    I am surprising my children with the cruise for Christmas... Will you guys send any Disney Cruise stuff.. like the little arm bands we get from Disney World?

    Hi Fatimah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What a MAGICAL surprise your kiddos are in for this Christmas!  I can already see the surprise and excitement that will come with finding out that they will soon be cruising with Captain Mickey on a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  My husband and I have often kept our upcoming voyages a surprise from our little boys and it’s always so fun to see the look of surprise on their faces when they realize where we are headed!  Except for that one time we woke them up REALLY REALLY early to catch a flight…well, we learned our lesson and started telling them at least the night before if we had an early travel day!

    If your children will be participating in the Oceaneer Club Lab onboard, they will receive an Oceaneer Band once you arrive at the port for check-in.  Oceaneer Bands are not sent ahead of time, but you can arrange for a call to surprise them of your impending Disney Cruise Line vacation!  You will be receiving some “Mickey Mail” in the next couple of weeks which will have your cruise booklet as well as luggage tags.  You could easily use this information booklet as a wrapped gift to surprise them!  In it you will find an itinerary as well as important travel information.  The luggage tags will be affixed to your luggage when you arrive at the port, so you may want to hold tight to those to ensure safe keeping!

    Another fun way to surprise them may be to gift a special shirt (matching even!) for everyone to wear on embarkation day!  You will take a group photo prior to embarkation that you will surely want to keep as a memory of this magical vacation so having everyone in their “Mickey gear” is always a great idea!

    Happy Sailing!
