    Hello! Can you tell me what time places for eating, swimming, etc. open the cruise? We are taking the Magic in April 2019. My kids are early risers so is it realistic to be able to have breakfast around 7 am and start swimming after? Are the pools heated?

    Hi there, Kendrick!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, fellow Texan!  I am so excited to hear you have a MAGICal adventure at sea on your calendar!  My family’s first adventure with Captain Mickey was aboard the Disney Magic and boy, oh boy did we have a great time!

    Like you, I have EARLY risers…no matter what I do or how late I try to keep my boys up, they always always always wake up earlier than I would like…especially when on vacation!  And when sharing a stateroom, if one wakes the other one wakes without a doubt!  But, rest (or not so much rest!) assured, you’ll be able to be up and at ‘em early in the day.  Cabanas begins serving breakfast usually between 7 and 7:30AM OR you can opt for Room Service to be delivered to your room even earlier than that if need be.  In the desk drawer of your stateroom you will find a continental breakfast order form that you can fill out and hang on your doorknob the night before and breakfast will be delivered to you!  We have started doing this with our guys allowing them to watch a few Disney Channel morning cartoons before getting ready for the day.  This allows Daddy some extra rest time and I usually hit the gym during this time to start my day.

    The pools open at varying time and your Personal Navigator or the Navigator app will have the hours of operation listed on it.  There are even some fun onboard activities that start early in the morning for those early risers, so check those out and head down for some morning fun for the kiddos!

    As your adventure approaches, please come back with any other planning questions you have!

    Happy Sailing!
