    We are taking the Disney Cruise from Southampton England in September and are checking out port activities. A few have durations that end quite close to ship departure time and I am concerned what happens if the bus is running late! Any experience with t

    Hello again, John! My pals and I are happy to see you sail back to us at planDisney. 

    We are so happy to be involved in your planning process. It's a big part of the fun! If you are booking a Port Adventure directly through Disney Cruise Line, there is no need to worry about the timing details. They will ensure that your adventure will end back at the cruise ship before it is time to leave the port. I personally haven't experienced a Port Adventure that ran late, but I did witness a Port Adventure group return close to the all-aboard time at one port of call last year. The Crew Members will be in contact with the Port Adventure tour operators to make sure that everything runs smoothly. They will even wait at the port if necessary. That's a huge perk of scheduling a Port Adventure! You get to leave the transportation and planning of your excursion to Disney Cruise Line. 

    Your itinerary sounds amazing and I know that you'll be making incredible memories both at sea and while in port. When you aren't galavanting around Europe,  be sure to check out the fun activities and wonderful entertainment that the Crew Members will provide onboard. Once you are on the ship, you'll be able to view the Daily Activity Schedule within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app

    My family loves to take part in trivia, crafts, game shows, and more. If you see something listed that looks interesting to you, be sure to check it out early on in the cruise! It may be offered again during your voyage and you'll be able to enjoy it another time. The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app even has a great feature to keep you on time for the activities you don't want to miss. If you click the heart icon next to the activity listing within the app, a reminder notification will be sent when it's time for the fun to begin.

    Please sail back if you have more questions. It's a pleasure to help!

    Happy Planning,
