Still over 40 days until the first cruise, so I imagine that info will be released shortly.
I appreciate that but seeing as cancellations have to be done by 30 days out you would have hoped they would have given people time to decide if they still want to cruise. The PCR issue doesn't actually effect my party (all over 18 and double vaccinated) but I just find it odd that they haven't given this info yet.

They probably arent saying much to give them scope to manoeuvre, however as a customer, I feel they should be managing our expectations a bit more...

I am a UK resident (living here 6 years) but a little concerned about the check-in process and proof of ID. I have an Irish passport and no official UK ID (although obviously my billing / postal address is UK) but I assume a lot of people are in the same position. Has anyone confirmed if additional proof of UK residence is required? I have bills etc but just worried I'll have some issue trying to check in.

Does your Drivers license have your UK address on it?

I agree on the PCR test. We are on the CM test / preview cruise on 9th July and have 2 under 18's. No info from disney as yet relating to logistics or cost.....

    Yep - on the Magic from Southampton. I'll try and update with any info before and do a mini trip summary after 👍
    I would also love to hear your thoughts on this one. My cruise isn't until September but I can't wait to find out more about what will actually be happening on these cruises. I'm very excited to be going on my first Disney Cruise.

    Thanks guys. We are sailing from Friday 9th to Monday 12th.

    Had our 30 day booking window yesterday for kids activities, shows and (I believe ) the gym area. Manged to book all 8 of our party in for the 5.15pm showing on day 3 for the theatre (Dreams). We have the 8.15am dining. Worth also noting that within 10mins the 5.15pm Dreams show for the Friday was booked out.

    My sister-in-law booked a slot for the Oceaneers lab for my nephew on the Saturday (day 2) at 2.30pm.

    I couldn't seem to book any fitness activities and had already booked beer tasting for the Saturday

    Hi, thanks for the info, can you just book Dreams once? And what time of day did the booking window open please? Many thanks

    That’s interesting, is there just the one CM preview cruise?

    Also interested to know if it was a 5am opening? And for the theatre is it just a time slot you book rather than selecting any specific seats?

    Thanks!

    Thanks - TBH I'm not sure because we only booked one show.

    When I go back in the app for the Friday its shaded out. I'm not sure if that's because a) you can only book one show or b) because its booked up

    Thanks - I think there is only one CM cruise but could be wrong. I would imagine so with it relatively close to the 16th.

    With regard the show - its just a slot and their seems to be two. 5.15pm and 8pm

    re 5am - do you mean the gym?

    Was there good availability for the kids club? My concern is getting the kids clubs aligned with my Palo booking.

    Can’t wait to read about it! Do you have to book online 30 days out for on board activities for that sailing too?
    We did for the 30 day window activities. We could book other activities (wine tasting etc) earlier if we had settled the bill.
