    We are arriving very early the day of the cruise. What is there to do at Port Canaveral?

    Hi there, Diana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line sailing aboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy!  I know you must be getting excited and it will be here sooner than you think!

    Cape Canaveral is approximately one hour from Orlando and where you will embark on your magical vacation!  If you are arriving early in the day to Cape Canaveral, there are a variety of things to do in the area to keep yourself busy prior to arriving at Port Canaveral.  Kennedy Space Center is nearby that you may want to visit or you may want to find a local beach to spend some time at!  When you complete your Online Check-In prior to your sailing, you will choose a Port Arrival Time in which you will want to be at the Port by for check-in.  The Port opens at approximately 11:00AM and embarkation will usually begin around 1PM and all Guests must be onboard by 3:45PM.  Restaurants are open onboard when you get on the ship for a late lunch.  I also recommend bringing a day bag with swim suits if anyone in your travel party may want to start enjoying the pools

    As your planning continues, please feel free to come back with any additional questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
