    Hi. doing DTD on last day. What time does DQ and the shops open? Also what time should we leave DTD to get to Port C by 3pm. We need to take rental back to airport and catch shuttle to the port. Would 1pm be a good time to leave? Thanks

    Hi, Kerri!  DisneyQuest usually opens at 11:30 AM, and most of the shops in Downtown Disney open at 9:30 AM.  You'll find guest relations generally open around 8:30, and the restaurants around 9:00 AM. 

    From Orlando International Airport, Port Canaveral is about 45 minutes away.  If you have to leave Downtown Disney to be at Port Canaveral by 3:00 PM, you should be on a shuttle no later than 2:00 PM (and I'd probably say 1:30 to be safe).  Give yourself at least 45 minutes to get from Downtown Disney to the airport.  It should only be about a 30 minute trip, but depending on the day and the traffic, give a little leeway.

    Okay, so essentially, if it was up to me doing the trip, I would say leave Downtown Disney no later than 12:30 - 12:45.

    I hope that helps!
