    Love all the info on the panel! When we cruise in Dec 2014, at approximately what time of the day will the ship dock at the ports? and how many hours can we expect to be at each port ? Our ports are St. Marten, San Juan and Castaway Cay! So excited!!!!!

    Welcome back, Jamie! I'm so glad our answers have helped so far as you've been planning this exciting cruise for your family! It sounds like you must be sailing on the Disney Fantasy on either December 6th or December 20th, 2014. This is the Fantasy's itinerary C, including port stops at St. Maarten, San Juan and Castaway Cay! What a great itinerary! Plus, you'll enjoy three fabulous days at sea, which are the perfect time to really take part in all that the ship has to offer!

    You can view the Fantasy's Itineraries for the Eastern Caribbean on Disney Cruise Line's website. Just scroll down and click on Itinerary C and you'll be able to see the approximate Guest ashore and Guest Onboard times for each port. Though these are always subject to change it looks like the following will be your times in port for that sailing:

    St. Maarten: 8:00 a.m. - 6:45 p.m.
    San Juan: 7:45 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.
    Castaway Cay: 9:30 a.m. - 4:45

    You'll have most of the day to explore and enjoy each of those ports. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the exciting Port Adventures that Disney offers in each port! While guests can certainly explore the port on their own, I always recommend choosing one of Disney's adventures as they take care of all of the details, create a memorable experience incorporating quite a bit of local culture and flavor, and also ensure that you are back to the ship with plenty of time. No one wants to miss the last all aboard call and not make it back on the ship!

    I hope that information helps as you continue planning, Jamie. I look forward to seeing you back with more questions before you set sail!
