    Hi there, Tammy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!   I am sure you are so excited for your upcoming Bahamian sailing aboard the beautiful Disney Dream!  You will have a magical time onboard and will love the newest live show, “Beauty and the Beast”; it simply cannot be missed!  And with stops at both Nassau and Castaway Cay, you are in for some fun days in the sun!  I am so excited for you and know you must be anxiously watching that Cruise Countdown Clock tick down!

    As long as you are booking an excursion through Disney Cruise Line’s Port Adventures, you don't need to worry about the time being earlier than the scheduled "All Ashore" time.  The time you are reserving is probably referring to the “meeting time” and once the boat is cleared for Guests to disembark, you will be ready to go! Booking excursions through Port Adventures makes things so easy for you!  The fantastic team will take care of everything for you to and you just need to show up and enjoy!  Oh, and they definitely do offer the best of the best opportunities for the ports you will visit!  A great thing about having an early morning departure for your excursion is that if you get back to the port before you need to be back onboard you can spend some time exploring and shopping around the port!  Near the port in Nassau there is plenty of shopping to be done and lots to see, including a really fun market with lots and lots of souvenirs!

    I know you will have an incredible time on your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation, Tammy!  Please come back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues!

    Happy Sailing!
