    Sailing on the Disney Dream December 9-14 2023! Looking forward to the Christmas tree lighting but also have an activity reserved for 6:00. Will the Tree lighting overlap or I interfere with my paid activity? My 24 hour window for cancellation is a conc

    Hi, Debbie! I see you love the holidays as much as I do. Welcome to planDisney!

    I hope you’re ready for a sleigh full of holiday fun aboard the Disney Dream! On the first night of your Very Merrytime sailing, gather around the three-deck tall Christmas tree in the atrium to celebrate the season with Mickey and his Pals. The tree lighting ceremony occurs between the two dinner times at approximately 7:30 p.m. You will want to check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you board the ship for the exact showtime for your sailing.

    Before you know it, you’ll be soaking up some vitamin SEA at Disney Castaway Cay. Make sure you take a picture in front of the island’s larger-than-life tree. Seeing the “snowman” dressed in island attire is another fun photo spot. Disney photographs are on hand to capture these special moments. Ask the photographers about Magic Shots. You never know who might end up in your picture. 

    You might want to review the Prohibited Items list as you finalize your packing list. One commonly confiscated item is extension cords. If you plan to bring a multi-port charger, make sure it plugs directly into an outlet and has USB output ports only. 

    I'm thankful you asked your question here at planDisney. I hope your cruise is filled with merry memories. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
