    Hello! I am taking the Disney Magic the week of Christmas, very excited! But I'm a nervous wreck trying to figure out what holiday activities are available and which ones I need to sign up asap. Any suggestions?

    Welcome aboard, Kavitha! Congratulations on your upcoming Very Merrytime Cruise on the Disney Magic this winter!

    There are so many exciting holiday activities to experience while you're onboard the ship. I don't know of any of these holiday-themed events that require a pre-registration, so just show up and plan to enjoy every moment! You'll not want to miss the first night's King Triton's Tree Lighting Ceremony where one lucky child will get to help light the Christmas tree. The Deck the Deck holiday party will be a fun one, too, with music, dancing, games and characters! Read about more fun to expect on Disney Cruise Line's website. And once you're onboard, be sure to check your Personal Navigator each day. This schedule of the events and activities onboard will be delivered to your stateroom each night so you can plan for the following day's activities!

    As far as signing up ahead of time, if you are interested in dining in Palo, the Adult Exclusive restaurant onboard, which I highly recommend, do book that as soon as possible. First time Disney cruisers can log into their reservation to begin online check in 75 days prior to sailing and begin booking extras like this. You will also want to check out all the exciting Port Adventures that Disney offers.

    I hope that helps as you count down these last couple of months until you set sail! Let me know if I can help with anything else before you set sail, Kavitha!
