    How can our party get an earlier arrival time?

    Ahoy, Beth! Welcome to planDisney.

    Your Disney Cruise Line adventure is right around the corner! I’m happy to help you finalize your travel plans. Port Arrival Times are staggered to help streamline the check-in process. You can look for an earlier time on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app or the Disney Cruise Line website. Log in to your reservation, find the My Online Check-In information, and proceed to the Port Arrival section, just like you did when you first selected your arrival time. If there is a better time for you, choose that time and save it. 

    You’ll need your Port Arrival Form to enter the terminal, so print or save a copy to your phone. Once inside, everyone’s citizenship documents will be scanned; you’ll pass through security and enter the seating area to wait for your boarding group number to be called. There’s nothing more exciting than the anticipation of boarding the ship! I promise, Beth, that the magic will be waiting for you when it’s your turn to board. 

    While waiting in the terminal, I like to view my dining rotation and scroll through the Daily Activity Schedule on the app. If you see something that catches your eye, click the heart icon to “favorite” an activity. The app will send a reminder about 15 minutes beforehand. These notifications are helpful, especially when you get caught up in all the excitement onboard. 

    I wish you safe travels and smooth sailing ahead. If there is anything else we can help you with, please ask. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Meet the Panelist: Tracie, Florida

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
