    We are traveling on the Disney Fantasy over the Christmas holiday. Our family of five (children ages 2 to 13) and grandparents. Is there anything special you recommend we pack on this trip that might be different from other cruises throughout the year?

    Welcome aboard, Sasha! Sailing with Disney Cruise Line is always special, but there is definitely some extra magic in store for you on this Very Merrytime Cruise!

    Since your sailing will include a formal night and semi-formal night that don't fall on the actual Christmas holiday, you may want to pack an additional dressy outfit for each of your family members so you can get in the spirit during Christmas dinner. Many guests who sail over Christmas also pack a few gifts to exchange, so if you have space, you may want to do that. Alternatively, a Disney gift card certainly makes an easy to pack and very appreciated gift onboard. You can spend these in the gift shop, or add them to your stateroom account to help pay for any purchases you make with your Key To The World card. The kids may like to know they can pick out their own gift!

    I hope you have been able to browse the exciting activities and events that are planned for your holiday cruise over on the Disney Cruise Line website, Sasha! You're in for an amazing Christmas this year!
    Please let me know if I can help with anything else as you continue to plan!
