    I want to start planning ahead for my Christmas 2016 Disney Cruise adventure. Thanks to my inner need to think way ahead about expenses and fun options, how do I find out about potential excursions and costs in advance?

    Ahoy, there!

    I busted out laughing when I read about your 'inner need to think way ahead', Jennifer! :-) That inner need is shared by just about every single Mom & Dad on the Disney Parks Moms Panel... so you are not alone. WE really do need this advance information... especially when it comes to anticipating and preparing for a budget. That's what I love about this panel -- each Mom is a great resource since someone has likely already experienced what you are about to experience, and they can share specific feedback that most Moms can relate to (ok... some Dads too!).

    You'll be day dreaming about how your week will flow... each days' events and activities... followed by what you might want to wear (since the pictures have to be awesome). Sailing on a Disney Very MerryTime Cruise is awesome -- you picked a great time to sail. The ship will be beautifully decorated and there are special themes and activities that will be arranged just for you and your family.

    The Port Adventures and other activities onboard are subject to change. Your sail date is a ways away, so as updates do happen frequently, keep tabs on the site and your My Cruise Activities site to make sure you've got the most up to date information. When your booking window opens, you'll have the finalized costs online. But to get your started, here's the Port Adventure Link that can give you an idea of how much each excursion will usually cost per person. Just choose your destination and the port of call that you'll be visiting. 

    I hope this helps, Jennifer. Have a great day!
