    We are thrilled for our March 26, 2018 cruise (1st timers) on the Dream. Is there any way to see the onboard activities, shows, characters in advance? I'd love to have a plan ready for when our booking window opens up. Thanks in advance!!

    Hi Marisa!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can hear your excitement through your question! Eeee! Congratulations on booking your inaugural voyage with Captain Mickey aboard the Disney Dream! You've chosen an incredible itinerary because you'll get to spend a day at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. I can't wait for you to see the island for yourself!

    I love that you're ready and wanting to begin planning your Disney Cruise before your advance booking window opens. I'm the same way! The best place to start researching onboard activities is right on the Disney Cruise Line website. If you hover your mouse over the "Things to Do" tab on the website, you'll find a drop down of activities offered onboard! This is also where you'll find the exciting Port Adventures offered at each port of call. Take advantage of the Free Cruise Planning Tools, too! Once your sail date gets closer, you'll also be able to find out a list of movies playing in the Buena Vista Theatre during your voyage! 

    In preparation for your Online Check-in, I recommend making a list of your top three Port Adventures for each port of call, as well as any onboard activities that require advance booking such as services at Senses Spa & Salon, adult-only dining, magical transformations at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Royal Court Royal Tea and complimentary tickets to the Princess Gathering. This way, you'll be ready to begin booking all the fun as soon as your advance booking window opens!

    Marisa, if you think of any other questions while preparing for your first Disney Cruise, please don't hesitate to sail back and visit us again!
