    Ahoy! Question regarding embarkation period for Alaska. I am a Platinum Castaway Club member and online check-in does not show how early we can arrive at the port. Do you know how early we can arrive, check-in and board the ship? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Vanessa!

    It's so WONDERful welcoming you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh my goodness, your Alaskan adventure is right around the corner! Congratulations on becoming a Platinum Castaway Club Member! It sounds like you and your pirate crew love to cruise with Captain Mickey at the helm every chance you get!

    There are so many benefits to being a Disney Cruise Line Platinum Castaway Club Member. One of my favorite advantages is being able to arrive at the Cruise Terminal first thing! Concierge-level Guests and Platinum Castaway Club Members do not receive a designated Port Arrival Time during the Online Check-in process. For your upcoming voyage to Alaska, you may arrive right when the Canada Place Cruise Terminal opens at 11:00 AM. Then, you will be able to begin checking in for your cruise by heading to the check-in area designated for Concierge-level and Platinum Castaway Club Guests.

    Once you've checked in, you can sit back and relax inside the Cruise Terminal while you wait for your adventure to begin! Boarding typically beings around noon. (Please note, boarding times are always subject to change.) Once the ship is ready to welcome families onboard, you and your family will be among the first to step aboard because Concierge-level Guests and Platinum Castaway Club Members receive priority boarding!

    Vanessa, I can't wait for your upcoming Disney Cruise! You will be in awe of the beauty and splendor of Alaska every nautical mile of your journey.
