    We are going on the Disney Dream cruise and our departure time in May 2013 is approx 3.45, what time can we board the ship? I have been told that you can board early and have lunch etc

    Hello Helen,

    The terminal opens between 11:00am and 11:30am. They start checking in at 1:00pm. I will tell you that I have checked in earlier, but really, it depends on when US Customs clears the ship for a new sailing.  In reference to luggage, you can check it in with a baggage handler when you arrive at the terminal. The next time you see it will be by your stateroom door. I hope this helps you plan. It's best to get there early so you can get your picture taken with Captain Mickey, and enjoy a fabulous buffet lunch as soon as you arrive onboard the beautiful Disney Dream! Bon voyage Helen!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
