    Hello! I am on the Disney Fantasy docking in Tortuga Feb 21. It looks like guests can go ashore at 7:30. Assuming the boat clears without issue, can I assume I'll be able to immediately get off or do I need to anticipate a line and a wait?

    Welcome aboard, Molly!

    It looks like your countdown is entering the final days! You must be excited to board the Disney Fantasy and sail the Caribbean! What a fantastic escape from those wintertime blues.

    When your ship receives the all-clear, the captain will announce that Guests may begin disembarking and make their way ashore. Check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to see which gangways are open. Guests traveling on Disney Port Adventures usually use the forward gangway on Deck 1. If you can, use the midship or aft gangway to avoid some of the crowds. It is sometimes easier to take the stairs down instead of trying to squeeze into an elevator. As for lines, they usually move quickly. When going ashore, each adult must carry a photo ID, and every Guest will have their Key to the World Card scanned upon disembarking and returning to the ship. 

    Molly, I hope you have fun exploring Tortola! Whether you’re seeking a quiet beach getaway, a splash with dolphins, or wish to wander about, there is something for everyone. Just make sure your adventure wraps up by all-aboard time because you won’t want to miss out on Pirate Night. Not only do you get to party with the Incredibles and other Supers during your Pixar Day at Sea sailing, but pirates are scheduled to take over for a showstopping buccaneer bash. Save room in your luggage for eye patches, bandanas, or other pirate-y apparel to join in the merrymaking. Two celebrations at sea! Amazing! 

    I hope this information helps you wrap up your planning. I know you’ll have a rootin’ tootin’ good time sailing the crystal-blue Caribbean waters. 

    SEAS the adventure!
