    First Disney Cruise in May 2017! How far in advance do I book nursery times, dinner at Remi, and shore excursions? We will have a 1 year old and a 8 year old with us. I have WDW Fast Pass+ and ADR down pat, but this is all new!

    Ahoy, Cassie!
    What exciting news! I know you are looking forward to an enchanted journey onboard the most magical cruise line on the high seas in 2017. The planning now begins as you count down the days until you discover the magic of Disney at sea. I enjoy the planning almost as much as the cruise itself, so I hope you will too! Since you are scheduled to sail on May 19, 2017, you will be able to secure your nursery times, adult-dining at Remy, Port Adventures and maybe a spa treatment or two on March 5, 2017. This is 75 days prior to your departure, which is the day all new cruisers can book online. On that day, you will be able to login to your cruise reservation on the Disney Cruise Line website as early as midnight (Eastern Standard Time). Reservations can be made or modified online up to three days prior to your departure. 
    Please keep us posted as you think of additional cruise questions, Cassie! Continue to browse the Disney Cruise Line website and the Disney Parks Moms Panel to soak in all the information you can!
    Have a magical day and happy planning!
