    We are sailing Dec.7th on the Disney Magic. This is our first cruise. Is there a way to find out which movies will be showing and which Disney Characters will be available for our children to meet.

    Congratulations on your upcoming very first Disney Cruise, Leona!

    I have met so many first-time cruisers who have quickly turned into repeat cruisers on the Disney Cruise. It's really great to hear about various family's experiences, and I get to hear the constant feedback that they all had a wonderful time sailing with Disney. It will be an awesome holiday cruise for you and your family. In addition to the many special touches that Disney Cruise offers, you get the additional holiday touch on your Very Merrytime Cruise. You and your buccaneers will have such a blast! 

    Character schedules and appearances constantly change on all the ships. But guaranteed, you'll get a good mix of the popular Disney characters taking a peek at what you and your family are up to, during your voyage. You'll see characters walking around the ship, but you'll also get a chance to see them at scheduled meet and greet sessions. Make sure to check the Personal Navigator each night for the following days' schedule of character appearances. I suggest arriving at the venue at least 30 minutes early to fall in line, and don't forget to bring your camera and your autograph book.
    You'll enjoy current Disney movies showing at the Buena Vista Theater on your cruise. First-run movies and premiers happen out on the high seas too. There will be several showings of the newest popular Disney films, and every so often one of the classics will be on too. The schedule may change, so please check the Personal Navigator. Big Hero 6 will likely be showing then!

    Have a great time enjoying Disney differently, Leona! Please let us know if you have any other questions we can help with. ~ Dolly
