    We are going on the Alaska Cruise. What time can we board the ship?

    Hi Mark!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! In my opinion, you are getting ready to set sail on one of the most unforgettable itineraries Disney Cruise Line has to offer! I've sailed to Alaska twice aboard the Disney Wonder and can't wait to plan another trip to "The Last Frontier"! Before you know it, you'll be in awe of the beautiful scenery surrounding the ship while it slowly sails through the fjords.

    Once your advance booking window opens, you can start scheduling your exciting Port Adventures and completing your Online Check-in. For first-time Guests, the advance booking window opens 75 days prior to setting sail. One of the steps during the Online Check-in is choosing a Port Arrival Time. You'll arrive at the Cruise Terminal during your designated Port Arrival Time and begin checking in at the terminal. You will receive a boarding number while checking in and once you hear your number called, you'll be stepping onto the ship! Boarding typically begins right before noon so depending on when your Port Arrival Time is, you might be able to just walk right onto the ship! If you have an earlier Port Arrival Time, you may need to wait just a little bit.

    Mark, I'm so excited for your upcoming Disney Cruise! I highly recommend checking out the incredible Port Adventures in Alaska offered by Disney Cruise Line! If you have any future questions, please visit us again!
