    My husband and I are on the Dream dep 9/28 from PC. We will be taking DCL tsp from WDW and then back to MCO. I understand that we can keep all of our luggage if we choose the final night; but is this an issue if we take DCL tsp back to MCO?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel site, Jennifer - 

    It's so convenient to use the Disney Cruise Line ground transportation. You'll be well taken cared of as you are whisked to and from the port.

    Other than the extra weight and navigating your way down the gangway and through exit lines, I'm sure you'll be just fine should you decide to hand carry all your luggage from the ship. Most guests who are trying to catch an early flight will usually be prepared to do this. If you are doing just that, just be ready with your luggage by the gangway early, so that you can get off sooner than later. The ship will usually be cleared by customs at around 7:30 on disembarkation morning. Hopefully, you can still enjoy breakfast before that time at either Cabanas or your assigned restaurant for breakfast.

    Since you are taking Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation from the port to the MCO airport, you'll just need to make your way (with all your luggage) down to the motor coach loading/unloading area. One of the cast members will guide you to the next motor coach that will be departing for MCO. The driver will load your luggage onto the same motor coach that you are boarding. There might be some waiting time as the bus is loaded, so remember to factor that in to your commute time.

    I hope this helps, Jennifer. Please do let us know if you have any additional questions. We're always glad to help!

    Have a great day!
