    I am platinum with castaway club how soon before my cruise can I do online check in

    Ahoy there, Judyann! Welcome aboard the decks here at planDisney! 

    Ah, a fellow Platinum Castaway Club member! It's always great to meet another experienced Disney Cruise Line vacationer! I'm sure your plans for this August are coming along swimmingly, and before long you'll be relaxing while Captain Minnie charts a course for adventure! Consider me fully jealous! 

    When it comes to Online Check-In for your cruise, it always opens to everyone 30 days (or more accurately, 29 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes before your sail date, regardless of Castaway Club status! I always like to get Online Check-In done right away so I can see what available Port Arrival Time time our family will get, so I'd be sure to set a reminder for 12:00 a.m. Thursday, July 7! Yes, even us Platinum Castaway Club members have to choose a port arrival time at the moment!

    While this is a change from before many of the new health and safety protocols went into effect, by all accounts, it seems to have made a positive difference in how embarkation day proceeds! 

    Now, with Online Check-In sorted, I sure hope you've taken advantage of your Platinum status already and were able to book your Port Adventures and Onboard Activities earlier this month! By my calculations, the Platinum booking window opened on April 7th for your sailing! Talk about getting a jump on summer! 

    I certainly hope that helps you plan for later this year and getting everything settled for smooth sailing! Thank you so much for your question, Judyann! If you have any additional questions as you continue planning, please drop me another line at planDisney! 

    Fair winds and following seas!
