1. I think I can check in online from home - when should I do that?

2. Any place to do laundry (only if I absolutely HAVE to)

3. I am nervous to set my teen free unchaperoned - I watched the Cruise DVD - it said "no parents, only teens" at the teen club. I'm not satisfied with this - I feel the parent should be able to check in (not stay) & check out the situation at any time.

4. How dressy to dinner? My daughter & I are not dress people. We prefer slacks. I am assuming this is fine..... this is how it will be. How about boys - I am assuming khakis are fine..... this is also how it will be.

5. A.C. in the dining room - is it freezing in the dining rooms?

6. We have late dinner sitting? Will we have time to see the shows on each night - I am assuming they accomodate the early and late diners with multiple show times.

7. I read through a thread about having a pillowcawse signed - cool idea. We are only a 3 night cruise though. I like the idea of the photo mat also. When and where do I drop this item off?

Thank you SO much - 1 more month - then we're off to our first Dis cruise. I'm already looking forward to the next. I keep telling my husband what a GREAT time our family will have.:woohoo: :banana:

It will let you do that when your cruise is paid in full, but I don't know how soon in advance it will let you. I think you have until 2 days before you leave. I see you are leaving in a month, you can check in now. It really makes the preboard go a lot quicker

2. Any place to do laundry (only if I absolutely HAVE to)

There is a self serve laundry on every deck

3. I am nervous to set my teen free unchaperoned - I watched the Cruise DVD - it said "no parents, only teens" at the teen club. I'm not satisfied with this - I feel the parent should be able to check in (not stay) & check out the situation at any time.

You can go up with your teen the 1st night for the meet n greet. My DS was never too interested in the teen club. There are probably some threads on this, that may make you feel better about it.

4. How dressy to dinner? My daughter & I are not dress people. We prefer slacks. I am assuming this is fine..... this is how it will be. How about boys - I am assuming khakis are fine..... this is also how it will be.

That will be fine. Only the 7 night or longer cruises have formal nights.

5. A.C. in the dining room - is it freezing in the dining rooms?

I've never had a problem being chilled in the dining rooms, but you could pack a light sweater just in case

6. We have late dinner sitting? Will we have time to see the shows on each night - I am assuming they accomodate the early and late diners with multiple show times.

For late dining, you will see the shows before dinner, the early diners see it afterwards.

7. I read through a thread about having a pillowcawse signed - cool idea. We are only a 3 night cruise though. I like the idea of the photo mat also. When and where do I drop this item off?

We did pillow cases last cruise. I dropped them off at guest services the 1st day and they were returned to our stateroom on the last evening.

Thank you SO much - 1 more month - then we're off to our first Dis cruise. I'm already looking forward to the next. I keep telling my husband what a GREAT time our family will have.:woohoo: :banana:

Enjoy your cruise, I am sure you will LOVE it!:goodvibes
