    Recently I found out I am pregnant. However, I would still like to book the cruise and take my new little one. When booking it asks for the baby’s name however, I do not yet know the name. Would it be better to wait or would it be easy to update the name?

    Welcome aboard, Nishma!

    We are so glad you stopped by planDisney with your very exciting question! First and foremost, congratulations on your new little sailor! Now you have two special countdowns to look forward to!

    Since every passenger, regardless of age is included in the maximum capacity of not only individual staterooms but also the ship's capacity, you will want to include your little one in your reservation when you make it. You can do this by simply indicating the correct number of Guests in your stateroom and entering "TBD" for your baby's name. You should also be able to leave the date of birth and gender blank for now. When you have your little one's legal name and birthdate, you can call Disney Cruise Line and ask them to make the appropriate changes. If you have any issues with the booking process, I recommend you call and ask a Cast Member to assist you with the reservation. 

    Nishma, please remember for most itineraries, the minimum age to sail is 6 months at the time of embarkation. For some itineraries, the age is one year old. You will also need to secure the proper travel documentation for your child prior to setting sail. I know you will be busy preparing for your bundle of joy's arrival and the days following will be filled with excitement, so please keep these important details in mind. I'm sure that you will find the right cruise at the right time for you and your growing family!

    Disney Cruise Line hopes to make smooth sailing out of vacations for families, Nishma! You can purchase baby supplies onboard at the shops (you may have to ask for items if you don't see them on display). You can also request items such as a Pack N' Play for your stateroom. And, if you decide you want some "me time" during your cruise, your little one will be well cared for in the "it's a small world" nursery!

    We are so happy for you and your wonderful news, Nishma! I hope this information is helpful and that you will visit us again soon with other questions.

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
