Get on the ship as early as possible for the lunch buffet, then tour the ship to see the incredible kids, teens, and adult areas. It's the best time for the whole party to see everything. Do not miss the shows!
-Room service coffee is the best included coffee on the ship.
-Download the Disney Cruise Line app on your phone or iPod, which is fantastic. It tells you all about the day's activities, menus, etc., and you will use it to text one another throughout the ship to stay in touch, even with your kids.
you have to insert your Key to the World (KTTW) card into the slot / holder at the entryway of the of cabin to activate the lights and power. An easy hack for this is to use an old hotel room key or old gift card for this purpose and leave it there for the length of your cruise.
Be sure and go on top deck to watch the sun set at least once. Beautiful! Be sure and ask cast member ahead of time which side of deck 12 you should be on for the fireworks. Aqua Duck can block view if on wrong side.
We booked a Concierge One-Bedroom suite and it was absolutely worth the extra money. Wonderful service, a place to meet other guests, internet onboard the ship, free drinks and snacks throughout the day. I can't say enough good things about the Concierge service! Book it!
If you're an adult and want adult only pool, sunbathing. Go to deck 13 front. Beautiful, quiet, bar server bringing drinks and I think many people don't discover it bc the elevators only go to floor 11 and then you have to get off and take another elevator. So nice! Not crowded.
