    I'm traveling on the Disney Wonder in October '17, this is families first cruise. When can we begin to book meet and greets? are there any other shows or things we need reservations for outside of the adult only restaurants? I have a 6 year old.

    Hi Lisette!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your family's first Disney Cruise Line cruise! You are going to have a WONDERful time sailing the high seas to paradise this upcoming October! There will be so much fun in store for you and your pirate princess from the moment you step onboard the Disney Wonder.

    As soon as your cruise is paid in full and your advance booking window opens, you'll be able to start booking all the onboard fun, like Character Greetings! For first-time cruisers, your advance booking window and Online Check-in opens 75 days prior to setting sail. Even though you're not quite yet able to begin booking activities, I suggest looking at the Disney Cruise Line website and creating a list of all the fun you want to make reservations for so you're ready to begin the moment your advance booking window opens!

    Besides reserving complimentary tickets to select Character Greetings, you can book Port Adventures, make reservations to pamper yourself at Senses Spa & Salon, schedule a princess transformation for your daughter at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique as well as make reservations for Royal Court Royal Tea as soon as your advance booking window opens! You do not need to make reservations for any of the Broadway-style shows playing throughout your cruise. Seats to each performance are on a first come, first served basis but don't worry, there are plenty of seats for everyone! Be sure not to miss Frozen, A Musical Spectacular! 

    Please visit us again as you continue planning for your inaugural cruise with Captain Mickey!
