    Hi there, We are going on a Disney Cruise in March 2017 from Port Carnerval. When do you receive your documents in the post from Disney? We are also based in Australia. Cheers

    Welcome aboard, Sharon!

    You must really be looking forward to a big trip this spring! Not only are you heading to the United States all the way from Australia, but you're getting ready to set sail with Disney Cruise Line too! What a magical vacation you will have!

    There are a few dates to be aware of before you leave for your trip. If this is your first sailing with Disney Cruise Line, you will be able to begin your online check-in 75 days prior to the ship's departure (90 or more days ahead for those who have sailed with Disney before). Since that is when you get to book all the fun extras like Port Adventures, you'll want to log in as soon as possible to be sure you get what you want. 

    Then, about a month to a month and a half before departure, you will receive your cruise documents via UPS, since you're in Australia. Be sure to fill out those forms and bring that booklet with you. You'll need these documents to check in once you arrive at Port Canaveral, along with a printout you can complete during online check-in.

    So, while you're waiting for March to arrive, be sure to spend some time browsing the Port Adventures, Adult Dining, Spa Treatments, and more so you're ready to begin your online check-in when it is time! Have fun as you continue to plan, Sharon, and let us know if you have any other questions before you head out to sea! We're happy to help!
