    I am a first-time cruiser taking a trip with the family (all adults) on the Magic. All reservations are under my name. Does each member need the DCL Navigator app (under my login info) on their iPhone to access DCL-Guest wifi to use iMessage? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney Jon!

    Each person in your travel crew will want to have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app downloaded on their phone. Once onboard the beautiful Disney Magic, they will log in and with their cruise reservation number and birthday. You will then be connected and will be able to set-up the CHAT feature to text each other onboard. 

    To use imessage, both the DCL guest and the person they are texting back on land must have imessage enabled. Turn your device to airplane mode, turn wifi on, and select DCL-Guest. This will allow messages to be sent and received but please note this is text only, photos or videos will not send with this option. 

    If anyone in your travel party needs internet services, you may purchase a package once onboard. Your options and pricing will be available on your Navigator app. Choose the package that suits your needs. I can get by without buying internet and simply text home. However, an internet package will be needed if you plan to check your email or post to social media sites. 

    I hope you and your travel crew have a MAGICal cruise where WISHes and DREAMs come true!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
