    Hi, we are booked on a three day cruise on the Disney dream in August, following a stay at the Carribbean Beach Resort. We booked Disney transport between the hotel and ship, but how do we know our pick up time and arrival time at the port? Thanks

    Hi there, Jacqueline!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What an incredible vacation you have planned!  You will get to experience ALL my favorite things in one trip – Walt Disney World Resort, a Disney Cruise AND Castaway Cay!  So much fun and adventure await you on land and at sea and I am so very excited for you!

    I am so glad you sailed by with this excellent question about the logistics of getting from Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort to Port Canaveral for embarkation.  I am so glad that you went ahead and booked ground transfers through Disney Cruise Line because they make it so easy for you!  When you complete your Online Check-In (75 days ahead of voyage – so be sure that date is marked on your calendar) you will get the opportunity to select a Port Arrival Time.  At this time, you will also note that you will be at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel prior to your voyage.  Then, the night before you head to Port Canaveral to meet Captain Mickey for your adventure to the Bahamas, you will receive transportation information in your room.  You will be notified with what time – and where – to meet for your transfer to Port Canaveral.  

    At the same time that you complete your Online Check-In you will have the opportunity to reserve onboard activities such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers, adult-exclusive dining (HIGHLY recommend) and excursions!  If you haven’t yet, go ahead and explore the many offerings though Port Adventures so you are ready to book when the time comes!

    As you continue planning for your adventure on land and at sea, please come back with any questions you may have!
