    My family is sailing on the Disney Dream in July for a 3 day cruise. It will be our first one so I have a lot of questions. Do we have to purchase a picture package or can I bring my own camera on board to take photos with characters etc...

    Hi there, Brooklynn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you found us while planning for your first magical cruise with Disney Cruise Line.  You and your family will have the most amazing time onboard the beautiful Dream!  I am so excited for you and if you haven’t done so already, set your cruise countdown clock on the Navigator app to watch the days slip by and before you know it, you will be headed to sea with Captain Mickey and friends!

    From Embarkation to the end of your sailing, there will be many photo opportunities available.  Professional photographers are on hand for photos before dinner, during dinner, at character greetings and even at Castaway Cay!  So many fun opportunities to snap the fun memories you will be making on your sailing!

    You are most definitely allowed to bring on your own camera to take your own photos and many times a friendly Cast Member will even offer to snap the picture for you so everyone can be in it!  I do recommend taking a glance at the onboard photo packages available for purchase through My Cruise Photos.  I love this because I love creating a printed book of all our memories because as often as I say I will do it, not many photos end up being printed once I return home!  And that scrapbook I tell myself I will make…well, I still haven’t done one yet!  So, I love creating it onboard with our cruise photos and then having a great souvenir at the end of our sailing.  And how else will you get your action photo from the AquaDuck?? 

    Happy Sailing!
