Creating a “magical” and “wonderful” cruise takes a dash of planning, a pinch of knowledge, and a bit of pixie dust! Here are some more tips:

“Shopping onboard the Disney Cruise Line ships can be a daunting task. Between all of the different items to choose from and the crowds coveting the same thing you have had your eye on, shopping can make one’s head spin! A few tips to make shopping at the onboard shops a bit more fun! First, if you see something you absolutely must have, purchase it early on in your cruise. Oftentimes items are not replenished until the ship returns to its home port. If it is a popular item, you may be out of luck heading to the ship’s shops the last evening of your cruise. On the other hand, if you are unsure you really need that extra notepaper cube, give yourself some time to think about it. Browsing the shops onboard a bit further may uncover an even bigger treasure. In addition, Castaway Cay has plenty of cute items, often dedicated to the island only! Lastly, consider visiting the onboard shops at an “off-time.” Heading to Mickey’s Mates right after the evening show in the Walt Disney Theatre has let out can mean wall-to-wall people inside the shops. Visiting the shops during a down-time allows you to meander at your own pace ... and gives you more elbow room to work with! Happy Shopping! ”

“While flying home from our first Disney Cruise, I made a corrected packing list for our next cruise which we had booked onboard. This was the perfect time to consider what could be left behind next time, and what I wanted to be certain to bring. Now my list is filed in my PassPorter binder, ready for next year!”

Magical Memory

“The use of facial recognition software on the Disney Dream really tickles the techie in me. When you board, the ship’s photographer takes your portrait and swipes your Key to the World card. From then on, the computer remembers your faces and stateroom number, and finds your face in any photo taken by the ship’s photographers. Touch your key card to a photo kiosk’s card reader, and your photos are automatically displayed. Photos that have been printed (not all are), are gathered together for you in a folio (again, a touch of your key card to the card reader to learn where your folio is on the shelves). And you can view them on your stateroom TV! If you’ve ever spent hours searching through the photos displayed on the photo shop’s walls, you’ll appreciate just how magical an improvement this is! ”
