    Hi! We are Florida residents sailing out of Port of Miami, can you tell me the best option for parking, looking for most convenient options. Also, how much time should we expect it to take from parking to boarding? Thank you!

    Welcome aboard, Pamela! Later this month, you'll be enjoying the most magical adventure when you head out to sea with Disney Cruise Line!

    I love that you asked for the most convenient option for parking. As you might imagine, there are all sorts of parking options by various outside companies around each port of call, however that can also involve some added hassle. No one wants extra stress when they're getting ready to head out to sea, or returning from a magical and relaxing voyage! So, I highly recommend that you take advantage of the on-site parking right at the terminal for Disney in Miami. While prices are always subject to change, currently the Miami parking costs $22 per night. You'll be super close to the port terminal for Disney, so it's an easy walk. You can either bring your luggage with you to check when you walk over, or what I find easier is to drive up to the porters and let one of your family members hop out at the terminal and drop off your checked luggage with them. It'll magically meet you onboard in your stateroom later that day. Then, park the car and just walk over to check in with your day bags. It's a quick walk, and then you'll check in at the terminal and wait to board. That may take anywhere from twenty minutes to over an hour depending on what Port Arrival Time you chose, and if you arrive once they've already begun boarding.

    You'll love being parked so close to the terminal when you return from your cruise. While others have to take transportation elsewhere to their off-site cars or to the airport, you'll simply walk to your car and off you go. It couldn't be easier, Pamela!

    Enjoy your magical adventure at sea with Disney!
