    We only have 1 day stop at WDW during Magic cruise. I heard we can stay till fireworks, but what time do we need to catch the shuttle back to the ship? Where do they pick us up? Do shuttle to the ship make multiple stops? Thank you!!

    Ahoy Annie!
    It is wonderful to hear from you again!  My family enjoyed a cruise this past summer that included a stop at the happiest place on earth!  It was definitely one of the highlights of our eight-night Bahamian voyage!  On our sailing, we were given lots of detailed information on how our day ashore would work by the cruise director on our stateroom TV, written information left in our stateroom and also from the crew.  This made us feel very prepared as we disembarked the ship for our day at the Walt Disney World Resort.  On our particular sailing, the last buses left around 11:45pm, but it really will depend on the park hours for the day you are visiting.  Since the four parks close at different times, you can estimate the last shuttle from each park will be about an hour after closing.  Once you leave the theme park, you will head towards the Disney bus transportation pick-up area following the large Disney Cruise Line signs.  If you don't see them, just ask a castmember to point you in the right direction.  If your bus is not full, you may stop at one other park.  We boarded the bus for Port Canaveral at Disney's Hollywood Studios and did make a stop at Epcot before departing the Walt Disney World Resort.  It was very brief, and we were back in Port Canaveral in about an hour. 
    Thanks for continuing to use the Moms Panel for your cruise plans, Annie!  If you have more questions, please let me know!  I'm always happy to help!
    Have a magical day!
