    Excited for Northern European cruise on Disney Magic! Do we know the earliest time we could disembark (cruise is supposed to arrive at 7:30 AM)? Also wondering about fastest way to get from cruise terminal to Gatwick airport for 4 people with luggage?

    Ahoy Alison!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Northern European itineraries are AH-MAZING.  I am excited that you have the opportunity to explore this part of the world with Captain Mickey!  I was excited to see the opportunity to return to these beautiful ports with the release of the Summer 2020 itineraries this week.

    One of the best ways to pass the time as the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App countdowns the days until your high seas adventure is planning!  When traveling from Gatwick to the Port of Dover, I recommend utilizing the Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation or booking a private town car.  This would be the fastest way as a train or bus can require transfers and become time consuming (and cumbersome with luggage).  You can contact Disney Cruise Line directly if you would like to add their ground transportation.  If you chose this option, a Disney Cruise Line representative will be near baggage claim to direct you to your transportation.  Based on the size of your travel party and arrival time, this could be a coach or a taxi - but Disney Cruise Line will take care of those details.

    I feel a little Inside Out and like sadness is driving me when I talk about debarkation!  But just like any dream, our favorite vacations do have to end (so we can go on the next one).  There are many factors that can impact your debarkation time.  You may be able to step off as early as 7:30 AM, however it will depend on when the port clears the ship.  Listen for the all clear and check your debarkation day instructions that will be left in your stateroom for details specific to your sailing.

    Enjoy making memories!  Angie
