    Hi I’m sailing on the Disney Fantasy and will arrive in St. Thomas on the June 20th. I booked a 6 hour excursion which is over at 4 pm. I noticed my on board time for that day is also 4 pm. Does DCL give you enough time to get back on the ship?

    Hi there, Roseann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Caribbean vacation is just around the corner and it will be FANTASTic!  I am so excited for you to experience everything that is a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Get ready for nonstop fun as soon as you embark!

    If you have booked an excursion through Port Adventures, you can be assured that you will be back onboard by the “All Aboard” time.  If you have opted to book an excursion with an vendor outside of Disney Cruise Line, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are back onboard by the “All Aboard” time.  An advantage to booking directly with Port Adventures is that if in the event there was a delay getting back to the ship, you can be guaranteed that they will wait for you!  Unfortunately, that is not always the case if you book with another vendor, so to be on the safe side, it’s always a good idea to book directly with Disney Cruise Line!  They make it so easy for you; not only do they choose the best of the best activities for you to do at the ports of call you will be visiting, but they also take care of every detail so you can just enjoy!  When you embark you will receive tickets with your Port Adventure meeting time and location (an onboard location), so you can plan accordingly.  If you have some time before your meeting time and want to explore or do some shopping near the port, you can disembark to do so, but you just want to ensure you are back onboard and in time for your Port Adventure!

    Wishing you an amazing vacation with many magical memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
