    I checked in for my cruise next month. Got my PAT. It says pending review. How long does it usually take til everything is confirmed?

    Ahoy there, Francine! Welcome aboard!

    We are sailing at almost the same time, and I am obsessively checking Disney Cruise Line to see if I passed the pending review stage. I haven't. But we'll get there.

    It can take up to a few days before sailing for your status to change. They are checking in a lot of people and reviewing documents, making sure we haven't used filters on our selfies - a lot goes into moving us to the next phase. 

    What you can do is log back into your reservation, and go to your online check-in section. Check to make sure you've spelled everything correctly and that the information you entered matches what is on your documentation. Verify everything you can, and then, like Elsa, let it go. If anything is in need of attention, Disney will notify you, so unless that happens, Hakuna Matata. 

    If you are feeling overwhelmed by it, you can always reach out to Disney Cruise Line via telephone or email to verify that they have all the information they need, but I'd give it at least until the week before your sailing. It really may take that long. 

    In the meantime, make sure you're staying up to date with the Know Before You Go information. It will help you get everything you need to be shipshape and ready to sail!
