    Hi there! I am leaving for a Disney cruise in 5 days and I was unable to book any character meet and greets or the character breakfast due them all being sold out. Can I see if there are last minute spots when I board the ship on embarkation day?

    Ahoy, Lisa!

    Woo Hoo! You are cruising THIS week! I know your crew is about to burst with excitement now that you have only a few days left to go. I'm sorry you were not able to secure complimentary tickets to the Character Meet-n-Greets and the Character Breakfast ahead of time, but I do have some helpful information to share with you about securing your spot onboard. Disney Cruise Line does hold back a limited number of tickets for embarkation day. Once you board the ship, you'll want to head straight to the Port Adventure Desk to inquire about availability. The desk will open as soon as boarding begins, which is usually around 11:30 a.m. I hope some pixie dust will be sprinkled your way when you visit the desk! 

    Lisa, how's the packing going? I always refer to the Disney Cruise Line Packing List in the final days, so I don't forget anything important. I typically over pack, but find the storage in the stateroom quite spacious especially under the bed. I bring a pop-up hamper in the bottom of our largest suitcase to place in the closet to collect our dirty clothes, which really comes in handy if I want to throw a load or two in the wash while aboard. If I don't have time to wash, I just pull out a suitcase from under the bed and pack it full of dirty clothes each time it fills up. By the time the cruise is over, a lot of my packing is already done! 

    I hope your crew has the most magical time on the high seas, Lisa! If you have any other last minute questions, please let us know. 

    Bon Voyage!
