Disney is renowned for its attention to detail, and the Disney Cruise Line is no exception. There are any number of smaller, overlooked attractions and activities that may interest you. Here’s a list of our favorites:

Pin Trading—This popular activity started at the parks and migrated to the cruises! You can buy all sorts of enamel, cloisonné-style pins on the cruise to trade with others. Or bring pins from the parks or from home. Crew members wearing pin trading lanyards must accept any Disney pin in trade (look for the Disney name on the back of the pin). Check your Personal Navigator for trading sessions.

Vista Gallery—All ships have a small art gallery, operated by Disney and offering high-end Disney art and collectibles for sale. Thomas Kinkade works may also be on display, and Silent Auctions may also be offered. For a time, the cruise line hosted Art Auctions at Sea, conducted by outside art galleries, but those have been discontinued. On the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, and Disney Dream the gallery is on deck 4 midship. The Disney Fantasy's gallery moved to deck 2 near Enchanted Garden in May 2017.

Off-The-Beaten-Path—A thorough exploration of the ships reveals fascinating little nooks and crannies. Explore hallways, elevator lobbies, and staircases for art. Magic Class: Check out deck 6 behind the midship elevators—you can walk through for a closer look at the mural. Dream Class: The Midship Detective Agency scavenger hunt games, while seemingly “kids' stuff,” are a challenge for adults, and take you on a tour of many public areas of the ship (see page 199). The Muppets-themed hunt will bring you to a Muppet-sized stateroom door!

Captain’s Photo Sessions and Signings—It’s always good to meet the Captain! If you’re willing to wait in line, you can usually get a handshake and a photo with the Captain. And let’s not forget that the Captain’s signature is a great souvenir! The Captain typically appears at one of the shops on deck 4/3. Check your Personal Navigator for times and places.
