    My kiddo and I will be taking our FIRST cruise ever with Disney in December - Very Merrytime. My online check-in is October 2017. Am I able to add anything if my balance is paid in full before the check-in date (spa services, excursions, ect.)??

    Ahoy, Kimberlyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited you've booked your inaugural cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line! This will be such an incredible voyage, too. Your 4-Night Very Merrytime Bahamian Cruise on the Disney Magic is going to be such a festive way to celebrate the season with your buccaneer.

    You've asked a really great question. Even if your balance is paid in full ahead of time, you'll only be able to book onboard activities, spa services and Port Adventures during Online Check-in once your advance booking window opens. For first-time cruisers, that date is 75 days prior to setting sail; it sounds like you're super on top of when that date is! I recommend taking the time before your advance booking window opens to write down a list of must-do Port Adventures and activities. Knowing what you'd like to book ahead of time will make your time online scheduling everything a breeze!

    Kimberlyn, I can feel your excitement about your upcoming cruise through your question! If you have any other questions while you're beginning to plan all the fun for your inaugural voyage with Captain Mickey, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
