    If I all ready payed for the trip, why do I have to wait until the 13 to start booking activities?

    Welcome aboard, Maria! Your cruise must be coming up very soon. I can only imagine that you're anxious to get onto the website to begin booking all those fun extras like Port Adventures and Adult Exclusive Dining!

    If this is your first cruise with Disney, your online check-in will begin 75 days prior to sailing. Guests who have sailed with Disney Cruise Line before become members of the Castaway Club. One of the perks of being a Castaway Club member is that they have earlier access to online check-in, 90 or more days in advance of sailing, depending on how many cruises they've completed with Disney.

    Don't worry too much about booking your activities, as even though some popular ones book up quickly, most of the time, there will be plenty of Port Adventures and reservations for Adult Dining to choose from when you begin your online check-in. That being said, don't wait too long after your window to book opens because all other guests will be booking then too.

    So, until it's time to begin online check-in, Maria, browse Disney Cruise Line's website to decide on which activities are "must-do's" on your list and then be ready on the 13th to begin booking! Have fun planning and enjoy a wonderful cruise!
