    If we are ending our cruise in Galveston TX, what time that day should I book a flight home from Houston Hobby airport?

    Ahoy there, Jasmine!

    Welcome aboard planDisney! It is so exciting to plan a Disney Cruise Line vacation and we want your trip to be smooth sailing, so let's talk travel arrangements.

    For cruises ending at Galveston in 2024, Disney Cruise Line recommends booking your flight home from George Bush Intercontinental Airport no earlier than 12:30 p.m. (Central Time). In 2025, flights no earlier than 1:30 p.m. are recommended. Of course, Houston Hobby Airport is closer to the Port of Galveston than Houston Intercontinental, providing you with a little wiggle room. Based on my experience, I would not recommend shifting that time by more than 30 minutes because traffic can be unpredictable, as is the ship's arrival back to port.  

    When booking your air travel, you could have Disney Cruise Line make those arrangements for you. There are options for how to book and pay for your flights to make your vacation planning easier. You can call Disney Cruise Line and speak with a reservation specialist to see if the Disney Cruise Line Air Program is right for you or to arrange ground transportation. 

    Remember to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app before your cruise, Jasmine. It is easy to make reservations for many of your cruise activities and to keep track of your schedule once you board the ship.

    I hope this information is helpful and you have a fantastic vacation! Let us know if you have other questions; we are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
