    We are sailing on the Magic in March 2012 and are so excited! I am wondering about what time we can board the ship and if we will be able to eat lunch? I know we will all be hungry since we have an early flight that morning.

    Ahoy Kelly!

    I'm so excited for you!  The Magic is a wonderful ship that I really love.  I've been on it with my family three times and each time has been extraordinary.

    The terminal opens between 11:00am and 11:30am. They start checking in at 1:00pm. I will tell you that I have checked in earlier, but really, it depends on when US Customs clears the ship for a new sailing. You have to be on the ship no later than 3:40 to 4:00 pm. The ship will depart at 5:00pm.  You will definitely be having a fabulous buffet lunch as soon as you get on the ship.  Any crew member can direct you to the restaurant.  It's a good thing you'll be hungry too!  It's all really delicious and never ending!

    I hope you have a magical sailing.  Please let me know if you have any other questions; I'm really happy to help my fellow cruisers.  Bon voyage!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
