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!
Do Royal Court for a nice quiet breakfast....same food as buffet, but fresher
ASK a lot of question because its a lot of info and overwhelming all the restaurant dates and schedules. so be informed before arrival date. and be prepared to be without internet connection unless you want to pay a lot for it
Walk thru the entire ship on day 1 and get a sense as to all that is available. It's terrific.
The room had two USB plugs built into the wall, plus one in the alarm clock.
-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.
book character events such as character breakfast and Princess meet and greets as soon as you can
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.
I thought the cups that Disney provided at drink stations were large enough and it was not necessary to bring our travel mugs. We barely used them.
Go to the shows. They are awesome.
The characters will just be walking around. We snagged pics with Goofy just walking around and Peter Pan was hopping down the stairs chatting with my son. It's like they are cruising with you!
Be sure to always have your camera with you.
You can decorate the doors and also write notes to other cabins

Make sure that you use the navigator on board that you get every morning under your door and bring a highlighter to highlight the things you would like to do
A few tips...do not miss the shows, stay up late and you can catch first run movies (like Avengers in 3-D), take plenty of sunscreen and deck shoes as the deck is hot!
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.
Plan on and extended time to debark. Get away and go to the adult pool to relax and enjoy the hot tub.
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!
