#1 Room Service Hidden Gems:
Aboard Disney Cruise Line you can order from the Room Service menu 24/7 for free. Did you know that there are some items NOT on the menu that you can order as well? For example, Mickey ice cream bars or the “cake of the day” are fun treats to enjoy. Want a great bedtime treat for the kids at the end of the day? Ask for warm chocolate chip cookies with some milk…………yum!
#2 Freebie Hidden Gem:
Sports Deck Simulators on board the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy are lots of fun. Typically you have to pay to do these and you make a reservation ahead of time or once on board. Did you know that the first afternoon on the ship, these are FREE to try!? Yes! Once you have enjoyed your lunch at Cabanas and had your first ride on the Aqua Duck, head up to the sports deck to try the Sports Deck Simulators for FREE!
#3 Adults Only Tip:
When you are at Castaway Cay, did you know that they have an ADULTS ONLY part of the island called Serenity Bay? Yes, I encourage you to take advantage of the child care on the island, even if for just a little while to head on the tram to Serenity Bay. Not only will you enjoy the peace, quiet and serenity but they serve STEAK from Palo here and the buffet (which is free) is amazing!
#4 Kids Club Tips:
Check the times guides for open houses at the kids club/teen spaces once on board. For the Edge (ages 11-14) and the Vibe (ages 14-17), the only opportunity parents get to check these spaces out is during open house times. For Oceanears lab and club (ages 3-12) this is the only opportunity you can go in and take photographs of this amazing space, so have your cameras ready!
#5 Reservation Tips:
Did you not the Palo Brunch reservation you wanted, the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique/Pirates League reservation or a meet n’ greet with the Princesses ahead of time? Don’t sweat it! When you first get on board, all of these are typically available to you. For the Boutique/Pirates League you will call or go to the boutique to reserve. For Palo, you will call or go to the podium. For meet n’ greets you will go to Port Adventures Desk. I have ALWAYS been able to secure a last minute Palo dinner, meet n’ greet or Boutique reservation once on board, just do it that first day!
#6 Freebie Gem:
The specialty coffee locations like Cove Cafe and Vista Cafe on board put out deserts and other items throughout the day/evening in the cases. It appears you have to pay for these but you do not, they are free, so enjoy! If you are a specialty coffee drinker, when you purchase your first drink at the Vista Cafe on board the Fantasy or Dream, ask for the loyalty punch card, when you buy 5 drinks, the 6th one is free!
#7 Pirate Night Tip:
On Pirate night, they will have a buffet immediately following the
fireworks at Cabanas. Get there early because they serve a limited amount of the infamous Disney turkey legs on the buffet. Enjoy!
