    Does parking at the port (port canaveral) ever fill up? Have a later port arrival time since family is coming for the first time and got a 1:30 PAT.

    Hi there, Pedro! Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question. Welcome! 

    I hope I can put your mind at ease! There is ample parking space at Port Canaveral and I do not anticipate any issues with you finding a parking spot as you pull up for your Disney Cruise. Port Arrival Times are staggered throughout the day to prevent long lines from forming as guests check in at the port. This helps cruisers to have a seamless experience as their adventure gets underway!  For more information about the parking at Port Canaveral, such as pricing and location, head to the Port Canaveral departure port detail page and read under the heading "Arrival Information".

    It's wonderful that you'll be sharing the magic of a Disney Cruise with some of your family for the first time! You'll be making memories in no time. Please encourage everyone in your travel party with a smartphone to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. The app will help you stay in touch and plan for the fun you'll have each day as you review the Daily Activity Schedule. This schedule can be accessed once you are onboard the ship.

    While on the ship, save room for some delicious food. My must-have treat onboard is a soft-serve ice cream cone. If you'll be visiting Disney's Castaway Cay, you can try my favorite snack hack. I love to grab a cookie or two from Cookie's BBQ and some soft-serve ice cream to make my own ice cream and cookie sandwich. I hope you enjoy the food and all of the fun to be had in this slice of paradise.

    Have a wonderful cruise, make lots of memories, and sail back to us at planDisney if you have more questions. We'd love to help in any way that we can.

    Bon Voyage,
