    When checking in on-line, what time zone does Disney use?

    Welcome aboard, Tiffany!

    Sounds like you are getting ready to plan for your cruise activities, as well as your travel plans to get you to the embarkation port to board your Disney Cruise ship. 

    There are a few Disney Cruise ship departure ports and local time zones are followed accordingly. So, if you are traveling from Port Canaveral or Miami, then all your cruise documents will refer to the US Eastern Time Zone (EST). If you happen to be going on an Alaskan voyage or sailing from California, then you will be following the Pacific Standard Time (PST). All the European sailings will also follow the same timezone that your cruise will be sailing out of (or arriving into).

    I hope this helps, Tiffany. If you have any additional questions that we can help with, please do come back. We're always happy to help you with your cruise planning questions. 

    Happy planning!
