    Are the only port adventures available the ones that appear on the app? There were more on the Disney cruise line website than what's on the app.

    Ahoy there, Stacey!  

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney with an important question about the Port Adventures available for your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation. No matter your ship or itinerary, Port Adventures are a special way to personalize your vacation as you plan your day in beautiful ports of call in stunning destinations.  

    You’re smart to browse the Disney Cruise Line website to see potential Port Adventures in each port of call before it’s time to book. If you navigate to Port Adventures and filter by destination, you can see the full list of what may be available to reserve through Disney Cruise Line. Then, when it’s time to reserve activities for your cruise, you will see the exact offerings by date and time for your exact cruise. You can see these by logging into the Disney Cruise Line website and navigating to your reservation, or within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App.

    Disney has partnerships with carefully vetted experienced local guides who offer these specific tours and times exclusively for Disney Cruise Line Guests. There are many factors that could affect what you’re seeing, based on specific availability that week or seasonality of their business that we don’t have insights into. Guests research these adventures many months, often years in advance, so the general offerings listed on the site may differ from what is available to reserve at your exact sailing. 

    If many Guests on your sailing have already reserved a particular Port Adventure and it is no longer available, it will still be listed but showing “Sold Out.” If you try to reserve a certain Port Adventure and not everyone in your party is available to select, there is likely an age restriction on the activity preventing someone from being added to the Port Adventure reservation.

    My family likes to consider our entire cruise experience when selecting our own Port Adventures, Stacey. We like a variety of activities and may not select a catamaran in more than one port of call, or two snorkeling days in a row, for example. When we recently sailed to Alaska, we wanted to do something on the water, in the forest, and into the mountains for a complete experience over the course of the week.

    I hope you can find something that suits your family’s interest, ages, and abilities. I encourage you to sign up for something but then keep checking the website as your sail date approaches for any other openings. You aren’t charged for the adventure until once onboard, so be sure to review the details and cancel within three days of sailing if needed. Please know that reservations for popular experiences can fill up quickly. The Port Adventures Desk onboard is always available to provide additional guidance or help find some last-minute availability for your family.  

    Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this special vacation. 

    Wishing you a practically perfect sailing,
