    Hi, I am going to embarking on my first cruise ever. I wanted to know I`m traveling with my dd and 2 y.o. How long can you stay on the ship before we would have to leave the ship? Flight not till 6. Cant decide if we should stay at wdw resort. Thanks

    Ahoy Dana!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel and congratulations on your first magical sailing onboard Disney Cruise Line! 
    All Guests must be off the ship between 9:00 and 9:30am so the crew can prepare for the next cruise passengers.  Once you disembark the ship, it will take around 30 minutes to locate your luggage and pass through U.S. Customs.  The ride to the airport is about an hour which is about the same time it takes to get over to the Walt Disney World Resort.  If you decide to book a room for the day, you won't have too long at the resort because the Magical Express buses leave for the airport around three hours before your flight time.  It may make more sense to book a room at the hotel that is connected to the airport, the Hyatt.  This way you will be close by and can walk to the terminal and not have to depend on any other transportation. 
    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel, Dana!  If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Have a wonderful day!
