    Hi! I'm so excited for our first cruise but I'm feeling anxious because the more experienced cruisers are able to book their port adventures before us. Can you tell me, in general, which Western Caribbean port adventures tend to sell out first?

    Ahoy, Billi!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your inaugural voyage on Disney Cruise Line! I'm so excited for you to experience all the pixie dust and adventure on every deck of your upcoming cruise. Each evening your Stateroom Host/Hostess will leave a Personal Navigator newsletter detailing the schedule of activities for the following day. We love going through the newsletter before bed and highlighting all the fun we want to "sea" and do the next day.

    I completely understand your worry about seasoned cruisers' advance booking windows opening before yours, enabling them to reserve Port Adventures and onboard activities earlier than first-time cruisers. Thinking about it, the only Port Adventures offered during a Western Caribbean Cruise that sell out quickly are the private cabanas you can reserve during your stop at Castaway Cay. In my opinion, you have a fantastic chance of reserving the excursions that are at the top of your list!

    Now is the perfect time to check out all the exciting Port Adventures offered for each port of call during your Caribbean cruise. My family usually makes a list of our top three excursions for each stop in the itinerary, so once our advance booking window opens, we're ready with our first, second and third choice - just in case one happens to be sold out. We've loved every Port Adventure we've ever taken through Disney Cruise Line!

    Billi, I can't wait for you to explore these beautiful ports of call during your upcoming Disney Cruise. If you have any future questions, please sail back and visit us again! We're here to help you navigate through the planning process!
