    Hi, can you tell me what time the DCL busses start departing from Port Canaveral to the WDW hotels? I heard that it was now 9am, but wasn't able to confirm this. I know in the past they left as soon as they filled them up! Thanks!

    Ahoy Sarah –
    Thanks for stopping by to visit with us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Sounds like you are working on the plans for a Land and Sea Vacation, and there is nothing better than a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort after a luxurious sailing on Disney Cruise Line. A month ago, my pirate crew had the pleasure of cruising on the Disney Fantasy followed by a stay at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. We booked transfers and were surprised to get a note in our cabin the night prior to debarkation notifying us that we needed to disembark the ship no later than 8:30AM in order to make our bus to the Beach Club. The note further instructed us that the bus would leave promptly at 9:00AM. This was different from our last trip where there was continuous bus service to the Walt Disney World Resort. The motor coaches do leave on time, and we witnessed a family who had missed their departure to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. In order to reach their destination, they were instructed to ride with us on the Beach Club motor coach and then transfer to Disney Springs and then to Saratoga (missing your bus is not a fun way to end your cruise). Schedules and policies change frequently, and debarkation instructions will have the latest updates so check for them in your stateroom at the appointed time. Sarah, I hope this helps with your planning, and if you need further assistance, please come and see us again!
