    How do I arrange for an early port arrival time on embarkation day? I have not seen that opportunity. We will be picked up at the airport and will be there on the night before.

    Ahoy Patricia –

    Thanks for stopping by for a visit with us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am pleased to assist you with arranging an early port arrival time on embarkation day. For my crew, embarkation day is an exciting prospect, and we always plan to arrive at the terminal early. You will have an opportunity to choose your port arrival time when you complete your Online Check-In.

    Castaway Club Guests who have sailed previously will be able to start check-in based on their status:

    Concierge and Platinum 120 days prior to embarkation
    Gold Castaway 105 days prior to embarkation
    Silver Castaway 90 days prior to embarkation
    First time cruisers 75 days prior to embarkation

    After checking in, you can choose a port arrival time and indicate to Disney Cruise Line your trip information (whether driving in, flying in, staying at a hotel the night before). Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation can provide transfers to the port if desired; please reserve a seat at least 3 days ahead of time. Patricia, I hope this helps answer your question, but if you need more help we will be here for you.
