    Was wondering when we arrive on the Disney dream will the aquaduck and pools be open while sitting in port awaiting to disembark? Thanks in advance.

    Hi there, Stephen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Oh boy!!!  Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is a few days away!  Just a few more sleeps and then you will be celebrating on deck with Captain Mickey as you head to sea for an adventure you won’t forget!  Get your rest now because once you step foot onboard the fun doesn’t stop!

    Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  The AquaDuck and pools will be open once Guests start being welcomed onboard on embarkation day!  So, either wear your swimsuit or pack it in your carry-on bag so that you can take that first ride down the super fun, one of a kind water coaster!  My family always heads straight to Cabanas for lunch and then to the pools while we are waiting for our stateroom to be ready (which is usually around 1:30PM).  Then, after our staterooms are ready and our checked luggage magically appears outside our stateroom, we can get unpacked and settled in our stateroom before the mandatory safety drill.

    If you haven’t yet downloaded the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app before setting sail.  On it you will find a complete schedule of activities and entertainment as well as deck plans, menus and my favorite – a chat feature to keep up with one another while onboard!  You do not need an internet package to utilize it but will simply connect to the onboard DCL-GUEST WiFi network for use.

    Have the most magical and memorable adventure at sea!  Say hi to Captain Mickey for me!

    Happy Sailing!
