Cruiser reviews and reports are one of the absolute best ways to evaluate and get acquainted with the Disney Cruise Line before you embark. With that in mind, we’ve collected several tips and memories from our own experiences. Enjoy!

“One of the first “guides” to Disney Cruise Line was a free online publication by Mickey Morgan, the “Magical Disney Cruise Guide.” This has morphed into an informative online cruise guide at AllEarsNet. Read it at http://www.allears.net/cruise/cruise.htm”.
“We love to ‘dream’ about and plan our next cruise right after booking. We hold countdown parties every 100 days. This last time we actually had 500+ days to count down but it went very quickly with the anticipation of our 100-day parties. We planned out each party with a character theme, food theme, and then an activity or craft item we’d use on the ship. Here’s an example: Our 300-day party was Chip and Dale, we ate peanut butter desserts and decorated magnetic memo boards for our stateroom doors to keep in touch. Other activities included making T-shirts for our group, decorating over-the-door shoe holders for our bathroom items (dollar store find), making magnetic fun foam door banners with a catchy phrase and ‘who we are’ (example: ‘There’s no traffic when you travel on the Magic’ - Diehls from Pennsylvania). We have also used the time to plan excursions, make packing lists, and just talk about the food we look forward to eating again! Our final party will be a Bon Voyage theme and we will wear our Caribbean attire or newly made T-shirts, eat a dessert buffet, and then make some special luggage tags so our luggage is easily noticed at pick-up! Have fun dreaming and the time will go by quickly!”
