    We are taking our first Disney Cruise with extended family (6 adults, 6 kids 4-14) in February on the Magic. Will excursions automatically open up at midnight for me to book online or should I plan to be on the phone?

    Ahoy, Bernice!
    Congratulations on your first Disney Cruise! It sounds like you have quite the crew to experience the "Magic" of Disney at sea when you set sail in February! You'll find something for everyone on the spectacular Disney Magic!
    When your online booking window open up (75 days prior to departure), you will be able to book your Port Adventures during the online check-in process. This becomes available when the clock strikes midnight, so you'll want to have your selections and reservation number ready to go. It's a very easy process, and you'll be guided step-by-step.  Port arrival times, youth programming registration, adult-dining reservations, spa services and select character meet and greet opportunities can also be booked when this window opens up. 
    Bernice, I can't wait for your family to cast off on your magical voyage in just a couple of months! I hope it will be the the first of many vacations with Captain Mickey. Please keep us posted as you continue to plan.
    Have a magical day!
