    Boarding the Disney Wonder 5/31 for 4 nights. Assigned to late dining but need to debark early when we return. Can we debark whenever we like or do they make you follow the assigned dining times for breakfast? If we get off early can we still eat first?

    You will be able to debark as soon as the ship is cleared by Customs.  Usually the earliest passengers debark is around 7:30 a.m. DCL asks passengers to vacate their staterooms by 8:00 a.m.

    Service aboard the Disney Wonder is very accommodating on the day the ship returns to Port Canaveral. Passengers are not obligated to attend breakfast served in the dining room. Unlike other cruise lines that I’ve sailed on in the past, passengers do not disembark in groups. Instead, your family will depart when you are ready as long as it is prior to 9:00 a.m.

    On my last cruise, I was offered the option of dining at a different time than my scheduled breakfast rotation although I opted to sleep in a bit later. Just speak with your Head Server on your last evening to see if your family can be accommodated at an earlier breakfast seating.  

    Your family may also want to consider having breakfast on Deck 9 at the Beach Blanket Buffet as this will allow you to keep to your own schedule.

    While a buffet breakfast is served on the morning of disembarkation, room service is not available as Mickey is busy preparing the ship for the next guests.

    Enjoy your magical voyage!
