    Can Wifi be purchased ahead of time on a DCL?

    Ahoy there!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, it's nice to have you sailing with us!

    As much as I love being disconnected during a cruise, I know that there are times when you need to be able to check on things back home. Disney Cruise Line does offer a variety of onboard internet packages, which you can purchase that service using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once you are onboard the ship. There is not currently an option to purchase internet plans in advance. 

    When you board the ship you will be able to see the internet packages available for your particular cruise. You may have the option to purchase internet just for 24 hours or for your entire voyage. Remember to have a little extra patience, because all internet speeds at sea might experience more turbulence than you're used to on land. Remember that guests have access to free texting using WhatsApp and iMessage while on board, too!

    The Disney Cruise Line Navigator App is the best way to access all the fun happening on your ship, no internet purchase required! I really love the countdown feature that tells me exactly how soon my next cruise is. You can also use the app to manage your reservation and book activities. Once you board the ship the app is overflowing with information about entertainment, food, and fun! 

    Whether posting your favorite photos to social media or kicking back on the pool deck to relax, I hope you have an incredible time sailing with Disney Cruise Line!

    Keep moving forward!
