What information do I need when I do online check-in?

My alarm is set for midnight so I can get the 11-11:30 PAT, hopefully. What info should I have ready? Do I have to have Passport numbers, birthdates etc. Can I go back in during the day to add things?

I just did this,Yes you need passports info I needed flight info, where you are staying before and after with addresses and phone number, credit card to set up on board charging.
Yes you can go back in. you need to do each stage before it would let you go on to the next

Name, address, date of birth, etc. for each person...pay source for onboard account, arrival/departure info and where you will be going after the cruise, passport or other ID number.

ANYTHING you enter can be edited later, so don't hesitate to accept a default and move on. For instance, if you don't have the credit card number, indicate that it is a cash account. Then a week from now, go back in and edit. Passport not handy, indicate birth certificate and later edit (unless your cruise requires passports).

On my past dis cruises I could input all our I'd info, birth dates, etc at any time after we booked now that is all part of the online checking when your 90 days etc is up?

Just wondering if being online at midnight to get this done ASAP is necessary for concierge guests?

Nope, the main reason people like to do on-line checkin as soon as they can is to get an early arrival time. Since you are concierge, you will not be assigned an arrival time. I did my on-line checkin at the 120 day mark just because I was excited.

Honestly, I don't understand why people rush to do this at midnight. I just did this myself the other day, waited till almost noon of the following day, and had no problem with an 11:00 PAT and there were at least 5 cabanas left (not that I reserved one, yikes on the price!) I was also able to get Palo dinner and brunch, all times available. I don't know, does anyone else agree about this midnight thing? Don't stress out OP, you'll get everything you need. The online checkin is a breeze .

Yeah, but what's your window? When you can't book until 75 days out (or even sometimes 90 days), a lot of stuff isn't available.

Ah yes, my apologies. I competely forgot about that. I am a CC silver member and maybe that is why everything was so easily available. Good luck to the OP!

Quick question...

This is our 2nd disney cruise...when do I get to do online check-in? Will I get an email or something or do I need to set myself a reminder? Thanks!

As a silver member you do your check in at 90 days out. If you go to your reservation on DCL it will show you the date you can.

Excuse the ignorance - this is my first DCL cruise.
What is the advantage of doing online check in so early?
We are using DCL transport, (so I am assuming that will determine our PAT), and we do not wish to book any premium restaurants, cabanas etc. Can I not just check in at a later date?
Being from the UK, I am assuming that I will need passport numbers etc to check in and both mine and DS's will need renewing before the cruise. I was planning to get those done at the end of March.
Also, there will be three adults in our cabin, and we intend to each have a separate account and, thus, we will need to register three different credit cards to our cabin. Will this complicate matters?
Thanks for your help.
