    Hello, What is the earliest time that my family can "board" the Dream? I find that we registered online and have a 1:30 time but not sure. How can we get on the Dream early? Thanks! Happy Mardi Gras!

    Hi, Janis!

    Congratulations on your upcoming cruise aboard the Disney Dream -- she's a beauty!  And once you are on board, you'll never want to leave!

    At Port Canaveral, check-in registration usually begins at 10:30 a.m. and embarkation begins at 1:00 p.m.  However, I have known boarding to begin as early as noon -- it really depends on how quickly the crew can ready the ship after the last guests have disembarked.  All guests must board the ship no later than 4:00 p.m.

    It usually does help to be of the first to get to the terminal -- especially if you've checked in online, too. The early bird gets the worm! I hope this helps you plan.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
