    when do I select arrival time at departure port

    Ahoy there, Mark, and welcome to planDisney!   Thank you for visiting planDisney with your question.

    When it is time to select a Port Arrival Time, I know my Disney Cruise Line vacation is on the horizon!  You will select this time when you complete your Online Check-in, which happens according to your Castaway Club membership level:
    • Pearl: 40 days prior to sail date
    • Platinum: 38 days prior to sail date
    • Gold: 35 days prior to sail date
    • Silver: 33 days prior to sail date
    • First-time cruisers: 30 days prior to sail date
    Plan to arrive at the terminal at your scheduled Port Arrival Time because you will not be able to enter earlier. 

    For Online Check-in, you will need the address, contact information, emergency contact information, travel plans before and after the cruise, and simple photos from the shoulders up for each member of your traveling party. The headshots can be taken with a cell phone, but can only include one Guest in the photo at a time.  The background must be simple, and make sure it's in focus.  I took my photo in front of a blank wall, without my glasses on.

    Mark, I hope this helps you continue planning your upcoming cruise. If you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney for help.

    Adventure is out there!
