    Ok so i really want to book a trip to Europe with my 7year old daughter and my 2month old son I had a question about where would i be boarding? If not in the u.s.a .... does that mean i have to buy plane tickets to the ship location?im currently in C.

    Welcome aboard, Christine! Disney Cruise Line's European sailings are truly magical, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I hope your family is able to enjoy next summer! I was fortunate enough to head overseas to join Disney Cruise Line in Europe last month and got to explore the amazing ports of call and some truly over-the-top Port Adventures. Disney really knows how to make exploring Europe easy and fun for families!

    Next summer, Disney Cruise Line will be offering European itineraries originating in both Venice, Italy and Barcelona, Spain. Guests fly into one of those cities to board the ship and return to that city upon disembarkation. 

    Your daughter will have a blast learning about the ports she is to visit because onboard, Disney's Cast Members and Youth Clubs offer a wide variety of activities for kids to get them immersed in the culture of the port they are about to visit. For example before visiting Naples, kids will be learning about volcanos and the history of Mt. Vesuvius, then building their own volcano and watching it explode! What a learning adventure! If your son is two months old now, he'll be at a great age next summer to come along on the ship. The nursery will be happy to have him spend fun time there while you head off on some adult activities, but of course there will be a great number of exciting Port Adventures for the whole family too!

    Disney Cruise Line partners with hotels in Venice and Barcelona to offer stays before or after your sailing, depending on when you fly in. Ground transportation can also be arranged through Disney.
    Let me know if you have further questions as you continue to plan, Christine!
