    Hi we have booked our first cruise in Jan, I am so excited!! We are flying into MCO leaving out of Port Canaveral. However our flight gets in at 4:30am I am trying to figure out if there is anything we can do while waiting to board our ship. Can you help

    Hello Melissa,

    Thanks for sailing by!  How exciting that your first Disney Cruise Line voyage is only a few months away.  The Disney Cruise Terminal at Port Canaveral is bright and airy and filled with anxious passengers waiting for their magical voyage.  The terminal doesn't open until 10:30 am, however, so you will want to time your arrival based on your port arrival time as indicated when you complete your online check-in.  If you arrive at Orlando International Airport very early, I actually recommend that you spend some time having breakfast exploring the airport, which is filled with many wonderful shops.  If you are renting a car and driving to Port Canaveral, you could also explore Cocoa Beach or head to some of the shops or restaurants near the port for breakfast while you wait to board.  

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
