1. Transportation - After you’ve chosen your specific cruise, you’ll need to work on transportation to and from the port.
2. Excursions & Special Reservations - For first time cruisers, you’ll be able to check in and make reservations 75 days prior to your set-sail date (sooner for previous DCL cruisers).
3. Fish Extenders & Other Groups - Outside each cabin door is a decorative fish. Years ago, cruisers started hanging little pockets off of these fish for communication and delivery purposes.
4. Checking In - You’ll want to check in via the Disney Cruise Line website as soon as possible.
5. Navigator App - Before you leave, be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app.
1. Embarkation Day Bag - When you arrive at port, you’ll hand off your checked luggage to be delivered to your room.
2. What You Need - Of course, you’ll need to pack clothes and shoes that are appropriate to the climate you’ll be visiting.
3. What You Don’t Need - DCL has a “cruise casual” dress code for all dinners, which means you don’t need fancy clothes, unless you want to wear them.
4. Extra Items - If you plan on participating in optional theme nights such as Pirate Night and Formal Night, you’ll want to bring those clothing items along.
