    We're sailing on the Fantasy April 6th-13th for my son's 2nd birthday. His favorite movies are Moana and Princess and the Frog. Will there be characters from those movies onboard? Do we have a list of which characters will be onboard prior to?

    Hello again, Ashlyn! Welcome back to planDisney. I'm so glad you thought to return with another question. 

    How wonderful that you'll be celebrating your son's birthday onboard the Disney Fantasy! What a fantastic way to spend a birthday. I'm wishing lots of joy and happiness for your family while you are onboard. 

    As an enthusiastic planner, I wish there was a way to know exactly which Disney Characters you might meet while sailing with Disney Cruise Line, but it isn't always possible to know who will be on the ship. The last time I was on the Disney Fantasy, I met Princess Tiana. I'm hoping she will drop in for a chance to see your son and wish him a Happy Birthday! I haven't seen Moana onboard the Fantasy, but I did say hello to her last summer on the Disney Wish. I'm crossing my fingers that you'll see her too. 

    Once you are onboard the ship, you can access the Daily Activity Schedule within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. The schedule will list the times and locations of Character meeting opportunities so you can plan out who you will meet and when it will be best for your schedule. If you select the Disney Character's name, you'll see additional times to meet them throughout your voyage. I recommend that you head to the meeting area a little before the Disney Character arrives. The lines can build quickly once guests spot their favorite Characters!

    Ashlyn, each Disney Cruise ship features different restaurants and entertainment opportunities. The next time you decide to set sail with Disney, you might be interested in booking a cruise on the Disney Wonder for a chance to dine in Tiana's Place. Here you'll enjoy live jazz music, tasty beignets, and a party atmosphere with Princess Tiana herself!

    The Disney Treasure will be the next Disney Cruise Line ship in the fleet (setting sail in December 2024) and I've heard that a new stage show, Disney The Tale of Moana, will take guests on an adventurous journey with Moana through music and dance. I can't wait to see it!

    With so many experiences to be had on what will soon be six ships, the adventures with Disney Cruise Line are always on the horizon. You can take advantage of an onboard booking offer within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app while sailing to enjoy a discount on a future cruise. 

    Please return to planDisney if you have more questions. My fellow panelists and I love to help! 

    Happy Planning,
