    What time should we arrive at Port for our cruise?

    Ahoy, Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Are you counting down the days until your upcoming Disney Cruise? You will be amazed at all there is to see, do and eat (haha!) while sailing the high seas with Captain Mickey! I can't wait for your voyage to begin!

    You asked a wonderful question! You should arrive at the Cruise Terminal during your designated Port Arrival Time. You will be able to select your designated Port Arrival Time during your Online Check-In once your advance booking window opens. For first-time cruisers, the advance booking window opens 75 days prior to embarkation day. At this time, Guests can not only choose their Port Arrival Time and begin checking in to their cruise, but they can also start booking Port Adventures! Since Guests who've sailed with Captain Mickey previously get to begin their Online Check-In before Guests who are on their first cruise, the earlier a first-timer begins Online Check-In the better!

    Once you arrive at the Cruise Terminal during your designated Port Arrival Time, your Disney Cruise is about ready to set sail! After checking in for your cruise at port, you'll receive a boarding number. Once your boarding number is called you'll be boarding the ship and before you know it, dancing with Captain Mickey and his friends at the Sail-Away Celebration!

    Lisa, if you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again! We're thrilled to help make your upcoming Disney Cruise smooth sailing.
