We'll even tell you which theater shows to skip for more time at Senses Spa.
- Specific advice on the best itineraries for first-time cruisers, which deck to choose, best ports of call, and which Port Adventure shore excursions are worth your money.
- Complete coverage of Castaway Cay, Disney's private island, including reviews of every Port Adventure activity, what to pack for your day, food and bar reviews, and more.
- Packing tips, passport and ID requirements, advice for families with special needs or dietary restrictions, guides to tipping and gratuities, transportation and parking tips for each port, where to spend the night before your cruise, the check-in and boarding process, the daily Personal Navigator hand-out, and how to prepare for coming home.

Disney Cruise Line has demand-based pricing, which means fares fluctuate from the time they are announced until the ship actually sets sail. We can tell you whether the itinerary you want is a "Book It Now" or a "Wait A Bit."
We talk you through the booking process all the way to boarding, cruising, and returning home through Customs. This is the place to find out how to plan your first day onboard and how to properly pack on your last night.
