    We're staying at the Disney's all star sports resort the day before our cruise. What is the disney cruise line schedule? I worry about making it on time for boarding the disney dream ship. How long is the drive to port canaveral?

    Hi there, Mai!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Land and Sea adventure is going to be here before you know it and that is SO exciting!  I know you are eagerly anticipating your adventure at Walt Disney World Resort and onboard the Disney Dream and I anticipate it will be everything you dream it to be AND MORE!!  You will certainly appreciate the relaxing seas after busy days at the theme parks, but rest assured, there will be plenty to do to keep busy while onboard!

    If you have not arranged ground transportation through Disney Cruise Line, I recommend doing so!  They will ensure that you arrive at Port Canaveral on time and will make it such an easy transfer!  Ground transfers can be added by contacting Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 or contacting your travel agent.  Then, on the final night at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will receive information about your transfers – when and where to meet for the approximately one-hour transfer to Port Canaveral.  If you do opt to not use Disney Cruise Line ground transfers and arrange your own transportation to Port Canaveral, you will want to plan to arrive at the time you select as your Port Arrival time when you complete Online Check-In.  Online Check-In can be completely 75-days prior to your voyage by logging into your “My Reservations” account.

    After arriving at Port Canaveral for check-in and registration, you will receive a boarding card with a number on it.  Once Guests begin boarding the ship (typically they begin this around 11:30AM), you will wait until the number on your card is called.  Then, you can step foot onboard for your adventure with Captain Mickey!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable vacation!
