    When do I need to provide the final names for those of us going on a cruise? We're cruising in July, final payment due in April. My son is being adopted and his last name will change Apr/May. Will I be able to change it then?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heidi!

    Congratulations to your family on the adoption of your son!  Spending some time together on a high seas adventure sounds like the perfect way to celebrate this milestone.  I cannot wait for you to create so many magical memories together with Captain Mickey!

    Good news!  As long as your son is originally included in your reservation when you submit your final payment in April, you may change his name on your reservation up to the day before you sail.  I would recommend as soon as the adoption and his name change are finalized, contact Disney Cruise Line to make the change as far in advance as possible.  I would also ask them to note your reservation that you are celebrating!

    To surprise your family with a little pixie dust once onboard, check out the stateroom decorations and treats offered through Onboard Gifts.  The Hero Experience in the Dark looks so fun!

    During your cruise, don't miss the great onboard activities you can enjoy together as a family.  My family loves participating in the game shows and dance parties in the D Lounge.  Your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App will be your guide and provide the locations and times for all of these events.

    Check back in with the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions about your magical getaway!  Enjoy every moment together!
