Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Do you have to book special character dining packages?
- - Asked by Kenanne from Saskatchewan on 1/22/2014
- Welcome aboard, Kenanne! You must be considering a magical cruise with Disney! I can tell you from lots of experience on all four of the Disney ships that your family is in for a very memorable vacation!
Currently, Disney Cruise Line offers character breakfasts on most cruises of seven nights or longer on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. These fun meals are included in the price of your cruise, so no need to budget anything extra to enjoy these experiences! Isn't that wonderful? There is so much value in a Disney Cruise! On other sailings, there aren't character meals, but your family will rotate through all three of the main dining restaurants on the ship throughout your cruise enjoying the Disney themes and delicious meals in each spot.
There is a new special Royal Tea in the Royal Court on the Disney Fantasy which does carry an additional cost and has limited reservation availability to be made onboard only. It's a great experience where little princes and princesses are treated to quite a special afternoon with their favorite Disney princesses for stories, games and tea time!
But, no matter on which ship you sail, there are plenty of opportunities day and night for character meetings with your favorite Disney friends! My family loves getting pictures with Disney friends onboard the ships, as the lines are much shorter than at the Walt Disney World Resort, so we can get photos and autographs of many of the characters throughout our cruise! Plus, the accidental encounters with characters in the halls of the ship are our favorite! You never know when you'll be walking around the atrium late at night and Goofy might be walking your way in his pajamas, or Cinderella is on her way to meet with her friends. There are so many special moments with characters onboard, Kenanne!
I hope those details help as you continue planning, Kenanne! Please feel free to stop back again with any other questions you might have! I'm happy to help!
