    First Disney Cruise - have a 12, 6 and 3 year old.....any inside on what to take, what to do, etc. Thank You! Pictures as well, take our own or what is offered?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shannon!

    Well shiver me timbers!  A pirate's maiden voyage is very special.  I am so excited to hear you are taking your entire pirate crew on an adventure with Captain Mickey!  There is a bountiful amount of treasure included in your Disney Cruise Line vacation.  Batten down the hatches, I'm about to give you a crash course in sailing the high seas!

    First, Disney Cruise Line has made it easy with packing lists to ensure your crew has all the goods they need for smooth sailing.  Beyond their list, I find it helpful to add clothes pins, a pop up hamper and a small, magnetic dry erase board to leave messages for each other.

    There are countless onboard activities for your swashbuckling team of sailors to participate in while onboard.  Don't miss the Broadway caliber shows each night in the Walt Disney Theater, family games and events in the D Lounge or all of the Pirate Night activities.  Your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App will serve as your telescope to find all of these events during your sailing.

    Your pirates in training won't want to miss all of the fun in the youth clubs while you enjoy the adults exclusive areas like the Quiet Cove Pool, Palo or Senses Spa and Salon.  But make sure to carve out some time for a little family Arrr! and Arrr! at the onboard pools and explore your ports of call with Port Adventures.  Capture all of these great moments on your personal camera or by taking advantage of the professional onboard photography.  Pre-purchase your photography package to get the best price!

    Blimey!  That is a lot of treasure to haul for any landlubber.  Don't walk the plank if you have trouble navigating the rest of your plans.  Sail back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and we will help you chart a course to your perfect vacation!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
