Online Check-in
It is almost time for us to be able to check in online. What time of night can you begin the online check-in? :yay:

Im interested in knowing this too. I would assume that it is midnight tho.

mrsaunders 02-04-2013 12:13 PM

Its midnight....exactly!

Midnight ET for those not on the east coast.

It's et no matter where you are cruising from? I didn't think of that!

Online checkin and excursions reservations windows both open at midnight Eastern, regardless of what cruise you're taking.

And, you must log into your reservation AFTER midnight. Already being logged in and hitting Refresh after midnight won't do it. The DCL computer will think it's still the day/time it was when you logged in initially.

One more question. Do you need to complete checking before you do excursions, Palo...

DynamicDisneyDuo 02-04-2013 12:31 PM

No, you do not.

lovetotraveltx 02-04-2013 12:34 PM

Thank you!

emeraldluvsbama 02-04-2013 12:52 PM

Thanks everybody!!! We are central time so I won't have to stay up as late. :)

Thanks for the tip about logging in after midnight! I would have been upset! Thank goodness mine comes open on a saturday night.

Here's a tip - just do your bookings for Palo and shore excursions at the wee hours and do the rest of your check-in at your leisure the next morning (or whenever).

Also, if you put the excursions you want to do on your saved list, it makes it easier to find them and book them when the time comes.

Also, make sure your cruise fare is paid-in-full or DCL won't allow you to book shore excursions.

Our fare for an upcoming cruise was paid several months ago, but the travel agent entered it as a group booking with another family we've never heard of. they haven't paid in full so we aren't able to book shore excursions. :crazy2:

The travel agent promised to separate us from the other family and we'll be good to go tomorrow, but....

So excited!
Just received a DCL email reminding me that I can begin choosing my cruise activities soon. I knew this, of course, but it was exciting to get the reminder. Makes it all seem not so far away!

Am I correct that if you purchase airfare on your own, it does not have to be done during online check in? This can be added at a later time?
