    We will be taking Disney transportation from WDW resort to the port. With not knowing what time we will be picked up, what happens if we arrive at the port later than our scheduled port arrival time?

    Welcome aboard, Victoria! My family and I take advantage of Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers each time we sail. Letting Mickey and his crew do the planning and driving makes our transition from land to sea and back again so seamless and easy! I'm sure you'll find the same!

    Since you've pre-booked ground transfers through Disney Cruise Line, you don't need to worry about your Port Arrival Time. When you choose from the available time options during your online check-in, just choose one at 1:00 or later, and you'll be all set. Even if your motor coach doesn't get you to the port until after your Port Arrival Time, Disney knows that you'll be there and they'll know you're being transported by their motor coach, so no need to worry. Once you arrive at Port Canaveral, you'll simply make your way through security and up the escalator to check in at the desks. Most likely, by that point, you'll be able to head right onto the ship, as the early rush will have already gone through.

    Have so much fun as you explore the Walt Disney World parks and resorts before setting sail with Disney Cruise Line! You'll be able to then relax and enjoy everything Disney has to offer at sea! It's the best of both worlds!
    Happy planning, Victoria!
