    Hi Moms! We are taking our 2 kiddies on our first cruise. We have a port arrival time of 10.45 but I have read that the car park doesn't open until 11? We don't want to be late!! Can we park earlier? Thank you.

    Welcome Aboard, Kathryn!

    How thrilled I am to hear that you and your family will be enjoying your very first Disney Cruise! You're in for a real treat as you'll enjoy fun activities and entertainment for all ages. You'll also experience the best, most personalized customer service you can imagine! Our first cruise ever was on a Disney ship, and years later, we've never sailed with anyone else. We've definitely been spoiled by our Disney Cruise Line experience!

    No worries about missing your arrival time - the parking facility is staffed from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for Guests parking their vehicles prior to embarking the ship. The parking lot and garage are paved, gated and under 24-hour surveillance.

    You don't have to feel like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland - you won't be "late, late, for a very important date!" You'll be onboard and enjoying a wonderful buffet lunch with plenty of time to enjoy the ship before the Sail-Away Celebration. Be sure to pack a day bag with cruise documents, medications, swimsuits & sunscreen (if you plan on swimming).

    Please let us know if you have any further questions before you sail - we want to help you have the most magical Disney Cruise Line vacation ever!

    Have a wonderful day! - Diane W.
