    What should we expect on return day? What is the latest for breakfast and disembarking. Thanks!

    Ahoy, Elizabeth!

    It is wonderful to hear from you again with another excellent question about your upcoming Disney Cruise! On your sailing, you'll find debarkation to be smooth and seamless just like the embarkation process. The night prior to your arrival, you'll receive some helpful information in your stateroom. I suggest reading over this carefully and keeping it handy until you have completed the debarkation process. There will also be a video playing on your stateroom TV with important information as well. 

    Breakfast will be served according to your assigned dining seating time during your cruise in the restaurant you dined on the last night. If you are a Main Seating Guest, you'll dine around 6:45 a.m. while Second Seating Guests dine around 8:00 a.m. My family loves this opportunity to enjoy one last meal with our dining servers. After breakfast, you'll be able to disembark with your day bags. All Guests are asked to be off the ship around 9:15 a.m. 

    Once you are off the ship, you'll collect your luggage and proceed through U.S. Customs and Border Protection with your proof of citizenship and U.S. Customs Declaration Form. I always estimate about 30 minutes from the time you leave the ship to your transportation. Porters are available to assist you with your luggage if you need any help. 

    Debarkation is my least favorite part of a Disney Cruise vacation, Elizabeth. We always visit the Disney Vacation Planning Center while aboard to book our next voyage, which makes it a whole lot easier to leave! 

    Thank you for continuing to use the Disney Parks Moms Panel and have a magical day!
