    Just looked at flights for our October cruise. We could arrive at 9:15am on the day the cruise departs. Would this be okay? It is a non stop flight.

    Ahoy Kerri –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are so excited to hear about your October cruise! Kudos to you for planning so well in advance. Having a 9:15AM arrival flight is perfect timing for your cruise.  It takes approximately 45-50 minutes to arrive at Port Canaveral, and if there are no flight delays, your early flight will ensure on time arrival at the port.  Disney Cruise Line recommends that flights coming in on embarkation day arrive no later than 1:45PM. Disney motor coaches usually begin to leave the terminal around 9:00AM if you have planned a Disney Cruise Line transfer.  If you are nervous about flying in on the same day, perhaps you can consider arriving a day earlier. My pirate crew and I usually like to arrive the day before to ensure that there are no flight delays; by staying at the Hyatt Regency Airport Hotel or a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, we can take advantage of the free luggage service to the port. Kerri, thank you so much for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
