    I'm making our packing list for our Dream cruise which is in a month - do we need to bring beach towels? Any other suggestions for our 3 & 2 year old boys to bring?

    Ahoy Kimberly!
    It is great to hear from you again!  The months have certainly flown by and your magical voyage is just around the corner!  I'm sure your two princes are excited about seeing their pal, Mickey and all his seafaring crew on your February sailing! 
    As you plan what to bring, be sure to leave the bulky beach towels at home because Disney Cruise Line provides them both on the pool deck and when you disembark the ship in Castaway Cay.  When my son was younger, I always packed him a small backpack with a few toys for the stateroom that could keep him occupied when we were getting ready for dinner or having some downtime.  I also brought a few of his drinking cups to have in the room as well.  An over-the-door shoe holder is also great because you can hang it on the bathroom door to keep sunscreen, room keys, small toys, and other odds and ends.  I also always throw a highlighter into the suitcase so I can mark any events we don't want to miss in the Personal Navigator, the daily cruise newsletter.  I carry this newsletter around with me so we don't miss a thing!  One last thing you might want to consider, is a small bag of pool toys-cups, bucket, watering can that your boys can play with while they enjoy the pool area and Nemo's Reef. These types of things always kept my son occupied a bit longer in the water.  They are also great for when you visit Castaway Cay too.
    I hope my suggestions help, Kimberly!  As you continue to count down your last month, please keep me posted with other questions that may come up!  I'm always happy to help!
    Have a magical day!
