    What is the earliest you can disembark on the Disney Dream @ Port Canaveral?

    Hi Melanie!

    Your DREAM vacation is coming up so quickly; I know you must be so excited for what awaits you onboard your Halloween on the High Seas adventure at sea!

    On your final morning onboard, you have a couple options for disembarking the ship for the final time.  If you prefer to have your luggage taken off the ship by your stateroom host or hostess, you will be called by groups to disembark and this usually begins around 8:00AM.  Or, you can opt for Express Walk Off and carry off your own luggage usually beginning around 7:30AM.  They request that all Guests disembark by 9:00AM so that the Cast Members can begin getting ready for the new Guests that will be embarking later that day.

    On that final morning, you can visit a specified main dining room for a seated breakfast at a scheduled time.  Your dining room servers will inform you of the restaurant and time that you are scheduled for if you choose to have the seated breakfast.  Cabanas will also be open for a buffet breakfast if you prefer that instead of the seated breakfast.

    Disney Cruise Line ground transfers begin departing Port Canaveral around 9:00AM for Guests that are using transfers to get to either Orlando International Airport or a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  If you are planning on using ground transfers, please ensure you have reserved them at least three days prior to your sail date.

    You know the best way to make that final morning less bittersweet?? Book your NEXT Disney Cruise while onboard!  That way you can take advantage of the onboard booking specials AND you won’t be saying “goodbye”, but rather, “See Ya Real Soon!”

    Happy Sailing!
