    My family and I are setting sail for the first time on a Disney Cruise - Dream, Nov. 23, 2015. We are all so excited we can't wait. I wanted to know when the Very Merry Christmas starts and if there is something special going on Thanksgiving Day. Thank U

    Welcome aboard, Deanna!

    How awesome to hear that you'll be spending no time in the kitchen at all for Thanksgiving this year. You and your whole family get to be pampered on your voyage. Hooray!

    You'll also be enjoying the beautifully decorated Disney Dream for the holidays. The minute you step into the gangway on embarkation day, you get a whiff of that amazing ginger bread house across from the lobby. Disney Cruise Line puts a lot of work into transforming the already elegant ship into your whimsically festive home for your cruise. Make sure to keep your camera handy -- there's a big dose of magical awesomeness waiting for you onboard. You'll be sailing on a Very MerryTime Cruise this year - and it gets some extra pixie dust with additional Thanksgiving specials on Thanksgiving Day.  

    As you know, schedules may change -- so keep tabs on what's going on daily by checking the Personal Navigator. If you have a smart phone, you can download the App now, and re-launch it once you are on board. Use of the App while onboard is Free. Our family loves the 1-to-1 messaging on the App... it's so much easier to keep tabs on my kids while they're out and about at the Youth Clubs. The Disney characters will be in their holiday attire, and you don't see that very often. This makes for great photos for your family and a great photo souvenir to remember your first magical cruise.

    Wishing you an awesome vacation, Deanna. Please let us know if you have any additional questions that we can help with.

    Have a magical day!
