    When can we start to book activities for our October 21-25 cruise?

    Welcome back, Pam!

    I know it's still early in the year, but it's never too early to begin dreaming about your fall sailing with Disney Cruise Line! I begin planning my next Disney cruise the moment we disembark from the cruise we're on, I just can't get enough!

    If this is your first cruise with Disney, your window for online check-in will begin 75 days prior to departure at midnight Eastern Time. Guests who have sailed with Disney before will begin their online check-in 90 or more days prior to the cruise, based on Castaway Club level, but it sounds like this is your first sailing, so be ready at 75 days prior to log on and book those fun extras like Port Adventures, certain specialty Character Greetings, Adult Exclusive dining and more. Since Castaway Club members will be able to pre-book these things earlier than first-time guests, you'll not want to wait to log in, as some activities do fill up. Mark that date on your calendar, Pam and you'll be all set. You can confirm the exact date for your online check-in by logging into your reservation with Disney Cruise Line. There you should see a note saying when your online check-in begins. For your October 21 cruise, that should be August 7, which is 75 days prior to your sail date.

    Until then, take some time to explore your must-do's on Disney Cruise Line's website, Pam, and you'll be all ready!
    Have such fun planning!
