Disney Cruise Line: Cruise Documents

by on September 22, 2013

You’ve booked your Disney Cruise Line voyage and paid in full! You’ve selected your shore excursions, gourmet dining, spa, and childcare extras! Now all you have to do is relax until you get your official Disney Cruise Line documents.

Your official Disney Cruise Line documents will come in a spiral-bound booklet.

TIMING

Approximately 45-30 days prior to your sailing, you will receive your official Disney Cruise Line documents in the regular mail. The official documents come in the form of a spiral-bound booklet, approximately 5” x 8”. If you have not received your cruise document booklet 30 days before your trip, notify your travel agent or Disney Cruise Line. DCL can be reached at (800) 951-3532, whenever you have a question or problem with your booking, calling here is your most likely first step.

Please note that if members of your sailing party live at different addresses, they will likely receive a spiral documentation booklet at each address. This will even happen if the only members of the party at a particular address are children, as may be the case with grandparents taking grandchildren on a cruise.

IMPORTANT STUFF

DO NOT THROW OUT YOUR DISNEY CRUISE LINE DOCUMENT BOOKLET. (Really, I mean it.)

BRING IT WITH YOU TO YOUR SAILING. (Yes, I mean this too.)

DO NOT PACK IT IN ANY CHECKED LUGGAGE. KEEP IT WITH YOU IN CARRY ON LUGGAGE ON YOUR WAY TO YOUR EMBARKATION PORT. (And you know I mean this part.)

WHAT’S IN THE DOCUMENT BOOKLET

Inside the front pocket of your documentation booklet, you’ll find two luggage tags for each member of your party. If the information on these tags is incorrect, or if you find you need more tags, call Disney Cruise Line as soon as possible.

Disney Cruise Line: Get to Know the Planning Center

by on August 28, 2013

A key part of your Disney Cruise Line booking is the cruise Planning Center on the DCL website found at disneycruiseline.com/plan. You can only access the Planning Center with a reservation number – available after you’ve paid your deposit and gotten your confirmation email. In addition to the reservation number, you’ll also need to have access to the birth date of at least one member of your party.

The Planning Center Includes:

  • The Reservation Summary Basic factual information such as your stateroom number; dining time assignment; names of the guests in your party; air transportation, ground transportation, and WDW hotel information, if you have booked any of these through Disney; trip itinerary, including ashore and on board times for port days. Remember that if your party has booked multiple staterooms, you will have multiple reservation numbers. In order reserve excursions or on board activities, you will need the correct reservation number for each member of your party and to be in the Planning Center for the correct stateroom.
  • My Cruise Activities. Descriptions of the port adventures and on board activities available during your sailing, including excursions, spa treatments, adult dining, child care, and more. After you’ve paid your cruise fee in full and as your travel date nears, this becomes the booking center for these items.
