    I know that you can start booking port adventures at 12:01am but is that eastern standard time? I scheduled for the August 8, 2015 cruise on the Fantasy, this will be my first cruise. Does your credit card get charged when you book the port adventures?

    Welcome aboard, Antinette!

    The Western Caribbean voyage onboard the Disney Fantasy will be a wonderful introduction to cruising with Disney for you and your family. I'm so excited to be part of this adventure with you. You and your family are surely in for such a treat!

    As a first timer sailing on Disney Cruise Line, your booking window for port adventures and onboard activities opens up 75 days prior to your sail date. It will be around midnight eastern time zone that you can check out availability of activities. Once you make your reservations on the My Cruise Activities site, your credit card will not be charged yet. You'll actually see the port adventure charges towards the tail end of your cruise. Just in case you need to make any changes on reserved port adventures, there is no penalty if you edit/change or cancel at least 3 days prior to the sail date.

    Enjoy Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, Antinette! Your family will have so much fun... there's so many magical moments waiting to be made!
