    my family sails in Aug 2022 and i would like to "pre-load" our onboard accounts prior to sailing. Is there a way to do this online?

    Hello there, Lesley! I'm so excited about your upcoming plans to set sail this August with the Disney Cruise Line. It's going to be one amazing adventure! 

    I like purchasing Disney Gift Cards as I prepare for my Disney Cruises so that I can use them to settle my onboard account once I'm on vacation. Most of the wonderful activities and dining you'll be enjoying are included in your cruise fare, but we always visit Palo, buy some souvenirs, and have a few other purchases here and there throughout our voyage. If you decide to buy Disney Gift Cards in advance to pay for your extra charges, visit the Guest Services desk on board early on in your cruise to load your Gift Cards to your account.

    Alternatively, you can visit the Onboard Gifts and Amenities page of the Disney Cruise Line website to gift yourself with some onboard credit ahead of your cruise.  From the dropdown menu on the home page, click "Shop by Category" and then look to the far right of the page for the "Onboard Credit" option. This onboard credit can be used for anything you charge to your onboard account such as gratuities, Port Adventures, spa treatments, beverages, items purchased in the shops on board, and more. 

    With your onboard credit or Disney Gift Cards purchased in advance, there isn't much to do except for sit back, relax, and enjoy your amazing vacation! It will be here before you know it. Here's a handy packing list to review as you prepare to set sail. 

    Please cruise back to us if you have any further questions. My pals and I are always happy to help. 

    Bon Voyage,
