Birnbaum's Disney guides take to the high seas with this comprehensive look at the Disney Cruise Line and all the events, activities, and ports of call to sample aboard the Wonder and the Magic. In "Before You Sail," receive advice on what to do and pack prior to your journey. Then get a deck-by-deck, cabin-by-cabin introduction to your vacation "home," as well as personal dining tips, from midday snacks to gourmet dinners. Find out the characters' favorite hangouts, and, for adults only-find out some of our little-known hideaways.

The guide also includes a chapter on Ports of Call to help you decide which tours and shore excursions to take, plus a fun-filled guide to activities for kids of all ages-tots and teens and in-betweens. Additionally, we'll show you where to massage your cares away, the best places to be after dark, how to celebrate in style whether you're just married or renewing your vows, marking a special birthday or anniversary, or just rejoicing, and the secrets to planning a successful family reunion.

This year's edition includes insights into the newest shore excursions available to guests aboard the Disney Magic and Wonder, first hand accounts of new dining and entertainment opportunities onboard the Disney ships, and updates on the extensive kids-only activities and programming provided by Disney Cruise Line. And now that Disney Cruise Line plans to add two new ships to its fleet, we'll provide a sneak peek into the not-too-distant future.
