    Nancy, love DMP! Is it better to buy Rainforest Spa passes ahead of cruise day or get them after boarding? Also, if my check-in time is later than my arrival time at the cruise terminal, can I begin check-in as soon as I arrive to the port?

    Ahoy Sandra and thanks for the compliment!
    We love spreading our pixie dust on your cruise vacation to make sure you have the most magical sailing! Spending time in the Rainforest Room is a wonderful way to unwind and rejuvenate during your vacation!  I have pre-purchased passes and bought them onboard in the spa and not had a problem either way.  I don't know your schedule, but I have found the best time to enjoy the thermal suite is either in the morning or when the ship is docked in a port of call.  Whatever you choose to do, I know you will love it too!
    You should be able to check in as soon as you arrive at Port Canaveral.  Once you are checked in, you will receive a boarding number that will indicate when you can board the vessel.  You shouldn't have to wait too long in the open and airy cruise terminal.  While you wait don't be surprised if one of your favorite Disney characters appears for photos and autographs by the model of the Disney Magic.  There is also a small, observation deck for your first up close look at the ship.  Time will fly by as you wait comfortably so don't worry!
    It was so good to hear from you so please don't hesitate to visit again if you think of anything else!
    Have a wonderful day!
