    Hello again "Moms", my question this time is on the day of our disembarkation we have a 12:10 flight. Do you thing we will make it through customs and to the airport in time? Truly cannot wait for this trip sailing on the Magic on April 6. Thank

    Hi Jennifer,

    The earliest departure flight which Disney Cruise Line recommends is 12:30pm.  They have good reasons for it too.  US Customs has to clear the ship to allow passengers to disembark.  Sometimes that may not be until after 7:30am.  You are offered breakfast on board before you leave, then you still have to find your luggage, get through US Customs with your family, get to your transportation and then load everything up.  The trip to the airport takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour, depending on traffic.  THEN, you need to get through airport security and find your gate.   I know, sounds exhausting right?

    Now, you have a 12:10 flight, pretty darn close to the 12:30 suggestion.  I think that if you don't have checked luggage and you have a quick breakfast you should be okay.

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.  Happy sailing!!!
