    So I can park anytime I want I just cannot enter the terminal until my allotted time?

    Ho, Ho, Ho, Henry! 

    Very Merrytime Cruises are my favorite! Celebrating the holiday season with Disney Cruise Line is sure to be extra magical. Since your vacation is just around the corner, let’s head over to the fast lane and discuss driving to the port. 

    The parking garage is conveniently located across the street from the terminal and opens at approximately 10:45 a.m. You can drop off your luggage and park before your Port Arrival Time, but you can only enter the terminal and complete check-in at your designated time. It usually takes my family forty-five minutes to a half hour to drop off our bags, park, and make our way to the entrance.

    I hope this information is music… ah, jingle bells… to your ears. When it’s your Port Arrival Time, head to the terminal. You’ll present your Port Arrival Form, enter security, and complete the final check-in process. Make sure you bring with you the citizenship documentation you provided during online check-in. While waiting for your boarding group number to be called, open the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to see all the holly jolly fun planned for your cruise. From visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus to a new holiday deck party, there’s Christmas cheer in the air for the young and young-at-heart. 

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney. Our roadway is always open, and we would love to hear from you again. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
