When sailing on a Disney cruise, one of the planning milestones you will need to hurdle over is deciding if you are going to get off the ship when it stops at various ports.

I (Monica) think getting off the ship and seeing the areas you are visiting is always a great idea! Sometimes this may be the only opportunity you have to see the places you are visiting, and you should experience them to the fullest.

Port Adventures, which are shore excursions that have been specially selected by Disney Cruise Line, provide you and your family with the very best each destination has to offer. Choosing Port Adventures by Disney Cruise Line over third-party excursions has many benefits.

The biggest one is the convenience of letting Disney do the work for you. There is no planning or researching you need to do! You have the peace of mind knowing you are receiving the best options the destination has to offer.

Also, the ship will not leave without you if your Disney Cruise Line chosen Port Adventure is late in getting you back. If you do not choose a Port Adventure selected by Disney and you arrive back at the port after the ship is scheduled to leave, you will be stranded.

Each destination has several Port Adventures to choose from. The one(s) you choose will vary based on your interest and activity level. There are sight-seeing tours, swimming with marine life, hiking mountains, and more.

There are a handful of Port Adventures that are more popular than others. Here is a quick rundown:

Many times the most popular offerings will be booked up without likelihood of cancellations or openings. In addition, the higher tiered Castaway Club memberships are allowed to book their Port Adventures before the lower tiers and first-time sailers.

Therefore, it can be stressful trying to make sure you are booking on the correct date and learning how to use the website to book.
