    I'm taking a 5-day Marvel-at-Sea cruise on Magic in February with my 3-year-old daughter. It will be just the 2 of us on the cruise. Do you have any suggestions or tips for me as a single-parent family on the cruise?

    Hi Mimi!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for sailing by while you plan for your unforgettable MAGICal voyage with your little pirate princess! I just disembarked the Disney Magic and had so much fun onboard with my son. My most memorable dinner with him was definitely the night we dined at Rapunzel's Royal Table! Seeing him dance and smile while the Snuggly Duckling Thugs sang with Princess Rapunzel is something I'll never forget!

    You've chosen the most perfect cruise for a mommy-daughter adventure! You both will have so many opportunities to make memories together, but you'll also have plenty of chances for you to enjoy yourselves separately if you choose to do so! If your little one is fully toilet-trained, she can enjoy Disney's Oceaneer Club or Disney's Oceaneer Lab while you spend time in the adults-only Quiet Cove Pool or get a pampering service in Senses Spa & Salon. (If your daughter is not toilet-trained, no worries! For an additional charge, you can schedule time in "it's a small world" nursery! for her when you enjoy time on your own!) There are also daily meet-ups for single parents, too! This would be a fun opportunity for you to meet new friends during your trip!

    You can look forward to every Cast Member going out of their way to make your voyage as smooth-sailing as possible. Your Server and Assistant Server will make dinners so much fun and care-free for the both of you, allowing you to sit back, relax and just enjoy being with your daughter! Don't forget that your stateroom will always be just steps away! You can always head back to change for a quick swim or for a mid-day break.

    Mimi, I know you're going to have so much fun together!
