You booked your cruise, selected Port Adventures, reserved special dining activities and so much more. But how do you keep all of your family’s activities organized so you don’t miss a thing?
In this article
Relax. You are sailing with Disney!
You will receive notices right to your stateroom for all activities you have booked. Palo and Remy send lovely note cards reminding you of reservation times. Senses Spa and Salon does the same if you have scheduled services with them. Paper tickets for Port Adventures are delivered to your room as well. These tickets indicate meeting times and locations so you know where to be well before it is time for you to disembark the ship for your time in port.
How to Print Out a Hard Copy of Your Cruise Itinerary
I know Disney has my entire cruise under control. I really don’t need to worry about a thing… but that isn’t my style. We are living in a digital world, and DisneyCruise.com has every cruise activity listed, but there is something reassuring about having a hard copy of your information in your hands and available at all times – no charging cords required.
This is what your cruise itinerary looks like… or rather mine, but you get the idea.
I wish there was a simple way to click and print – I tried every which way – but this is the easiest way to get a hard copy of your cruise itinerary.
Follow these 5 Steps below to print out this daily itinerary.
- Go to DisneyCruise.com. Locate the My Disney Cruise tab and select My Reservations from the drop down menu.
- You will see an overview of your Disney Cruise Line Reservation. Select Book Now.
- This next screen is a wonderfully interactive portal where you can book, change, cancel and rearrange daily activities for your cruise. I encourage you to get to know this area of the website! But for now, click on a BLANK AREA of any day (Day 3 for this tutorial).
- This pop up will show you a detailed schedule of the day you clicked. Select the View Details link at the bottom.
- Now you are at the Your Cruise Itinerary section of the website. Each tab has a wonderfully organized display of your activities for each day. Click PRINT and you have the choice of printing one day or your entire cruise. I like to print out my activities for the whole cruise.
I wish there was a way to get to the Disney pdf more quickly. However, this is one time when a few extra steps have a big pay off. The printable is very easy to read. They layout is nicely designed, and you will know what your plans are at just a glance.
I have a trip binder for all of my family vacations, and especially for Disney Cruises. I am sure this surprises no one. What do I recommend you keep in this binder?
- Port Arrival Forms: You will have one for each stateroom in your reservation. You print out this form during online checkin.
- Packing List
- Daily Itinerary: See above for printing instructions
- Printout of any activities you have reserved for your Port of Departure: ex. Kennedy Space Center tickets.
- Clean copy of the DCL Prep School Packing List.
- Hard copies of airline reservations, along with phone numbers.
- Hard copies of hotel reservations, along with phone numbers.
- Hard copy of car rental or car service reservation.
- Emergency phone numbers for a family member in the U.S. as cell phone service may not be available.
While any 3-ring binder should work. I like the Staples Better Binder. It has D rings and a little pouch in the front which was the perfect size for my spiral-bound cruise books and luggage tags. This binder comes in lots of fun colors. Available at Staples or through my affiliate link below.
