    Hi, this will be our first cruise on disney(dream). Our check in date is April 11th. Will there be any princess appt available.

    Hi Tarita!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can't wait for your inaugural sailing coming up right around the corner aboard the Disney Dream! Jumping online as soon as my advance booking window opens in order to book Port Adventures and onboard activities is one of my favorite steps in the planning process leading up to our voyage with Captain Mickey!

    Your online check-in date is almost here! I love that you're thinking ahead about all the excitement available for you to book in advance. I so wish there was a way for me to know if activities will still be available for you to reserve on April 11th. There are many princess-related things you can reserve in advance! For example, appointments at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a reservation for Royal Court Royal Tea and tickets to attend the Princess Gathering are all available to reserve in advance. If any of the events are sold out by April 11th, please stop by the Guest Services Desk as soon as you board the ship to see if any tickets or spots have become available. Also, keep checking back to "View or Add Activities" under "My Cruise Activities" on the Disney Cruise Line website because Guests often change their plans, so activities may open up! 

    If for some reason you're unable to reserve select times to mingle with your favorite princesses, don't worry! There will be multiple opportunities for your family to meet with their favorite Disney Characters throughout the cruise! Each day you'll find the schedule of character and princess appearances on your Personal Navigator newsletter and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Your pirate crew will have a chance to receive many hugs and take tons of pictures with Disney royalty throughout your voyage!

    Tarita, I'll be sending you tons of pixie dust on April 11th! Please visit us again with any future questions!
