Yes. There is a little lot of all-terrain wheelchairs, wagons, and all-terrain strollers available at the first tram stop. It's up the walkway a bit on the left.

DH would head out there first thing in the AM to check out the weather or the port activity on port days. We were in an inside stateroom so I was a nice little wake up and didnt require full cleanup before heading to an observation deck. Enjoy!!!!!

Does anyone know if they limit you on how many items you drop off to sign? I was considering bringing in squares, instead of a pillowcase, so I can make a quilt.

When I have asked at guest services on the Magic, it was one per person in the stateroom. You drop your items off in a bag with a baggy of the pens you want the characters to use. Make sure the bag/items are marked with your stateroom number.

Bubba Kegs keep beverages hot or cold, come in several sizes and colors and are great conversation starters. lol I am a proud Bubba Keg carrier!!!! You can purchase your own Bubba Keg at Target and similar stores.
man - what a great idea to pack stuff in your tumblers. sounds silly, but the thought never occured to me!

Yeah, and it becomes a great way to pack breakables for the ride home. Roll in clean laundry and stuff it in...insulated from bumps....

Where do people get the pictures for their stateroom doors? My printer doesn't work well so the internet isn't going to work well for me.

I'm trying to read through this entire thread, but it's taking a while and I'm taking notes as I go.

Someone mentioned signing up for the least favorite restaurant for the first night so that you wouldn't have to do that one twice.

We are going on the Dream in February and it has Animator's Palate, Cabanas, Enchanted Garden, and Royal Palace. The other's are adult only. We'll be traveling with our boys, 12 and 10. Having never cruised before, is there a certain one that would be best for our family? Do characters show up? Specifically Peter Pan and Pluto? I would love Dopey!

When do we choose the restaurant we want to eat at first? On board?

Thanks in advance!

Mary

You will be assigned a dining rotation and it will appear on your KTTW card along with your table number. Last week ours was Animator's Palette, Enchanted Garden, Royal Palace (Pirate Menu), Royal Palace. We skipped Enchanted Garden and dined at Palo. We ate breakfast and lunch at Cabanas. You will have breakfast on debarkation morning in the restaurant you dined in the night before.

It hangs from the fish next to your cabin door. People leave you gifts from your FE group usually organized on the Cruise Meet Thread for your cruise.

Great tips everyone! I've got lots of ideas/things to watch for on our Aug Alaskan cruise!

On our first Disney cruise a couple of years ago, our youngest was 10months and she would wake up very early (4:30 am early) and I'd take her out for walks so DW and DD#1 could sleep. I loved it, actually. I'd grab a coffee (or six) and we'd watch the sun rise. Very relaxing and it felt like we had the Magic to ourselves!

I also greatly enjoyed sitting outside behind Topsider (used the stairs from Deck 10 to access it since Topsiders wasn't open) and listening to the CMs come to work. I got a great chuckle listening to "Hi Ho, Hi Ho" playing ... I imagine it would get a bit old for the CMs after 4 months, but I really enjoyed it and it added that extra magical touch that only I and my youngest DD experienced. We also got to see the Wonder cruise by early in the morning, saw it one afternoon, and saw it again as it did a special photo-shoot "cruise-by" when we were docked at CC. I was surprised to learn that it was VERY rare for the two ships to meet and I'd had the luck to see it happen 3 times in one cruise!

Thanks for this tip - though I did a search and I think the username is actually "gradysmommy". I figured I'd post what I found in case there are others looking for the eBay seller!
