Will we meet Disney Characters on our cruise?
Age-Specific Activities – Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! The moment you board your ship, opportunities abound to meet favorite Disney Characters and pose for photos or add new autographs to your book. You’ll see Characters around the ship, in stage shows and during kids’ activities in our youth clubs. And if one of your ports of call is Castaway Cay, you’ll have a chance to meet Disney Characters during an onshore Dance Party.
Special Onboard Character Greetings
On your cruise, you may just find yourself face-to-face with royalty at the Princess Gathering, where you’ll get to meet several of your favorite Characters all at one time. Some itineraries are also graced with the presence of Princess Anna and Queen Elsa from Frozen. Additionally, Character meet-and greets also occur on select sailings during the Disney Junior Character Breakfast and the Disney VIP Character Breakfast.
To provide a more relaxed experience during these special Character Greetings, complimentary tickets are required. You can reserve your tickets for select Character experiences online before you even board the ship.
