    Nancy, Thnx so much for your previous help! Our flight @ MCO isn't until 4pm-12/23. How quickly do we have to leave ship? Any suggest. of what we can do to occupy our time so we're not @ the arprt for so many hours? We have Disney Transp. Thanks again!

    Hi Connie!
    You are so welcome! On the morning of disembarkation, all Guests are usually off the ship by 9:30.  After enjoying a delicious Farewell breakfast in the dining room, there will be a few public areas on the ship that Guests will be allowed to sit and wait for debarkation.  Since you do have DCL transportation, you won't have a lot of control over your day so this is really your only option of occupying some time before heading to the airport.   In my past experiences, the process of departing the ship, collecting luggage, and passing through U.S. Customs usually takes about 30-45 minutes.  Your ride to the airport will be an hour to an hour and a half depending on traffic so it may be 12:00 before you arrive.  There are a few sit-down restaurants such as Chilis in the airport where you can enjoy a long lunch while possibly catching up on some football since it will be a Sunday afternoon.  The airport also has two Disney stores, along with other shops if you need to pick-up any last minute presents.  Hopefully, the time will fly by and you will be boarding your plane in no time! 
    Thanks so much for stopping by again!
    Have a magical day!
