    I am staying at The Boardwalk Villas prior to going on a Disney cruise, I would like to know approximately the DCL bus pickup time and where it picks up from. Thank you, E

    Ahoy, Edythe! 

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! A Land and Sea adventure awaits you this September, and I'm sure you can't wait for this magical vacation to be underway. And it will be smooth sailing to Port Canaveral since you've reserved ground transportation with Disney Cruise Line. There's no better feeling when you first spot your Disney Cruise ship upon arrival, especially since it's always the prettiest vessel in port! 

    Edythe, on the night before your cruise departure, a detailed letter with directions for the following morning will be delivered to your studio or villa. You'll find your exact pick-up time and location included in this letter along with a pick-up time for your luggage, which is typically 8:00 a.m. You do not need to present for your luggage to be collected, but you will want to make sure all your bags are tagged with the Disney Cruise Line tags that you'll receive in the mail. Scheduling is usually done a few days before each sailing, so Disney Cruise Line adjusts their routes depending on where Guests are staying pre-cruise. Pick-up times can range from mid-to-late morning to early afternoon and will be in the lobby of Disney's BoardWalk Inn. A Disney Cruise Line representative will be there with a sign ready to check you in. 

    Thank you for stopping by to visit us again, Edythe! Your Walt Disney World Resort stay and Halloween on the High Seas sailing will be hEAR before you know it! As you continue to plan, please let us know if we can assist you with any other questions.

    Have a magical day!
