation!

    Ann, Santa Claus is able to use some of his magic to visit the Disney Dream on the Very Merrytime Cruises. Since he is extremely busy right now, he usually is only able to visit twice on the 4-night sailings. Scheduling is always subject to change, but I can share that he has dropped by on Day 2 in the afternoon and on Day 4 in the morning on past voyages. You'll want to check your cruise newsletter or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for the Character Appearance schedule once you're onboard so you can plan ahead. I remember from my last Disney Dream sailing that the line was long to visit Santa so I do recommend arriving prior to the start time listed. 

    We are so glad you stopped by, Ann! We hope you'll come back to "sea" us with any other last minute questions you may have before you're casting off for your Bahamian adventure.

    Have a VERY MERRY time!
