    What time do we need to disembark from Disney Magic in Port Canaveral and about how long would it take to collect our bags? I need to tell the car service and can't find this info anywhere!

    Hey Sharon!

    Welcome to the Moms Panel! 

    Although disembarking is my least favorite part of cruising,  Disney Cruise Line does this better than any other cruise line I have sailed on previously. Since it is such a smooth transition back from sea to land it still leaves you in your relaxed cruise mode!

    On the last morning of your cruise, you will have two options. You can eat breakfast in the dining room you dined in the night before with your dining servers or go up to Topsiders on Deck 11 from 6:30-8:00am.  If you have main seating, your breakfast in the dining room is scheduled for 6:45am and second at 8:00am.  The time you have breakfast will impact your departure so knowing this information should help you estimate your time for the car service.

    Disembarkation usually begins around 7:45am and will last about two hours. If you try to disembark right at 7:45, you may have the longest wait time to get off, go through customs and collect your luggage. I have done this before and although the wait was a little longer, we were still done in about 30 minutes. 

    I hope you have a fantastic time sailing on the Magic!

    Bon Voyage!
