    We're sailing on the Dream with another family this summer. Kids are age 10. What are the best times to ride the AquaDuck with the shortest wait? We don't want to miss out on other activities onboard. How crowded is AquaDuck when ship is docked in

    Ahoy Patrick!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love this question because I'm also a mom of a ten-year old, and I'm always trying to figure out the best time to experience an exhilarating ride on the AquaDuck. If your sailors are anything like mine, they want to ride over and over and over! I think my son rode over 50 times on our last cruise on the Disney Dream! If you can, I would hit the AquaDuck as soon as you board! It usually opens around noon that first afternoon so pack the swimsuits and sunscreen and hit the ground running! Hours of operation will be listed in your cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator, and on the free mobile Disney Cruise Navigator App each day. The line tends to be short when it first opens and once Guests start to leave the pool area in the late afternoon to get ready for the first dinner seating and the 6:15 p.m. show. But, the best time we have found to ride is at night (some nights it will be open until 10:00 p.m.). The view from the top is gorgeous, and it is so much fun zipping through the colorful tubes at night! When the ship docks at Castaway Cay, most Guests will go ashore so check the hours of operation because you may want to come back a little early to get in a few rides before the line gets long! 
    Patrick, I hope your crew has a splashtacular time getting swept away on the coolest water coaster at sea! Thank you for using the Moms Panel for all your cruise questions!
