    What time does the on-line check-in process start on your designated check-in date?

    Hi Andrea,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! You must be getting close to your sailaway date, so let's get everything ready to go for your online check-in day!

    Online check-in begins at midnight (EST) on the day you are eligible to begin. It sounds like you are already familiar with your designated date based on your Castaway Club membership status and you have your calendar marked!

    To begin the process, log into your Disney Cruise Line online account or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app and select "Begin Online Check-In" under Already Booked or My Reservations, depending on your device of choice. 

    It is easier if you have your travel documents and photographs for everyone in your party organized prior to your check-in day. You can always finish the process in more than one sitting if needed. Andrea, here are some things you can expect with online check-in:

    I hope this information is helpful as you plan for the exciting day that will bring you one step closer to sailing away on a wonderful vacation, Andrea. Please let us know if you have other questions in the days ahead!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Meet the Panelist: Shannon, Georgia

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
