    Hello! First time cruisers on Disney traveling with a 7 year old girl and 4 year old boy on the Disney Magic in October to Bahamas. Looking for advice on excursions or cruise activities to book. thank you!

    Ahoy, Mia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your inaugural Disney Cruise! It looks like you're setting sail on the 8-Night Halloween on the High Seas Bahamian Cruise from New York with Marvel Day at Sea! You've chosen such an exciting itinerary for your family's first voyage with Captain Mickey.

    You will receive a Personal Navigator newsletter in your stateroom each evening. This newsletter will have all the onboard activities scheduled for the following day. I suggest looking through it each evening with your family so you can plan all the fun for the next day! Halloween on the High Seas will be a spooktacular time with trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, dance parties and more! Definitely bring costumes for your son and daughter! Other activities I recommend scheduling in advance are: Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Royal Court Royal Tea and ticketed Character Greetings.

    A one-day ticket with Park Hopper Option to Walt Disney World Resort is included with your voyage, so I highly recommend visiting "The Most Magical Place On Earth" when stopping at Port Canaveral! Nassau, Bahamas has so many fun Port Adventures to choose from. My favorite is the Atlantis Aquaventure! There's so much to do on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! Your little cruisers are going to love the Youth Club, Scuttle's Cove, on the island!

    I know I just bombarded you with tons of ideas! Please come back and visit us again if you have any questions! We're here to make your inaugural Disney Cruise MAGICal!
