    Hello, I just want to be clear on what time I can arrive at the parking garage at Port Canaveral. I have a port arrival time of 12-12:15 is this the time that i can actuall get in the terminal Can I arrive earlier to get into theparking garage. Thanks!

    Anchors aweigh, Tammi! 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney with your question. We are a group of Disney Cruise Line fans who love to “go the distance” and track down the answers for you. In just a few weeks, you’ll cross the bridge to Port Canaveral and catch a glimpse of your Disney ship! I have a smile on my face just thinking about it. Let’s head to the fast lane and discuss driving to the port. 

    The parking garage opens at approximately 10:30 a.m. You can drop off your luggage before your Port Arrival Time, but you cannot enter the terminal and complete check-in until noon. It usually takes my family forty-five minutes to a half hour to drop off our bags, park, and make our way to the entrance.

    The parking garage is conveniently located across the street from the terminal. Before you enter the garage, you’ll be directed to a luggage drop-off location. Next, you’ll head to the parking garage to pay for parking. Rates are based on the length of your cruise. You can find the latest cost by visiting the “Arrival Information” section on the Disney Cruise Line website. 

    All that’s left is to cross the street or walk across the bridge and start your vacation! Keep an eye on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for the Silver Anniversary at Sea entertainment. Have your cameras ready to capture Captains Mickey and Minnie in their shimmery new outfits; there’s also a reception and a night of fireworks to mark the occasion. Thank you for stopping by planDisney. Our roadway is always open, and we would love to hear from you again. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
