Cruise Documents

Hi all! We are taking our first Disney cruise on the Fantasy in September!!! I've been looking forward to this for a LONG time!

My question is...when do they send the cruise documents? This is a surprise for our kids, so I want to make sure I make it to the mailbox before they do!

We got ours about a month out. Some people have said they got them at 6 weeks, some at 2, so YMMV.

Tagless and bitter about it but apparently only thing I hate is when I 'spring a wire. ;-)

Your luggage tags will be in this mailing too! Happy cruising!

For our cruise next month (8/19) we received our docs last week, so about 5 weeks prior to our sail date. Out of 12 cruises, that is the earliest we have ever received our docs. So that you can keep the surprise, I would suggest checking the mailbox starting about 6 weeks out.

If you booked with a Travel Agent, they (usually) will get them first-go over them and then mail them to you.

If you booked DCL directly-they will come to your house.

Either way (we've done both) you should get them 2-6 weeks before your cruise.

Have fun, good for you on keeping a secret!!!
