    I am boarding Disney Wonder Cruise from San Deigo in Feb 2023. I want to know the embarkation process and timing when we return to San Deigo. We have a plane to catch and want to make the right choice for flight.

    Ahoy Fei!

    Thanks for sailing over to planDisney with this question. I just love chasing the line where the sky meets the sea on one of Disney Cruise Line's gorgeous ships. No matter what course you chart, I just know you'll have a WONDERful voyage from San Diego

    I took a look at the upcoming sailings and noticed that they are scheduled to return to San Diego between 8:00 a.m. and  8:30 a.m., assuming no unexpected issues or delays. I also double-checked the Ground Transportation details and see that Disney Cruise Line advises 11:45 a.m. as the earliest departure time from San Diego International Airport on Debarkation Day. I would adjust this to include additional travel time if you'll be flying from another airport.

    You'll receive Character luggage tags the evening before disembarkation if you'd like your luggage removed from the ship for you. Be sure to place bags outside your Stateroom door by the designated time, and you'll collect them from the port terminal after clearing Customs. This way you can enjoy a final breakfast on board without struggling with your precious cargo or pirate treasure. Breakfast times are staggered, but guests will typically be off the ship between 9:00 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. 

    If you are pressed for time, you can also opt for Express Walk-Off. This will usually happen around 8:30 a.m., but you will be responsible for your own bags as you disembark the ship. You can stop by Guest Services on Deck 3 of the Wonder if you need any assistance during your sailing. 

    I hope this helps set you up for smooth seas!

    Bon Voyage!
