    Ii was wanting to see about the Disney magic bands and if there will be offered on my cruise ship? Also how do you pay for the excursions ahead of time?

    Ahoy, Tonya! We appreciate you stopping by planDisney and asking us your questions. 

    Yippee! I’m excited to share that DisneyBand+ is now available to purchase for sailings on the Disney Wish. As long as your reservation is paid in full and you’re within 45-11 days of your sail date, you can purchase a DisneyBand+. 

    Sign in to your Disney account on the Disney Cruise Line website and navigate to Already Booked > My Reservations > Purchase DisneyBand+. You can select and customize a DisneyBand+ for everyone in your travel party. Tonya, I can’t wait for your family to be among the first to experience this new technology at sea.

    As for your second question, Port Adventures are charged to your onboard account once you’re on the ship. Like you, I like to have any big purchases paid for before embarkation. One option is to put a credit on your stateroom account. You can do this from home under Already Booked > Onboard Gifts > Shop by Category > Onboard Credit.  You can purchase credit for yourself that can be used to cover Port Adventures, spa treatments, gratuities, and more – anything that you might charge to your account. Any unused credits will be returned to your credit card. 

    One piece of technology you don't want to overlook is the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. The app puts helpful onboard information in the palm of your hand. You can check your stateroom balance, talk with your travel party, and get information about your ports of call. It's also your guide to all the entertainment happening on your cruise. 

    I wish you smooth sailing as you plan for your exciting voyage. I’d love to chat with you again!

    SEAS the adventure!
