    Hello, help please. Cruise Nov flight time changed now it's 10:35 am depart from MCO. Afraid that we won't be able to make the flight, do you think we will have time to depart the cruise, get to MCO by taxi and board on time?? Really worried 

    Hi there, Stacey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation!  I am so excited for you and know you are too, but this flight time change has surely put a minor damper on your excitement and caused some anxiety for you!  I totally understand and hope that I can help you come up with a solution for this!

    For disembarkation, there are a couple options – you can set out your luggage on the night before for your stateroom host to collect and then you pick them up once you disembark the ship.  With this option, you are required to wait until your “group” of assigned luggage tags are called before disembarking.  OR, you can do Express Walk-Off which allows Guests to carry off their own luggage once the ship has been cleared for Guests to disembark.  You will be responsible for getting all of your luggage off on your own and through customs at the port before being able to get transportation to the airport.  Express Walk-off usually begins around 7:30AM with no delays getting back to port or any other delays with getting the ship cleared.

    That being said, there is the chance you can make it – assuming no delays if you carry off your luggage as soon as the ship is cleared and arrange for a private transfer.  But, in all honesty, if it were me, I think I would see if there was a later flight option available.  I would hate to have that added stress at the end of a relaxing vacation!  If there is a later flight, reschedule and use the time to relax and enjoy that final Mickey Waffle!

    Happy Sailing!
