    We have seven people representing three family groups arriving at the same time. We are driving together from about 2 hours away. Our boarding times are currently scheduled an hour apart.; 11:15, 12:15, and 1:15. Would we be able to board together?

    Ahoy, Audra!

    Your vacation aboard the most magical cruise line on the high seas is almost here! Woo hoo! I know you can't wait for a pixie-dusted time with Captain Mickey and his seafaring crew. 

    I'm glad you asked this question about your crew's port arrival times because I want your land to sea transition to be as smooth as possible. Your port arrival time does coordinate with your boarding time, so since you have a two hour range, I suggest you all arrive at the port around noon to 12:30 p.m. since you want to board together. Typically, boarding begins around 11:30 a.m., and groups are called about 5-7 minutes apart so your group should be able to board together sometime after 12:30 p.m. If you decide to arrive around 11:15 a.m., your family members with the 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. port arrival times will most likely be given later boarding times than the 11:15 a.m. group. In that case, you can all just wait to board with the last group. 

    I hope this makes sense, Audra! If you need further help with your cruise questions, please write back! We are always happy to help. 

    Have a magical day!
