    Hello, This is our first cruise Disney Magic sailing Nov 10th-17th, we are looking for tips on booking onboard activities, what time can I start booking? Activity suggestions ? We have a 6 yr old princess who is SO excited to see all her favs! Thank you!

    Hi Tiziana!

    I know you are SO excited for your FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation!!  I can guarantee you that it will be everything you hope it will be – and even more!!  With non-stop activities, more food than you can ever imagine and incredible ports of call, you are going to have the best time!!  You will make so many memories that will last forever!

    As a first-time cruiser, your Online Check-In and booking window will open 75 days prior to your sailing – and that date is fast approaching!  At the stroke of midnight (EST), you will be able to log-in to your “My Disney Cruise” account and get at it!  A little hint…you are not required to complete the Online Check-In before reserving onboard activities, so book those first and then complete the Online Check-In!  But do make sure you have your account set up prior to that day!

    Onboard activities you will want to try to reserve – complimentary character breakfast tickets – which are usually held on select sea days, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointments – I recommend earlier in the day so your princess can enjoy her makeover all day long!  You probably also want to try to get complimentary tickets for onboard character greetings, which vary by ship and itinerary.  And definitely reserve some adult-exclusive time – either at Palo or Senses or both!!  She will love her time in the Youth Clubs and you can enjoy some of the amenities catered to grownups!  And if at first you don't see what you want, keep checking back -- or check once onboard as things tend to open up!

    Wishing you a wonderful and MAGICal vacation!

    Happy Sailing!
