    Hi, this is our first time going on DCL but we are DVC members. What is the latest you can board? Our flight gets into Orlando around 12:30pm and we are taking Disney transportation. Thanks for your help!

    Hi, Aimee!

    Congratulations on your upcoming first cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line (DCL).  We actually joined Disney Vacation Club (DVC) when we were on our first Disney cruise. The cruise absolutely "sealed the deal" for us as a family knowing that we wanted to invest in future Disney vacations.

    DCL suggests that the latest Orlando International Airport flight arrival on Embarkation Day is 1:45 p.m.  (The earliest flight departure on Debarkation Day is 12:30 p.m.)  So, your 12:30p.m. arrival time and ground transportation should work out fine on the day you sail. All guests have to be on board by 3:45 p.m.

    I hope that helps you plan. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
