    We are sailing on Disney Fantasy 8/5/17. Our cruise information lists port arrival/departure times. Are those the actual port times (time zone)? For example, arrival to Jamaica states 10:30a. Will this be actual time there? Need to know for excursion.

    Ahoy, Keren!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are in for an amazing vacation when you set sail on the Disney Fantasy this August! My family recently returned from a magical voyage to the Western Caribbean and had the time of our lives. I'm sure your crew is so excited about your week on the high seas with Mickey and the gang! An added bonus will be checking out the recent enhancements like Sweet on You!  My mouth is watering just thinking about all those delectable treats offered at a nominal fee. 

    The port times listed on your cruise itinerary are the scheduled all ashore and all aboard times, but these are only estimated times by the cruise line. Disney Cruise Line will do their best to arrive and have the ship cleared by the all ashore times, but there are times when the ship is a little earlier or later than scheduled. Once the ship is secured along the dock and the local authorities have cleared the vessel, you will be able to disembark. The first hour or so of disembarkation can be busy so be sure to plan extra time if you want to be some of the first Guests off the ship.

    Good luck with your plans, Keren! We hope you'll keep the Disney Parks Moms Panel in mind as you think of additional cruise questions.

    Have a magical day!
