    Hi! We just booked our first Disney Cruise! We are sailing November 2017 to the Bahamas and we have a stop at Port Canaveral with a one day park hopper. Does anyone know how this works? Fast passes, dining reservations, etc for our day at Disney?Thx!

    Ahoy Sarah –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and CONGRATULATIONS on booking your first DISNEY CRUISE!!! I am thrilled for you, especially because I booked that same cruise out of New York next November – you know, great minds think alike (wink-wink). This cruise is so awesome because not only do we have the opportunity to tour New York (which my little Texans have never seen) but we get to go to Disney World too and all while relaxing on a luxurious Disney cruise! I can tell you a little bit about how this is working for 2016, but know that for next year, things may be a little different. For this year, guests will get an unlocked Fast Pass + that is preloaded with 3 unlimited ride options. That means you will not need to plan ahead for your first 3 rides, simply scan your card (or magic band if you have one) and then ride.  After you have used your 3 Fast Passes, you are free to get additional Fast Passes just like everyone else. Like other excursions, meals were not provided last year so many guests took advantage of the Quick Service Restaurants that do not require reservations and more cost effective. Again – I am not sure what the plans will be for your cruise next year so check back when it is closer to your sail date. Sarah, I hope you have fun planning ahead for your cruise on the Magic and thank you for visiting with us here!
