    Ahoy! My 30-day online check-in is fast approaching; can you please clarify when I am able to do this? I want to check-in right away. Is it midnight EST on the 30th day (going into the 29th day) or midnight on the 31st day (going into the 30th day? Thanks!

    Ahoy again Amy!

    It is so exciting that your 30-day online check-in is fast approaching. You are entering into the final countdown as you prepare to set sail. Your cruise with Captain Mickey is just around the corner! 

    I can relate to wanting to check-in as soon as possible. I want to get the cruise party started! Online check-in is available when the clock strikes midnight EST on the 30th day prior to sailing. That means that if you are staying up late on the 31st day prior to your cruise setting sail, you would be able to check-in right at midnight before retiring to bed for the evening. 

    The magic begins at midnight EST and this is one time your Fairy Godmother would give you the go ahead to stay up late, if you wish. To prepare for your check-in, make sure to have passports at the ready for each member of your sailing party. You may take photos of these in advance and have them ready to upload.  Currently, Disney Cruise Line is also requiring that you take security photos of each Guest in your crew as well. I recommend taking these in advance of your check-in time with good lighting and a neutral background. Once you have them ready to upload, you just need to wait for the clock to strike 12. 

    I highly recommend that you check the Experience Updates page prior to your check-in date so that you can be kept informed as protocols are subject to change. 

    Amy, have a wonderful voyage and sail back on over to planDisney any time!
