    My family's first cruise is this July. I'm curious about extra food charges. What isn't included in our original cruise price? I don't want to incur unexpected charges but want to be prepared so my kids have what they want.

    Hi Brooklynn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You’re going on a Disney Cruise!!  SO exciting!  Your family will have the best time aboard the Disney Dream and it will be here before you know it!  

    One of the biggest amenities of Disney Cruise Line vacations is that so many things are already included with your fare.  Dining and room service is included as well as soft drinks from the self-service drink station.  Some items that incur an extra charge include: bottled water, bar service, specialty drinks and coffees, and prepackaged snacks that are sold outside the theatres during movies and nightly entertainment. Believe me, I am pretty certain no one will go hungry while onboard a Disney Cruise Line vacation…I think I could quite possibly live on the chocolate chip cookies alone! My boys repeatedly tell me my cookies are not as good as the one on the ship and I definitely agree!

    Another great amenity that is included with your reservation are the amazing Youth Clubs onboard.  When your booking window opens, be sure to register your children for the Youth Clubs where they will have a blast playing games, crafting, meeting new friends and you can enjoy some of the exclusive adult-only areas on the ship!  You will also be able to book any excursions through Port Adventures or make any reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers at this time.  The window opens for first time cruisers 75 days prior to sailing!

    I know you will have the best time at sea with your family!  Wishing you many magical memories made! 

    Happy Sailing!
