    We will be on board the Dream the day our check in window opens for a future sailing. Can I check in anywhere on board?

    Hi Teresa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to “sea” that you have not one, but two Disney Cruise Line vacations planned!!  In my opinion, that is never a bad problem to have and in fact I make sure that my family always has a Disney Cruise Line vacation booked so we always have something to look forward to!  With so many destinations and itineraries to choose from, it’s fun to see new and unique places – or go back to your favorites!  But no matter how many times you set sail with Captain Mickey, there is always something new to explore onboard, as I am sure you are well aware!

    I totally understand your predicament about wanting to complete your Online Check-In and onboard booking when 105 days (Gold Member status) until your voyage hits!  There are not common business lounges onboard, but you should be able to access the Disney Cruise Line website while onboard via a personal laptop or smartphone without having to purchase an Internet package.  I have found, though, that often the service to reach the website is a little spotty or slower than I would like, so you may want to go ahead and purchase a Connect@Sea package to ensure you don’t have trouble accessing your reservation.  While always subject to change without notice, currently you can purchase a small package of 100MB of data for $19 or you can pay as you go for $0.25/MB.  Also remember that you can book onboard activities without completing your Online Check-In. So if you are mainly interested in booking onboard fun, go ahead and do that and then complete your check-in once back on land!

    Too many Disney Cruise Line vacations on the calendar is never a bad problem to have and before you know it you will be at Platinum Castaway Club status!

    Wishing you an adventure filled with magic and memories!

    Happy Sailing!
