    When can I schedule my arrival time for the departure of the cruise?

    Ahoy, Susan!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you're asking about scheduling your arrival time at the Cruise Terminal, it must mean that you have booked an upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation and it's just around the corner! Yay! While I'm counting down the days until my Disney Cruise sets sail, I love to begin looking at all the exciting Port Adventures offered for each port of call on my itinerary!

    You will be able to schedule your Port Arrival Time during your online check-in once your advance booking window opens, which is 75 days prior to setting sail if this is your inaugural voyage with Captain Mickey! You'll find arrival timeframes for you to choose from during the online check-in process. If you are a Concierge-level Guest or a Platinum Castaway Club Member, you will not be issued a Port Arrival Time and may arrive any time after the Cruise Terminal opens. I recommend checking in as soon as you are able because Port Adventures, Port Arrival Times and onboard activities do tend to book quickly - especially since the advance booking window opens earlier for Guests who've taken one or more cruises!

    Disney Cruise Line asks Guests to arrive at the Cruise Terminal within their Port Arrival Time. Then, you'll get checked-in and receive a boarding number. Once they call your boarding number, you and your family will be boarding the ship and on your way to an adventure of a lifetime!

    Susan, if you can think of any more questions before your upcoming cruise, please don't hesitate to sail back and visit us again!
