    What is the earliest time we can book a return flight home from Orlando Airport on the day we debark from a Disney Cruise at Cape Canaveral? Thank you.

    Ahoy, Lydia, and welcome to planDisney!

    I love that you are deep in the planning phase of your Disney Cruise Line vacation. The time will pass so fast, and before you know it, you will be getting some much-needed vitamin “sea” on your stress-free sailing, so now is the time to plan.

    The recommended flight time guidelines for Ground Transportation from Port Canaveral state that the earliest departure time from Orlando International Airport on debarkation day is 11:25 AM. I know from experience that this time is necessary, and whenever we fly back the same day using the time noted, we will always arrive at the airport with plenty of time to settle in before our flight. 

    Please be sure to return and let us know if you have additional questions along the way. 

    Have the most magical time onboard!
