Don’t miss ‘The Good Morning Show’ on Disney Cruise Line
When you sail on Disney Cruise Line ships, it may take a few cruises before you learn some of the fun things that happen on board.
For the most part, the DCL Navigator app contains everything you need to know about all the events taking place during your particular cruise. But, there is one thing that is not listed anywhere and in my opinion it is not to be missed – The good morning show.
Each morning of your cruise, if you tune to Channel 1 on your stateroom TV, you’ll find the Cruise Director and Entertainment Manager talking about the day’s events. Sometimes they talk about specific first-run movies that are showing in theaters or classes like “Anyone Can Cook” that are happening. If the ship is in port that day, they will remind you of the “all aboard” time.
Along with all the official business that might be discussed, there’s no shortage of super nerdy dad jokes. Often the jokes are related to Disney. Here is one we heard on our last cruise; Why can’t you give Elsa a ball? Because she’s going to give up. Hahaha…
The entire show is repeated until 12:00 every day, so if you listen to it in the middle, don’t worry; it will start again from the beginning right after it ends. More often than not, I let it play in the background while I get ready for my day.
By the way, I’ve heard quite a bit of speculation as to whether or not this show is filmed every morning or if it’s repeated cruise after cruise. Sometimes it looks like it might be a repeat on some days, but other times there’s more specific information that leads me to believe it’s filmed daily.
Another thing I want to mention is that on my last cruise the chat function was not working for the majority of the trip, although it seemed to be at first. I didn’t find out until near the end of the cruise when I finally visited guest services to inquire that they knew the live chat feature of the DCL app was not working. The app would let you choose to speak to a cast member in Dining, Port Adventures, or Guest Services, and show you as number one online, but nothing else would happen for hours. I was a bit surprised that The good morning show has not been used in any way to communicate this information to guests on board, as it is a nice feature when working properly.
Look at you The good morning show?
