    We are sailing to Alaska Monday (our 2nd disney cruise) and my parents are going with us (their first). We did our online check in separately and have different boarding times. My family at 11:30 and parents at 1:00. Can we get on together?

    Welcome back, Jennifer! Only a few days left until you set sail to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder! Are you counting down the hours at this point? How exciting!

    The times that you chose when completing your online check-in are not boarding times but actually port arrival times. But, the good news is, if your entire party arrives at the port around 11:30, that is fine, no need for your parents to wait to arrive until 1:00. Once you arrive, you'll go to the Silver/Gold Castaway Club check-in line, since you've sailed before. Because your parents haven't sailed with Disney Cruise Line before, they will need to check in at the first time cruiser line. As you check in there, you'll be given a boarding number, and your parents will receive a different boarding number. Most likely yours will be a lower number. No problem, though. When your number is called, your parents can certainly walk onto the ship with you, simply showing your number for the whole party. 

    Then, your whole family will walk into the atrium lobby of the Wonder as the Cast Members announce your family name and applaud your arrival. Vacation officially begins! Hooray!

    Have so much fun, Jennifer, as you enjoy the Disney Wonder and get to explore Alaska!
