    Hello, First time Disney cruiser! We are able to start booking our activities tomorrow. I am wondering what time the booking opens? Midnight? Sometime later in the morning? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi there, Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!!  OOOH!! I am so exited for you and your FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation!  It will be here before you know it and I can guarantee you that it won’t disappoint!  Get ready for fun in the sun with Captain Mickey!

    I know you have anxiously been awaiting your opportunity to complete your Online Check-In and Booking window and the time is almost here!!  At the stroke of midnight (EST) you will be able to log into your My Disney Activities account (be sure you have this set up beforehand!) and start booking your onboard and port activities!  My suggestion to you would be to book the activities first that you want to do and then complete your Online Check-In!  It is not necessary to complete the check-in prior to booking activities, so go ahead and get that done first!  Then you can complete the check-in process.  Be sure to have any travel information and identification information handy when checking in because you will need that to complete it. 

    Don’t be discouraged if something you are hoping to reserve is unavailable when you go to make the reservation.  If it shows unavailable, I recommend checking back as other Guests’ plans may change and if they drop an activity it will be immediately available for someone else to reserve.  Additionally, you can always check once onboard for availability, but I do recommend booking as much in advance as possible.

    Hopefully this helps you prepare for the Online Check-In and oBoking process!  If you have any additional questions as your planning continues, please come back!

    Happy Sailing!
