Nassau, Bahamas - Stayed on the ship to allow my granddaughter to enjoy the pool and other areas with less crowds. We have visitied Nassau many times on other cruises, so we weren't missing anything. Except the great shopping there!
Port Canaveral, Florida - Arrived ship by Disney Express straight from Orlando. Did not visit Port Canaveral. Next time..
Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island) - We did not do an excursion. The beach and roped off water area was too crowded for my liking. But my granddaughter enjoyed.
Disney Dream - Book your activities online the MINUTE check-in is available for you. Wake up early in the morning to do this. Everything books quick. I stressed about certain things not being available to us; however, as soon as we got on the ship I was able to secure most of our desired reservations. But again, do that AS SOON as you get on the ship. For me this included: Changing my dining time from late to early (late is just TOO late for little ones). Getting tickets for the Princess Gathering. And being added to the waitlist and ultimately being able to attend the Royal Court Royal Tea - which was a major highlight of our trip! (Pricey - but worth it! Do it!)
