    What time do port adventures and on board activities typically get added on the app? Most of the events I am interested in sell out and I am worried about missing out

    Hi there, Katie, and welcome to planDisney! 

    It sounds like you're all set for an amazing Disney Cruise adventure! With your reservation paid in full, you're now ready to plan all the exciting Port Adventures and onboard activities. If this is your first Disney Cruise, remember to mark your calendar for the 75-day mark before your sailing so you can dive in and secure your preferred activities as soon as your booking window opens at midnight.

    If you’re like me and eagerly watching the countdown on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, keep in mind that the app shows the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until your adventure begins. So, if this is your first cruise, you’ll sign in at 74 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes. 

    If you find that some of the activities you wanted to book are already sold out, don't worry, Katie! Guests often change their plans, which can result in cancellations. So, even if an activity is initially sold out, it's worth checking back regularly for any openings. In fact, I‘ve been able to reserve sold-out Port Adventures and Palo Brunch just by keeping an eye out for cancellations. So, don't give up hope if your first choice is initially unavailable. 

    With your itinerary full of exciting plans, the next step is to complete the online check-in and select your Port Arrival Time. The link also opens at midnight, thirty days before sailing for first-time Guests. You’ll need to have a few things handy to ensure a smooth check-in process.

         1. A picture of everyone’s passport or citizenship documents.
         2. Contact information for all guests. 
         3. Credit card number for onboard charges. 
         4. An individual color photo of each Guest against a neutral background. 

    Once you've entered all this information, you can select your Port Arrival Time.

    With your itinerary filling up and your check-in on the horizon, all that's left to do is pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable vacation! If you have any more questions or need further assistance, stop by again. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees.
