    Hi- trying to plan for our trip August 12th (Magic out of NYC)- It's our first cruise (myself, dh, dd's 10, 9, 5 & ds, 7)! I can't book any excurions, experiences until May 29th, but will there be any info available before that? Any help is appreciate

    Ahoy Tricia!

    Congratulations on your first cruise aboard the magnificent Disney Magic!  Cruising from the Big Apple is going to be an amazing experience for your family's first voyage!  I can still remember my family's excitement at their first sight of the Disney Magic, and it was just the beginning of many magical moments with Disney Cruise Line!  I'm sure you are looking forward to making your own pixie dusted memories on your sailing.

    Your eight-night cruise includes four glorious days at sea and three wonderful ports of call!  Even though you can't book your Port Adventures and onboard experiences until May 29th, you can check out the variety of options at  The Port Adventure information can be located by checking Nassau, Port Canaveral, and Castaway Cay on the left hand column.  The next option will be deciding which type of adventure you want to book at each location.  My advice is to mix it up and enjoy some splashtacular excursions combined with some sightseeing or nature adventures.  As for onboard experiences, the Vista Spa and Palo are definitely worth indulging in for some much needed adult-only time for you and your husband.  May 29th will be here before you know it so start researching now, and let me know if you have any further questions. 

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Moms Panel!  Again, I'm here to help in any way I can.

    Happy Planning!
