    I’m leaving in 9 days to my first Disney cruise, the weather is telling me thunderstorms! Can I book the excursions the day off? If not and I book them ahead of time, if I cancel due to weather will I be charge?

    Ahoy, Linda!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You must be about to burst with excitement that your cruise is so close. The coming days may be a little hectic as you pack and get ready to travel, but it will all be worth it when you are magically welcomed aboard by the Cast and Crew of Disney Cruise Line! I know you can't wait. 

    Linda, I've been known to obsess over weather forecasts predictions, particularly when traveling! It is hard not to worry, especially when rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast. The good news is the forecast can change constantly, and many times, they are quick storms or showers. Excursions can be reserved onboard, but are subject to availability. The Port Adventure Desk on the Disney Dream opens at 8:00 a.m. on the morning the ship will be docked in Nassau. If you need help with a Port Adventure on the morning of Castaway Cay, you can stop by as early as 7:00 a.m. The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app will have the hours of operation each day in case you forget. If you decide you don't want to wait and book ahead of time, Port Adventures canceled due to weather or an itinerary change are fully refundable. You still have time to reserve some fun ashore since reservations can be made online up to three days before you cruise departure.

    I'm so glad you cruised by with another question, Linda. You'll be experiencing all a Disney Cruise has to offer soon, and you'll be able to leave all your worries behind! If you think of anything else, please let us know. 

    Bon Voyage!
