    Do I get to start making excursion reservations as soon as my balance is paid in full or is there a certain number of days that I'm allowed to start booking? Thanks - love the panel!

    Welcome back, Mindy! You're slowly inching closer and closer to setting sail with Captain Mickey! I always get excited when it's time to make our Port Adventure and Adult Exclusive Dining reservations as it means the cruise isn't too far off!

    Since you are first time guests with Disney Cruise Line, your online check-in will begin when you are 75 days prior to sailing and your cruise is paid in full. It's always a good idea to have a list of the adventures and any other extras that you'd like to book. Then, once your booking window opens at 75 days out, log in to your reservation and begin adding activities under My Cruise Activities. There you can choose each day of your sailing and add specific adventures, dining, or any other special reservations like spa treatments. 
    Because Castaway Club Members (those who have cruised with Disney previously) are able to book these extras before first time guests, it's not a bad idea to log in the first day you are able, as this will give you a better chance at getting the reservations you'd like before they fill up.

    I hope that helps, Mindy! Keep me up to date with your plans, and of course stop back with any other questions you might have!
