    I have a Disney Cruise booked after a stay @ WDW resort. I have booked the bus transportation to Cape Canaveral from the resort. When does the bus leave the resort to arrive at the dock? When does the bus depart from the dock to return to the resort?

    Ahoy Karen!
    A surf and turf Disney vacation is a wonderful way to experience the magic and wonder of Disney on both land and sea!  Using Disney Cruise Line transportation will make for a smooth and seamless transition from the resort to ship.  The motor coach is cool, comfy and takes all the stress out of the start of your cruise vacation.  I can't give you an exact time the motor coach will arrive because it can vary from sailing to sailing depending on where cruise Guests have chosen to stay pre-cruise.  You can ask upon check-in, but usually a letter or voicemail in your resort room will inform you the day before your departure.  Luggage is usually picked up first around 8:00am while Guests depart between 10:00am to 12:00pm.  The ride over to the port is about an hour, but will sail by as you watch the Disney Cruise Line entertainment on the way. 
    If you are going back to the resort, motor coach buses will be waiting for you after you disembark the ship which will be between 7:30am and 9:30am.  After you enjoy your "Welcome Home" breakfast (6:45am for first seating Guests & 8:00am for second seating Guests), you will leave the ship, pass through U.S. Customs and board the motor coach.  I usually estimate around 30 minutes to disembark. 
    I hope I've given you a good idea of what to expect, Karen!  If you think of other questions, please let me know!
    Best wishes for a magical vacation!
