    Hi Andi, We are happy to be sailing on the Disney Dream in August and i am looking to book my flight. My question is at what time does the Disney Cruise line bus leave the airport so i can book accordingly. Thanks,

    Hi, Leigh! Having just returned from a voyage aboard the Disney Dream, can we both let out a collective "squeal" over your upcoming cruise this summer!?! Eeeeee! I can't wait for you to have your turn to sail!

    If you are booking your air travel independently of Disney Cruise Line, you simply need to make sure that your flight arrives at Orlando International Airport (MCO) no later than 1:45 p.m. on Embarkation Day. To add ground transfers to your cruise package, call (800) 951-3532 at least 75 days prior to your sail date. Please be prepared to provide your inbound and outbound flight details.You will receive travel documents in the mail in which there should be luggage tags. You'll attach these tags to your luggage at your home airport, and you won't see your luggage again until it arrives in your stateroom. (That makes it VERY important to pack essentials in your airline carry-on/cruise day bag for Embarkation Day.)

    Once you arrive at MCO, you'll proceed to Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center located on the ground floor of Side B of the airport. You will check in and board a motorcoach which will take you to the port terminal (approximately 45 minutes). Check in at the port begins at 10:30 a.m. with the first groups boarding around 1 p.m. Therefore, I like to arrive at the airport by mid-morning in hopes of being of the first to board.  I hope that helps you plan.  Thanks for stopping by!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
