    We are a group of 6 and will be staying at a WDW Resort prior to our cruise on 7/15/16. We have scheduled ground transportation from the resort. What should we be requesting when filing out port arrival time??

    Ahoy, Sharon!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your land and sea adventure with Disney is just around the corner! How exciting! Since you have chosen Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation, you do not have to worry about selecting a port arrival time. The motor coach will deliver your crew curbside after a very comfortable and entertaining ride to the port! The night before your departure a letter will be left in your room with specific instructions for the following morning. Pick-up times vary from sailing to sailing depending on what resort cruise Guests have chosen, but you can typically plan on leaving late morning to early afternoon. I can tell you that luggage pick-up will be around 8:00 a.m. in your resort room. You do not need to be in the room for luggage to be picked up, but you do need to have all of your suitcases tagged by that time. You will not see your luggage until it arrives later on in the afternoon outside your stateroom door, so make sure you pack any important cruise documents, passports/birth certificates and medications in your carry-on luggage. If you plan to swim the first afternoon, you will also want to include bathing suits and sunscreen. 
    Best wishes for a magical vacation filled with unforgettable moments, Sharon! If you have any additional last minute questions, please let us know! Enjoy counting down the final days until your "Dream-y" vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line!
