    We leave on the Dream in Oct. Coming in the night before& staying @Hyatt at MCO. What is the earliest time the buses leave for the port. Have purchased transfer thru cruise line?

    Hey, Jennifer!

    I can't wait for you to have your turn to sail on the Disney Dream -- what a spectacular ship!

    The ground transfers for Disney Cruise Line (DCL) run out of the Welcome Center for Disney's Magical Express (DME) -- ground level, side B.  They don't publish the bus schedules, but you usually can count on the first ones leaving around 10 a.m.  The port terminal opens around 10:30 a.m., and of course, they want to make sure the buses are somewhat full before they send them on their way.

    If I were you, I would make sure you inform the front desk at the Hyatt Regency when you check in that you purchased a ground transfer through DCL.  I have heard that they will handle luggage for you to the DME Welcome Center -- potentially freeing you up from your bags until you see them in your stateroom.  In addition, the front desk can communicate with the DME Welcome Center and can provide you with more up-to-date information when you check in. I hope that helps!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
