    We will be sailing out of New York this Nov. My question is about our day in Disney World. We are interested in the VIP excursions. How will scheduling transportation and passes work with this?

    Hi there, Barbara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You have an incredible cruise planned with a fun filled itinerary!  My family did a NYC cruise with a day at Walt Disney World this past fall and it was such a blast.  Not only do you get to enjoy everything Disney Cruise Line has to offer onboard and at Castaway Cay, but you ALSO get a day at the theme parks!  And all aboard the newly revamped Disney Magic!  What fun is awaiting you!!  

    When the Magic arrives at Port Canaveral you will board buses to head to the theme parks.  In the past, you have been able to choose your departure time and to which Walt Disney World theme park you want to head to initially when your Online Check-In and Reservation window opens.  Your One-Day Park Hopper ticket with three generic FastPass+ opportunities will be loaded onto your Key to the World Card.  You will not have to pre-reserve your FastPass+ selections, but you can swipe your card at the attraction's FastPass+ line and proceed without a special reservation!  Once your three have been used, you can go to the FastPass+ kiosks to add on single selections.

    You will have the opportunity to visit as many theme parks as your personal schedule allows for before departing back for the ship!  From rope drop to fireworks you can see it all!  The best part about your particular itinerary is that the following day is a scheduled “Day at Sea” so you will have the perfect excuse to sleep in and lounge poolside!

    I know you will have a MAGICal sailing with many memories made – both at sea and on land!

    Happy Sailing!
