    Will be taking Disney Dream Cruise next January (2018), for the Discover Atlantis Tour (N05), what is the shuttle departure time? It says the activity probably takes 2-4 hours. So want to check if it is possible to get back on the cruise around 1pm. Thanks

    Hi Nan!

    I'm thrilled to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love visiting Atlantis Paradise Island during our Disney Cruise Line cruises to the Bahamas. You will be amazed at all the sea life swimming in the aquariums throughout the Resort.

    As soon as your cruise is paid in full and your advance booking window opens, you'll be able to start booking Port Adventures! Once you select the Discover Atlantis Tour during your Online Check-in, you will be able to view the departure times available for the excursion and choose one that fits your family's schedule best! While on the Port Adventure, you will have a guided tour lasting around 45 minutes and then be able to enjoy exploring the beautiful Resort on your own! When you're finished exploring, shuttles depart from a designated pick-up spot at Atlantis every 30 minutes for the 15-25 minute trip back to the Disney Dream. You have the flexibility to choose your return time! Depending on when your Port Adventure begins, you should be able to make it back onboard around 1:00 p.m.

    Nan, it was a pleasure having the opportunity to answer another wonderful question from you! Please visit us again as you continue preparing for your DREAM-y voyage next January!
