Thank you!

Thank you for the great tips! Does anyone know if the Fantasy does tea with Alice?

From what I have heard, and as a past guest on the Fantasy, they did NOT offer Princess Tea/Tea with Alice. It is available on the classic ships.

Question about life jackets/ swim aids

Hi! We will be taking our first cruise with Disney on the Magic in April.
My little guys (2 and 4) love the water, but are not able to swim without either flotation devices or life jackets. What is the cruise line's policy regarding this? Can we bring their life jackets/ puddle jumpers from home for the pools? Do they have any for use or rent?

Thanks for the advice!

We brought water wings for my daughter on our first cruise. No one stopped her from going in. I think they sold them there as well. No life jackets available (except for in your stateroom). You MAY be able to use those!

Uhhhh NO, you cannot use the emergency equipment from your cabin to play in the pool. The Mickey pool (for toilet trained little kids) is about 18 inches deep. Per DCL, floatation devices are not permitted.

Sorry, I have been corrected. That is why I said may.......

They didn't stop my daughter from wearing her water wings though.....

This info is listed for each pool on Disneycruise.com. Puddle jumpers are Coast Guard Certified. Ours are already packed.

Coast Guard personal flotation devices (PFDs), water wings and flotation sewn into bathing suits can be brought onboard and are permitted in Donald's Pool. However, floats, rafts and fun noodles cannot be brought onboard and are not permitted in the pools.

I had these made for my girls to have autographed by all the characters. I plan on dropping them off at guest services and surprising them with them on the last day of our cruise!

That's a great tip!
