Notes: All deadlines refer to the number of days prior to sailing. *Holiday Sailings are sailings that include Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day (U.S.) or July 4th. ** ”Non-US" refers to cruises that both begin and end in a non-US port.

Other fees: There is a $35/person fee for document reissue and name/air changes within 30 days of travel. There is a $50/person fee to change your sail dates 0–59 days prior to your cruise, plus the document reissue fee (if applicable). You can avoid some or all of these penalties if you reschedule your cruise, and insurance may also help.

Your cruise documents are mailed to you about a month before sailing. Read everything in your cruise document package and fill out the mandatory embark/departure form, cruise contract, immigration form(s), and payment authorization before you leave home. Note: You can fill out this paperwork for your cruise at http://www.disneycruise.com, but be sure to print it out and bring it with you. Three additional forms may also have to be filled out: the flight modification form (to change flights when you’re using Disney Air), Medical Information Form (to notify Disney of a pre-existing medical condition or special need), and the Minor Authorization Form (if you are traveling with a child of whom you are not the parent or legal guardian)—these forms are available online. Luggage tags are included with each cruise booklet—the booklet explains when to affix them (do not put them on your bags before you leave home if you’re in advance of your cruise). Your cruise document package is a personalized, spiral-bound booklet containing your official cruise documents, pre-printed luggage tags, pre-cruise checklist, embarkation information, and a vacation summary that lists all pre-reserved items (insurance, Palo/Remy meals, port adventures, etc.). Your cruise documents are required to board, and you should have them with you (or in your carry-on) on the day of departure. Don’t make the mistake of putting them in a suitcase that gets checked through.

Once your cruise is reserved, you may be eager to meet other families sailing with you on the same cruise. You can do this in advance of your cruise by posting your own sail dates on Disney Cruise Line message boards such as our own PassPorter Message Boards (http://www.passporterboards.com) or at CruiseCritic (http://www.cruisecritic.com). You can use these resources to plan get-togethers, find companions for your table in the dining rooms, or find playmates for your kids. You’d be surprised at how many of your fellow cruisers are online and eager to make friends!
