    Hi. We are going on our 1st Disney cruise on Jun 30 (Disney Magic, sailing from Barcelona). The cruise finishes on Jul 7th. What I want to know is when does the ship arrives and what time do we need to leave the ship? What's the checkout process?

    Hi Wael!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You have an amazing adventure awaiting you this summer aboard the Disney Magic.  My family did this same itinerary a couple years ago and it still one of my favorites!  Being able to have the wonderful amenities Disney Cruise Line offers along with beautiful sights and amazing history and culture – it’s the way to do it!  

    Sadly, though…it will come to an end.  That is definitely the worst part of the week, but when it does end, you will have seen so much that you will have many memories to take with you.  When the beautiful Magic arrives back in port on your debarkation day, you will be served breakfast and be asked to leave the ship by approx. 9AM so preparations for Guests arriving that afternoon can begin.

    The day prior you will receive some character-coded luggage tags to affix to any luggage pieces that you want your stateroom hosts to pick up and those pieces can then be collected once you exit the ship.  You will also find out when and where your seated breakfast will be the following morning.  On debarkation morning, you will attend your scheduled seated breakfast or you can opt for a buffet breakfast in Cabanas. After breakfast you will wait for your luggage tag character to be called informing you that you can disembark the ship.  You will not need to officially “check out” but will need to have your Key to the World card handy for exiting the ship.

    My favorite thing to cure the “end of vacation blues” is to visit the onboard Vacation Planning Desk and book my next adventure at sea!  That way it is never “goodbye”, but rather “See ya real soon!”

    Happy Sailing!
