    Hi! My family and I are taking our first cruise in August. We are all super excited to see what DCL has to offer compared to our experiences at WDW. My question is, does DCL offer any “behind the magic” tours aboard their ships? Thanks for your help!

    Ahoy Justin!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so excited for your family to experience all of the Disney magic waiting for you during your high seas adventure this summer!  This may be your first time cruising with Captain Mickey, but be ready, as it won't be your last!  My family was hooked into a life at sea from the first moments we were onboard!

    It is always fun to get a glimpse of what is happening backstage behind that pixie dusted curtain.  Although Disney Cruise Line doesn't offer a formal tour like Walt Disney World Resort's "Behind the Magic" to lift the curtain, Captain Mickey gives you the opportunity to learn your way around the ship with a walking tour on embarkation day.  This event helps you to familiarize yourself with the layout of the ship with some fun facts along the way. 

    When I have sailed in the past, Disney Cruise Line has also offered an adult exclusive tour with a focus on the theming, art, music and décor of the ship.  Download and use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to watch for this tour during your sailing!  The Navigator App is similar to the My Disney Experience App you use while visiting Walt Disney World Resort.  It has the details you need to find all of the fun onboard including activities, character experiences and dinner menus!

    Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail on your very first cruise, Justin!  We love to help you chart a course toward a practically perfect vacation!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
