    Land and sea11/28-12/8/14. Can you check in on line for the cruise? I know I can check in online for the land portion. Taking disney transportation to port.

    Welcome back, Kristin! Disney Cruise Line makes it really easy to plan and check in for your sailing, just as you can plan and check in online ahead of time for your Walt Disney World Resort reservation.

    If you are a first time guest with Disney Cruise Line, your online check-in will open 75 days prior to your sail date. I highly recommend you browse the Disney Cruise Line website prior to that to decide which Port Adventures, Adult Exclusive Dining, or Spa Treatments you might like to book. Some Port Adventures and Adult Dining tend to book up quickly, so you'll want to have an idea of what you'd like to reserve before your online check-in begins. Guests who have sailed with Disney Cruise Line before can begin their check-in online 90 or more days in advance.

    During online check-in, simply fill in all the required information and print out your boarding documents that you'll need to sign and bring with you to the port. During online check-in, you'll also be asked to choose a Port Arrival Time. Since you'll be taking Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers from your Walt Disney World Resort, you'll not get your pick up information from the ground transfers until the night before you sail, so the Port Arrival Time won't really be up to you. Simply choose one, assuming you'll probably arrive around 12:30 or 1:00. No worries if that's not when the motorcoach gets you there exactly. They'll know you're coming and they'll be ready for you! As you arrive at port, you'll check in at the desk and be issued a boarding number. Most likely, many of the guests will have already boarded at that point, since many guests arrive right as the port opens. That means less crowds for you, and hopefully the ability to walk onto the ship, or not have to wait long at all until your number is called. 

    You're in for the trip of a lifetime, Kristin! Stop back and visit again if you have any other questions! I'm always glad to help out another Ohioan! Happy planning!
