    Hello, I have a question regarding the last day of the cruise. When do we actually get off the ship? We will be taking the magical express to WDW to our resort. I was wondering if anyone could give me a ballpark esp TOA to our resort?

    Ahoy, Mary!

    Just like all good things, every Disney Cruise has to come to an end. I'll admit, I've shed a few tears each time we've had to disembark at the end of a voyage on Disney Cruise Line! Lucky you, you've planned my favorite kind of getaway, a Land and Sea adventure! The magic will continue as you head to Walt Disney World Resort to continue your vacation.

    On the last morning onboard, Guests will be assigned a seating time for breakfast. Those with main dinner seating will eat around 6:45-7:00, and those with second seating will dine around 8:00-8:15. You'll eat in the same restaurant where you were assigned for dinner the evening before, and your dining room service team that's been rotating with you throughout your cruise will be there for your final breakfast! We always love having a chance to say goodbye to our dining team and thank them for their excellent service.

    All Guests are asked to clear their staterooms by 8:00a.m., and must disembark by 9:00a.m. so that Cast Members and Crew can begin preparations for the next group of cruisers to step onboard. Guests may choose to skip breakfast and walk off the ship once the announcement is made that it's clear to disembark, and that usually happens around 7:30 - 8:00a.m.

    Once you disembark, it's an easy transition through customs and out the doors to catch the Magical Express! You can expect to arrive at your resort anytime between 10:00a.m. and noon, depending on what time you step off the ship. The drive takes about an hour, and your bus may drop guests off at other resorts before arriving at yours. We've had second seating on our past two cruises, and arrived at our resort around 11:30.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if we can answer any more questions for you as you plan your magical "surf and turf" vacation! - Diane W.
