    Husband and I are taking our 1st Disney cruise for Daughter 10th birthday with grandparents (All over 60). What is the best flight time to get back to MCO? 11:55 or 2:03. Open to all suggestions

    Hello Kristen,

    Thanks for sailing by!  How exciting that you have a multi-generational Disney Cruise Line vacation planned!  One of the wonderful things about Disney Cruise Line is that your trip will be filled with activities that are sure to delight everyone in your party.  Disney Cruise Line recommends that you book flights departing Orlando International Airport at 11:30 am or later if you are using Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation.   If you have purchased (or plan to purchase) ground transportation through Disney Cruise Line, you will be able to use onboard airline check-in services on board, allowing you to check into your flight and have your boarding passes printed before departing the ship (for participating airlines.)  This is a great convenience, and one I highly recommend.  You will be able to comfortably make either of your flights, however, since you are traveling with a larger party, and may want to enjoy a quick snack, meal or simply walk around and explore the airport, I would suggest the slightly later flight.  Again, either will work perfectly, so if one is significantly less expensive, I might consider this as well.

    Have a  magical voyage!
