    We will be making our final payment in a few weeks for our April cruise. What are examples of the activities that we haven't been able to sign up for and what ones could actually be unavailable?

    Ahoy Aaron!
    Making your final payment means that your magical sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line is quickly approaching! I'm sure your crew is counting down the days until it's your turn to enjoy all that a Disney Cruise has to offer!
    Once you are all paid up, you will be able to secure your Port Adventures, adult-dining reservations at Palo and Remy (Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy only), the nursery, spa treatments, and the cabanas on Castaway Cay online. Some more popular Port Adventures will sell out prior to sailing as well as the cabanas on Castaway Cay. Palo and Remy both offer brunch and dinner so you will most likely get a reservation, but some times and days will be reserved quickly. If you don't get the exact day/time you are hoping for you can check once you board the ship as some reservations are held back for embarkation day. 
    Once onboard you will want to check your Personal Navigator (the daily cruise newsletter) for ticketed events such as the Princess Gathering, Frozen Meet & Greet or a possible character breakfasts (offered only on the longer sailing). Beverage seminars and some fitness classes do require a sign-up on the ship and are offered at a nominal fee. I'm not sure which sailing you have booked, but be sure to check the front page of your Personal Navigator or stop by Guest Services with any questions about booking activities onboard. 
    You can pre-register your children ages 3-17 for the youth programming online before you set sail, but you will need to stop by the first afternoon to pick up their magic band.
    Thank you for stopping by the Moms Panel, Aaron! If you think of any other questions, please let me know!
