    We hAve never cruised DCL before, and have only cruised once before, in 1994. Monday is the 75 day mark for us. Should we expect our package on Monday or will it be sent on Monday.

    What will be in the package and what actions do I need to take?

    TIA.

    You wouldn't be getting any "mail" from Disney until 3 - 4 weeks in advance of your trip.

    The 75 day mark is significant for two things...
    1.) This is the Pay in Full (PIF) date. All funds are required by this time or else your reservation in cancelled.
    2.) For first time cruisers, you are able to start booking excursions, spa treatments, adult dining and nursery time (for the under 3 crowd). You will also pick your boarding time. You do this on line on the disney cruise line website. The website opens up at 12:00am EST for reservations and 3 am EST for check-in and picking port times.

    have fun, this is a wonderful vacation!

    As a first time cruiser, at 75 days out, your booking window for shore excursions/adult dining/spa/nursery become available, this opens at midnight Eastern time. Also your online checkin is available the same day at 3:00 am. I will point out these times are only if the DCL website is cooperative. It may be later in the morning. If you plan on doing any shore excursion, adult dining, or nursery time this is when you would to it.

    Your cruise documents will arrive approximately 30 days out from your cruise. This is a small booklet containing information about your cruise. This includes port arrival information, any excursions you may have booked, as well as emergency contact cards you can give to friends/family, and your luggage tags.

    Yes, you can sign in to check that it works before time to register. It just won't let you register.

    You will need the reservation number and the birthdate of one of the people on the reservation to log in. I think you may have to set up a log in ID, also.
