If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !
DLRP is quite simply my spiritual home

Please excuse my ignorance (first cruise)
We are taking the Disney transport from WDW to the port for a 7 night on the Fantasy.
When we do online check-in, will we be given a PAT that takes in to consideration that we are on the Disney transport or will we have to choose a time for ourselves? If so, which slot will we choose? As we sail on 1st June, and are first timers, when can we do on- line check in?
Thanks for all your help xxx

When you do your online check in you may select a PAT of whatever you wish (well, from the available open windows). The PAT when using DCL transfers is a little bit of a moot point, as you will enter the terminal when the bus get there (regardless of what time it is), but your boarding number that you get when you checkin at the port is tied to your PAT. An earlier PAT will give you a lower boarding number.

As first time cruisers your window for online checkin opens 75 days out from the cruise.

Off the Majic in November out of Galveston. We arrived at the terminal about 12:30 and were able to walk right on the ship and going through customs and check-in. We are Platinum, but it was open boarding when we arrived at 12:30. The parking situation is a little different that Port Canaval. I would arrive about 30 minutes early if you desire to get on board quicker. I will be on the 15 February cruise out of Galveston again.

Hapy cruisng to you!
