    To sign up for excursions, will they list all that are available online when it is time to reserve them in advance of the cruise? Is this the same for ship activities?

    Welcome aboard, Dena! When you sail with Disney Cruise Line, you're in for all sorts of activities and entertainment, both onboard the ship and with Disney Cruise Line's Port Adventures, in the ports of call!

    Since this must be your very first sailing with Disney, you'll get to begin your online check-in 75 days prior to departure. Mark that date on your calendar and be sure to log in that day to begin choosing your Port Adventures and some other special ticketed events! You'll then be able to view what extras are available, like the Princess Gathering which is free but requires a reservation, the Frozen Meet and Greet, and more. You'll also get to book your Port Adventures here.

    But, you don't have to wait until then to explore the adventures and decide on your favorites, Dena! Check out the Port Adventures page. I spend so much time on there before we sail each time reading about the different adventures that are available and deciding which are must-do's for our family. My kids love to gather around the computer to see the photos and read the descriptions of each one. It really gets our whole family even more excited for the sailing! Just choose the itinerary you'll be enjoying, like Bahamas, for example, then the drop down box allows you to select the exact port of call. Choose, say, Nassau, and you'll get a list of what is available there. Usually, if it's listed that means it will be available to book for your cruise! You can get more specifics like meeting times for each adventure when you book them during online check-in. So, start browsing today and you'll be all set when your check-in begins, Dena!

    Have such fun planning and please feel free to cruise back over here with any other questions you might have as you count down to this exciting trip!
