    We are hoping to do some morning sightseeing in downtown before boarding our cruise in Vancouver, but, our hotel isn't close to the terminal. Can we bring our luggage early and have it securely "watched" until our port arrival time?

    Ahoy, Mackenzie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Vancouver is one of my all-time favorite ports to set sail out of! You will love being on deck during the Sail-Away Celebration while seaplanes fly overhead. Your Disney Cruise Line adventure will be off to a breathtaking start as you say "Bon Voyage" to beautiful Vancouver!

    I understand your desire to go sightseeing throughout the amazing city of Vancouver. With its restaurants, shopping and natural beauty, Vancouver's culture is so much fun to explore. I called the agents at Disney Cruise Line to ask about your excellent question regarding keeping your luggage at the Cruise Terminal to be watched while you explore the city before your designated Port Arrival Time. Unfortunately, it was confirmed that the Cruise Terminal does not allow storage of luggage before Guests' Port Arrival Times. I'm so sorry, Mackenzie!

    We've stayed at The Fairmont Waterfront hotel before each voyage sailing out of Vancouver with Captain Mickey. The hotel was beautiful, in the heart of the downtown area and within walking distance to the Cruise Terminal. It sounds like your hotel reservations are already set, but I just wanted to offer another option, closer to the Cruise Terminal, just in case you're interested in looking into it!

    Mackenzie, I'm wishing you a fantastic adventure during your upcoming Disney Cruise! Please sail back and visit us again with any future questions!
