    Hello, I am booking excursions for my upcoming cruise and I noticed that one that I liked is available for an 8:15AM start, but the ship doesn’t land until 8:30AM. Would this be a problem and should I pick a different excursion? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney Marcus! 

    As if a Disney Cruise isn't a "boat-load" of fun already, Port Adventures make a cruise even more amazing! I like booking directly through Disney Cruise so all I have to do is show up for a day of adventure!

    When booking a Port Adventure, you will select a time. Once onboard, you will receive information about your meeting time and location for your group to meet up. A crew member will make sure everyone booked on your Port Adventure is checked in, then they will walk you off the ship where you will make your way to either the actual adventure, or transportation to the location. For the Port Adventure you are looking at, they may want to start gathering the group at 8:15am even if you won't actually leave the ship until 8:30am. I guess what I am saying is "hakuna matata!" No worries, feel free to sign up for that early time. 

    Port Adventures will have limited space available, so sign up as soon as you have your adventure(s) picked out. If you prefer, you can sign up at the Port Adventures Desk once onboard, but you may be limited on options and times. 

    Whether you are booking a fun beach day, going ziplining, or heading to a historical landmark, enjoy your day of fun! When you get back to the ship, the crew will be excited to have you back onboard for an evening of wonderful dining, live entertainment, and so much more!

    If you have any other questions as you put the finishing touches on your magical cruise, stop back to your pals here at planDisney.

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
