    Hi! We are cruising on the Disney Dream on May 14, 2018. Do Port Adventures get charged to our onboard account after we complete them? And then our card on file is charged once the cruise is over? Thank you!

    Hi there, Kristin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am sure you are eagerly awaiting your upcoming vacation aboard the beautiful Disney Dream!  You will have a wonderful experience and I am just so excited for you and your family!  I have yet to check out the new live 'Beauty and the Beast' Broadway-style show, but hear it is just fantastic!

    When you complete your Online Check-In you will provide Disney Cruise Line with a credit card to attach to your Key to the World card.  That credit card will be used for any onboard purchases, excursions, or extras such as spa services or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers.  Any Port Adventures that you choose to do will not be charged until after they are completed.  Periodically throughout your trip the credit card may be charged (basically to ensure the funds are there), but nothing will be charged until the activity has been completed.  It’s always a good idea to alert your bank and credit card company that you will be traveling so they don’t suspect fraudulent charges on your account.  Alternatively, if you do choose to settle your onboard account with cash, you may do so at Guest Services anytime throughout your sailing.  

    I am sure you have planned some wonderful excursions and Port Adventures for your vacation!  The Port Adventures team seamlessly plans and organizes onshore activities ensuring that you have the best time!

    As your planning continues, please come back with any other questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
