    Elizabeth from VA Asked

    Hi there! My fiance and I will be officially blending our family of 5 into one aboard the Disney Magic in November. Can you recommend fun ways to include our kiddos in the celebration? They will be 9, 10, and 11 when we sail. Thanks so much!

    Congratulations, Elizabeth!

    What a fabulous family celebration you and your fiancee will be enjoying with your children. Your crew will surely have an awesome time on the Disney Cruise. It's definitely one of the best family venues for a celebration where you can enjoy activities as a family, and also have time for each other.

    At this age, the kids will have an opportunity to really enjoy some family time that you can spend all over the ship. I'm sure everyone will enjoy riding the thrilling Aquadunk and spending quality time by the Disney Magic's wonderful pool area - your family can even watch a movie together while basking under the sun. There are also family themed events going on during the day at the lounges. It transforms into Adult spaces in the evenings, so make sure you check on the different activities going on each day. Your Personal Navigator, which is delivered to you nightly, will have a list of activities and events for families to enjoy. There are games, karaoke, and other fun organized activities for an afternoon of family fun. Remember to plan your pirate gear for your buccaneers -- Pirate Night will be a blast and I'm sure you'll have awesome new family pictures worthy of framing. 

    There are Port Adventures geared towards family fun too -- this is a great start to explore and adventure as a family. And Disney can set the stage for you. Have you thought of ordering some fun, customized shirts for your whole family to wear? You'll surely stand out and define yourselves as a single family unit :-).

    It is guaranteed that your whole family will have a great time. Who knows, you might be setting yourselves up for an annual family adventure on the Disney Cruise starting with this first trip :-). And with that,  major brownie points to you and your fiancee... you've just won over all the kids.

    Have a wonderful time on your family bonding voyage, Elizabeth!
