    When do we find out when to embark in San Diego and when we will disembark in Vancouver?

    Ahoy, Shannon!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I've been lucky enough to visit both San Diego and Vancouver, and they are both spectacular cites! I hope you are planning to spend time exploring both places in May! You are definitely in for a real treat when you sail up the picturesque Pacific Coast. You'll need to be aboard your California Coast Cruise on the Disney Wonder by 4:00 p.m. When you check-in online in the "My Disney Cruise" section of the website, you'll be able to pick a Port Arrival Time. Typically these 30-minute check-in windows are from mid-morning until the scheduled "All Aboard" time. Once you are checked-in at the port, you'll receive a boarding number that will be called out over the loud speaker when it's time to start your magical journey on the high seas! The first group boards the ship around 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. When it's time to say "Sea Ya Real Soon," you'll take your new vacation memories and disembark the ship around 8:00 a.m.(sometimes a bit earlier). Express Walk-Off can begin as early as 7:00 a.m. or once the ship is cleared by officials, but this does require you to take your luggage off the ship. Disembarkation lasts around two hours with all Guests off the ship by 9:30 a.m. All Guests are asked to be out of their staterooms by 8:00 a.m. A letter explaining the final morning procedures including breakfast options will be left in your stateroom on the last evening.
    Thank you stopping by, Shannon!
    Have a magical day!
