A Disney cruise is an exciting adventure for the family. The cruise offers numerous activities for kids of all ages and a few special celebrations in the evening before everyone turns in for the night. From the time you get on board the boat to the time you leave, you’re surrounded by Disney characters, fun, and games. There are a few things that should be at the top of your list of things to do while you’re on the cruise that will leave children believing in the magic of Disney.
Pools And The Aquaduck
There are a few pools on the cruise ship that are different sizes depending on whether you want to relax while drifting on a lazy river or swim laps around the pool. The Aquaduck is a long loop that goes along the length of the entire ship. It has a gentle stream of water inside and is completely covered so that you don’t fall while you’re sliding on your tube.
Boutique And Pirate’s Lounge
Girls can get a makeover by a princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and boys can get dressed like a pirate at the Pirate’s Lounge. These two areas are places where kids can go to turn their imagination into reality by putting on costumes and trying makeup that will make them look like their favorite princess or pirate. There are packages for each area that include special treats, clothing, and accessories that kids can take home after the cruise.
There are numerous clubs for kids of all ages to enjoy. Some are for toddlers and feature story time while other clubs are for teenagers and feature games and dancing. The clubs are ideal for older kids and teens who might not want to spend as much time with their parents or their younger siblings while they are on the cruise ship. Each club is staffed with several workers who will provide protection and structure while the kids are in each club. Teens have an area where they can go that adults aren’t allowed to enter, but there are fun staff members who make sure everyone is safe while enjoying their freedom for a short time.
Parties And Dinners
One of the things that kids will enjoy about a Disney cruise is eating with their favorite characters. There are nights set aside so that children can sit at a table with Disney characters and take pictures with them. There is fun music, a few games and lots of laughs as children see everyone from Mickey Mouse to Winnie the Pooh. The special dinners and parties that take place on the boat offer kid-friendly foods, dancing and other activities that everyone can enjoy. There are usually interactive shows as well after the meal. Souvenirs are usually given to the children so that they have something to remember their time on the cruise.
Fun With Friends
Enjoy the time that you have with your children on the cruise and the fun time that they can spend with the Disney characters on board. You’ll usually see someone different each day, such as a princess or two in the dining room or Mickey and Minnie lounging by the pool. Each room on the ship is decorated with fun details and accessories that depict the magic and breathtaking atmosphere that Disney offers. There is a schedule listed of when the characters will be out and about so that you don’t miss your favorite one. You can take pictures of the characters with your kids and talk to them for a few minutes before they go talk to other boys and girls on the cruise.
