    Do I need to reserve tickets for character meets or are some random?

    Hi Ronda!

    Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is just around the corner and I am certain you are excitedly counting down the days until you’re off to sea with Captain Mickey!  Just a few more and then you’re off for some fun in the sun!

    One of best things (and believe me, there are a lot) about a Disney Cruise Line are the many opportunities for onboard character experiences!  Scheduled character appearances will be listed on your Personal Navigator or the Navigator app and do not require a ticket or reservation.  You will just want to plan to be at the specified location at the appearance time to secure a place in line.  During these Character appearances, an onboard photographer will be there to snap some photos of you with your favorite Disney character or a kind Cast Member is usually willing to snap a photo for you!  This is also the perfect opportunity to bring your autograph book or any other memorabilia you would like signed by the Characters!  In addition to the scheduled Character appearances, there are some appearances that require a complimentary ticket.  The complimentary tickets can be reserved through your “My Cruise Activities” under “Onboard Fun” up to three days prior to your sail date.

    If you are visiting Castaway Cay, be on the lookout for your favorite Characters on the island.  They, too, love to spend some time in the sun but will stop for some schedule appearances before enjoying their time on the island!

    Wishing you a magical vacation where all your DREAMs come true!

    Happy Sailing!
