    If I book a port adventure(through DCL) on the navigator app that is estimated to end at the same time as our departure time, is there a chance we could miss the boat? Or will Disney make sure we get back and on before we leave?

    Ahoy Cory - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for swimming by with your question for our team of panelists. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Disney Cruise Line adventures!

    Port Adventures are such a great way to add even more excitement to any Disney Cruise Line sailing. I highly encourage you to add one or more to your crew's itinerary! Cory, I have some great news for you - all Port Adventures booked through Disney Cruise Line are worry-free, even in cases where timing doesn't perfectly line up. In fact, that's one of the huge benefits of booking directly rather than finding your own activities at a port of call.

    You see, the Port Adventures desk monitors and coordinates excursions with the ship's timing. For example, if the ship is late arriving at a port of call, excursion times will be adjusted or alternatives will be arranged. Likewise, in the unlikely event that an excursion runs late, the Captain will decide to wait or you may have complimentary transportation provided to the next port of call in extreme circumstances.

    The bottom line is this - you don't have to lift a finger! There are always surprises when sailing the high seas, and sometimes plans need to change. By booking your excursions directly through Disney Cruise Line you'll be able to relax and know that you'll be taken care of.

    Cory, I hope this information helps your planning efforts – stop by any time with additional questions! Oh, and before I forget, make sure to check out all the magical excitement surrounding Disney Cruise Line’s Silver Anniversary at Sea!

    Bon voyage!
