    What time does boarding start on the Disney Dream ? Also are you able to go early and check in?

    Ahoy, Gen!

    Check in begins at the Port Canaveral Terminal for Disney Cruise Line at 10:30 a.m. with the first group usually boarding at 1 p.m.  However, the terminal is quite a fun place to hang out with soft furniture, a small coffee shop, cartoons for the kiddos and lots of picture-making opportunities. The characters usually make their way out into the terminal, too, and there's a wonderful scale model of a ship. Plus, you can see the real ship from the windows!

    I always tell my friends and family to try to check in as early as possible in order to get an early boarding time and to experience all the fun going on in the terminal. You never know...I've also boarded way before the expected time! The sooner you get on that ship, the more fun you'll have!

    The Disney Dream is a beauty, and you're going to think you're living a dream as you sail! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
