    Hello ladies January 31st will be my very 1st Disney Cruise for my daughter 5th birthday. One of the days we’ll be in Key West any suggestions?? What things is a MUST on this cruise?? I don’t wanna miss anything.

    Hi there, Syreeta!

    What a fun birthday your little one will have!  I have a 4 and a 5 year old and they absolutely love crusing and know they would be absolultey ectatic if we celebrated their birthdays onboard.  I will have to make that happen one of these days!   

    Key West is a great port because while there are some great Port Adventures excursions, its also a great place to just walk around and shop, people watch, relax and enjoy a fun afternoon!  When we stop there, we typically do just that – explore the town and always stop for some key lime pie!

    Prior to your sailing, I would suggest downloading the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app.  This will list the daily schedule of activities and Character appearances around the ship. I recommend looking at least a day ahead and tentatively plan out your following day's activities.  You can set alerts on the app that will remind you prior to the activity.  Believe me there will be more that you want to do than you will actually have time to do, so try your best, but be flexible!  

    Definitely try to book a complimentary Character Breakfast and/or a Princess Gathering ticket if offered on your sailing. This can be done online prior to your departure or onboard on Embarkation Day.  Or perhaps a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment may be in order for a special birthday princess?  Or an In-Room Gift package to commemorate the special trip?

    No matter what, this will be a birthday that your princess will never forget!  Have a magical and memorable time onboard!

    Happy Sailing!
