    Hi, we booked a back to back last minute, about a week and a half ago. I don't think we are getting the booklet and the port luggage tags because we haven't received them yet. Will porters have tags there?

    Hi Hazel,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What fun you will have on your back to back cruises!  My family did our first back to back last summer and it was so much fun; we were really able to make our trip relaxing since we knew if we missed something the first week we could make it the following week!  

    Typically Guests will receive cruise booklets and luggage tags between 30-45 days prior to your sailing.  Disney Cruise Line tries to get documents out to Guests even if they do a last minute booking, but there is a slight chance you won’t receive it prior to your departure. In that case, the porters will most definitely have luggage tags for you to affix to your luggage.  You will need to have a print out of your online check-in paperwork handy so that you can provide it at the port for embarkation as well as your stateroom number accessible to fill in on the luggage tags the porters provide.  While at your discretion, it is nice to tip the porters - after all, they are the ones that make certain your luggage makes it on the ship!

    Your trip is fast approaching, but you still have time to reserve any excursions through Port Adventures and make any other bookings for your sailing such as an adults-only dinner or brunch reservation or appointments at Senses Spa and Salon.  You can also check for availability once you get onboard if you are unable to secure something before embarkation!  

    Have the most wonderful vacation and take advantage of the opportunity to sit back, relax and take it easy since you know you’ll be back for more! Perhaps have dinner by the pool one night instead of in the main dining room!  

    Happy Sailing!
