    If sailing on Jan7,2023 what is the earliest day I can check in online ?

    Ahoy there, Darryl! Thanks for sailing our way here at planDisney! 

    Ah, starting the new year off in style with a Disney Cruise Line vacation? I like the cut of your jib, as they say around here! While you'll not have to escape a cold Midwestern winter as we do, any time is a good time to sail, and January is one of my family's favorites! 

    When it comes to your Online Check-In, Guests can begin that process as soon as it opens 30 days prior to your sail date! More appropriately, the system opens for check-in 29 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds before...but who's counting? That puts you right at the stroke of midnight on December 8th, 2022. I always use the countdown on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to check whether we're at 30 days and some hours, or 29 days and some hours - it's really helpful because what a difference a day makes!

    Be sure to have your Travel Documentation, a clear photo of each of your crew, and remember that you must be paid in full to be able to complete Check-In! You'll complete cruise documents, get any little sailors registered for youth activities, and select the all-important Port Arrival Time!

    I hope that helps make for smooth sailing, Darryl! Thank you so much for your question, and if you have any others as your cruise gets closer, drop another message in a bottle this way at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
