Kids club check-in

Hello, I have registered my kids online for kids club. Do I still need to stand in the kids club line at the port? Or can they get the wristbands from the clubs after we board?

I registered online too and we just got a band the first time we checked him in.

You can pick up the wrist bands any time from your arrival at the terminal until the first time you want to drop the kids off at the OC--totally up to you. Personal recommendation--wait and do it on the ship. The line in the terminal can be insane.

1st time cruiser with kids...

How do you register your kids online into the kids clubs?

We used AAA to book the cruise, so we never really saw any websites, etc.

You should have a DCL reservation number from the AAA booking/paperwork (we booked our cruise through AAA as well).

You can use the number on the disney cruise website to see your itinerary and book shore excursions, sign kids up for the kids club and provide all your passport/personal info online ahead of arriving at port.

OK, thanks. I just looked at my AAA paperwork & can't find a DCL#. I'll have to contact the TA tomorrow for it.

Strange, did you get an email confirmation? My agent provided a confirmation email right from the Disney Cruise web page and it had the cruise confirmation number right there. With the cruise reservation number and your birthdate, you can access your reservation on the Disney cruise site. Good luck!

We waited in that line last year because I didn't know if we needed to or not. Happy to hear we don't, thanks!

Yes! We just waited in line last week, also not realizing we could've done it at the club. The line was very long! Will skip it next time!

I guess if the line isn't too long and it's going to be a while before you get to board, you could finish registration in the terminal. On our recent cruise, we initially got in line at the terminal but they were about to call our boarding number so we left the line and just went to the club later in the day once onboard.

Edge Registration?

I just registered my youngest son for Oceaneer on our April cruise. I'm wondering though, why I couldn't register my older son online for the Edge. Are the Tweens supposed to be registered for Edge?

The Edge does not require pre-registration, because they check themselves in and out.
