    we are cruising on Disney Fantasy on 08/31/13, I have already checked in but havent received the assigned arrival time at the terminal. when can I expect to receive that information? we are taking the disney cruise transportation from airport to port.

    Welcome aboard, Ana! Your Disney Fantasy cruise is just around the corner. Surely the time will fly by and before you know it, your family will be walking into that gorgeous atrium lobby on the ship, as the Cast Members announce your family name and applaud your arrival!

    Since you will be taking Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation, you do not need to worry about your port arrival time. Though, during online check-in, one of the last steps before you are allowed to print your cruise documents is for you to choose a port arrival time from a list of options. Choose any available time, as it won't matter. And if for some reason, you don't see that option, then don't worry about it. You will arrive whenever the ground transportation arrives, and Disney will be expecting you!

    As you arrive at the Orlando airport, simply proceed to the Disney Ground Transportation area and check in with the desk there. Your DCL marked bags will be taken by the cruise staff before you even see them, so you can simply board the next motorcoach heading for Port Canaveral and you'll be on your way. 

    The Disney Cruise Line motorcoaches depart Orlando's airport from 9:45 a.m. to about 1:45 p.m. on a regular basis, so whenever you arrive, you shouldn't have to wait long to board the motorcoach. As you arrive at the port, all you need to do is check in and wait for your boarding number to be called, and your vacation can officially begin!

    Have fun as you continue planning and please let me know if you have further questions before you set sail. I'm happy to help!
