    We are going to be taking our first family cruise in March! We are going to be on the Disney Dream! Is there a suggested time to arrive at the Port the morning of departure?

    Hey Todd!

    I'm so excited for you and your family!  You are in for the time of your life.  The Disney Dream is a stunning ship, and you'll be amazed at all there is to see and enjoy.  I promise that you'll be planning your next Disney cruise even before you're first one is over!

    The terminal opens between 11:00am and 11:30am. They start checking Guests in at 1:00pm. I will tell you that I have checked in earlier, but really, it depends on when US Customs clears the ship for a new sailing. You have to be on the ship no later than 3:40 to 4:00 pm. The ship will depart at 5:00pm. 

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.  Bon voyage Todd!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
