    I was listenting to an older podcast the other day from March 2012. They mentioned that Disney Cruise Line has a character tuck-in service for kids?  I found it in Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships 2011 page 367 third paragraph.

    Welcome aboard, Robert! Disney Cruise Line is such a wonderful way to vacation, and it sounds like you must have a cruise planned for your family in the near future. With so much to offer every age, you're in for a real treat!

    Disney Cruise Line does not offer a character tuck-in service in staterooms. However, there are plenty of opportunities to interact with the characters onboard the ships. In fact, our family loves meeting the characters on the ships even better than in the parks. The lines are much shorter, and there are also lots of opportunities to accidentally run into a character in the halls or by the pool. These unexpected meetings have provided so many magical memories for our family. Where else can you find Peter Pan tapping you on the shoulder and running to hide around the corner, then popping back out again to surprise you again?

    In the Youth Clubs, the characters stop in now and then to interact with the kids, play games, read stories and lead them through activities. If you have children between the ages of three and 12, they will have a wonderful time in the Oceaneer Club and Lab. Tweens have their own space, Edge, and Teens have their very own place to hang out called Vibe. 

    Each day on the ship, you will receive a Personal Navigator. This is a listing of the schedule of events and activities planned for that day and night. One entire line is dedicated to listing all of the character meet and greets, along with their times and locations. Take a look each day and plan to swing by the location listed if you see a Disney friend that your little ones are excited to meet.

    I hope that helps as you continue to plan your cruise, Robert. Please feel free to stop back with any other questions you might have! I'm happy to help!
