    I've selected and booked Port Adventures in Nassau Bahamas but has not been directed to pay nor do I find anything in my itinerary on how to pay. Do I pay for this there or is there anyway I can pre-pay?

    Hi Sylvia!

    Welcome back; I am so glad to “sea” you back at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  With your Bahamian adventure on the horizon I know the excitement is building…especially once you get to complete your Online Check-In and book onboard activities and Port Adventures!  Before long you will receive your cruise information booklet along with luggage tags and then the countdown is really on!

    All onboard activities that you reserve ahead of your sailing, including Port Adventure excursions, will be charged to your onboard stateroom account.  You have up until three days prior to your sailing to cancel any excursions in the event that you change your mind or another activity calls your name!  There is no way to pre-pay for your excursions and I think that because in the event of a weather-related cancellation, refunds do not need to be issued to all Guests who have reserved a particular activity.  You will see the charge for the excursion on your stateroom account at the end of your voyage.

    One thing that you can pre-pay for are the gratuities paid to your stateroom host or hostess, and your dining room servers.  It is completely optional to prepay these, but sometimes we like to go ahead and prepay them and then add in some extra to those extra special Cast Members!  You can prepay gratuities by calling Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532.  If you opt to not prepay them, then the charge will be on your account; but please know you can always go to Guest Services to change the amount if you choose to do so.

    You know what the best thing about already reserving your port excursion is?!?  Now, all you have to do is show up and ENJOY!!

    Happy Sailing!
