Booking Disney Cruise Line Shore Excursions, Dining Reservations, Spa Treatments and Children’s Programs – DCL FAQ’s –

on August 21, 2015

You can view your reservation at Disney Cruise Line where you can pre-book your Shore Excursions, Palo reservation and Spa treatments. If you have children under age 18 in your party, you can pre-register them for the kid’s programs.

The first step is to register on the Disney Cruise Line website. Next, you’ll need your Disney Cruise Line reservation number and the birthdate of the lead passenger. (Hint: If that date doesn’t work, try the date of another member of your party.)

There are four options to choose: Shore Excursions, Dining, Vista Spa and Children’s Programming. Within each category you can arrange your schedule of events. Changes and cancellations of your plans are just a click away.

One important part of pre-booking is to schedule your Port Arrival Time.  Disney Cruise Line offers staggered arrival times to help prevent congestion in the port, so you will need to pick from a list of available times.

The Booking Schedule is as follows:

  • 120 Days in Advance – Concierge Guests in Stateroom Categories 1 – 3 and Platinum Castaway Club Members

  • 105 Days in Advance – Gold Castaway Club Members In any Stateroom Category

  • 90 Days in Advance – Silver Castaway Cay Club Members In any Stateroom Category

  • 75 Days in Advance – New Disney Cruisers in Stateroom Categories 4 – 12

**Pre-booking requires that your cruise be paid in full. Reservations can be made up until 2 days prior to your arrival.**

When you view your reservation, you’ll see the cruise itinerary. If you’ve chosen excursions, Dining and/or Spa treatments, you’ll see that information listed on the day that you selected. It’s in an easy to print out format that you can take with you on your vacation.

While you will receive a packet of documents prior to your cruise, you can also access and print the Embarkation form, Payment Authorization form, Cruise Contract, Medical Information Form and Minor Authorization form.

Reservations are filled on a first come, first serve basis and some excursions, reservations and events have capacity limits. I encourage you to make reservations early to avoid any disappointment.

**PLEASE NOTE: Shore excursions are final and non-refundable once you’re within 3 days of your sail date.** Guests who choose not to pre-reserve shore excursions prior to their cruise may stop by the ship’s Shore Excursion Desk, located on Deck 3, on embarkation day, to check availability and purchase excursions. Due to limited availability, some excursions may not be available.

All guests with pre-reserved shore excursions will receive excursion tickets delivered to their stateroom on embarkation day. Payment for confirmed excursions will be billed directly to the guest’s shipboard account. Advance payment is not required or accepted.
