    Are there waitlist available for on board activities? Is so how do you sign up?

    Ahoy there, Esi-Kilanga! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sailing by with your question! It looks like you and your crew are just over a month away from embarking on your Disney Cruise Line vacation! I know it's starting to feel real, isn't it?! 

    Speaking of real, I know it can be real difficult to reserve spots in absolutely everything that you'd like to do while aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships - especially now while the Health and Wellness Guidelines are keeping capacity low during indoor activities. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on everything! I have great news: some of the activities listed under "Onboard Fun" do in fact have wait lists!

    Now, without knowing exactly which activities you're interested in, I can't be sure that everything you'd like to attend will become available. However, in most cases, you can join a list for activities like Beverage Tastings and adult-exclusive dining at Palo on embarkation day by stopping by their scheduled locations and asking the crew members there! If you have any little castaways sailing with you and are looking to make additional reservations for Disney's Oceaneer Club or Oceaneer Lab, you can ask about availability with the Youth Activities crew members as well! 

    As part of the current enhanced health and safety protocol, I'd also suggest checking the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for more information about activities that are available for reservation once onboard, too. Speaking of the app, I always like to use it the week before embarkation to check for any openings - as your fellow castaways finalize plans of their own, I've often seen availability open up! It's almost like magic or something, haha! 

     Well, Esi-Kilanga, I hope that helps you set a course for some added fun as you finish planning for this April! I'm sure you and your crew will have an amazing time no matter which activities open up or not - with everything included on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, you could fill your entire itinerary! Thank you so much for your question, and if you come across any others while you continue planning, please drop us a line here at planDisney! 

    Until then, keep a weather eye on the horizon!
