    What time does the Disney Fantasy Return back to Port Canaveral?

    Aloha Rhonda,

    Welcome aboard planDisney and thank you for bringing your question to us! It looks like you are lining up all your plans for a fantastic Disney Cruise Line vacation aboard the Disney Fantasy.

    The Disney Fantasy is currently scheduled to return to Port Canaveral by 7:30 a.m. ET. Guests can typically begin going ashore shortly after that time. All Guests are asked to depart their staterooms by 8:00 a.m. on debarkation day so that the Crew Members can get the ship ready for the next sailing. Just a reminder, this timing is subject to change so keep your ears open for updates from your Cruise Director. Now, how soon you actually disembark the ship can depend on a few things.

    Rhonda, one thing to consider is how you will spend your final morning aboard the ship. You have a couple of options. I prefer one last magical meal by eating a sit-down breakfast on the ship. The time and place of your final day breakfast will depend on your rotational dining schedule, so check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once onboard for the schedule. Or you may choose a quick continental breakfast instead, if available. Again, check the Navigator App for time and location. 

    You should also consider your luggage on debarkation morning. You may opt to place your luggage outside your stateroom on the last night of the cruise between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. for delivery to the ship's terminal the following morning. I typically don’t travel with a large suitcase, so I opt for Express Walk-Off, which allows you to take your luggage to breakfast and debark as soon as the port authorities clear the ship. If you choose this option, may debark the ship as early as 7:30 a.m. when the ship has been cleared by local authorities.

    Now, Rhonda, I have to make sure to tell you not to miss the amazing Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular.  It is one of my favorite Disney Cruise Line shows. You will laugh, you will sing, you will be in awe! I won’t spoil any of the surprises, but I highly recommend it.

    I hope this information helps you plan your morning saying bon voyage to the Disney Fantasy. If you have any other questions as you plan your vacation, please cruise back by and allow us to assist you. 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
