    What’s the first few musts for fun when you arrive on dream cruise

    Hi there, Lynne, and welcome to planDisney!

    It's almost that enchanting moment when you transition into vacation mode! I can't wait for the cheering crew members to welcome you aboard the Disney Dream. It’s an unforgettable way to enter the ship. Thank you for stopping by planDisney looking for recommendations. I’m happy to share my top tips with you! 

    Now, when you reach the terminal and find yourself eagerly awaiting your boarding group number to be called, pull out your smartphone and open up the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to take a peek at the Daily Activity Schedule. You just might stumble upon something that catches your eye that first day. If you see an activity that piques your interest, tap the heart icon next to it to "favorite" it. That way, you'll receive a handy push notification about 15 minutes beforehand. Plus, you can plan out your days in advance, ensuring you don't miss any of the fun.

    Now, speaking of fun, the first stop for my family is always Cabanas for lunch. If you see a long line on one side, try the other – the left side is usually less crowded. Once our bellies are full, it's time to dive into the excitement! We typically head straight to the youth clubs during Open House hours. Sometimes, we'll kick things off with a trivia session or even change into our swimsuits for a splash in the pool. If you're feeling adventurous, don't forget to pack your swimsuit, coverup, and sunscreen in your day bag so you can experience the thrill of the AquaDuck – a must-try raft “water coaster” at sea!

    But wait, the excitement doesn't stop there! You absolutely can't miss the Sailing Away Deck Party! Mickey, Minnie, and the whole gang will help you kick off your vacation in style. Get ready to wave goodbye to the terminal because you've got five days of non-stop fun ahead of you! 

    With so much to explore and enjoy, your vacation on board the Disney Dream is bound to be filled with unforgettable moments. Have a great time, Lynne!

    SEAS the adventure!
