    What time do you get off the ship on your last day?? I'm setting up transportation but can't figure this out.

    Ahoy, Laura!

    Thank you for cruising over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question. Disembarkation morning is definitely bittersweet because you will be leaving your cruise ship home and transitioning back to land after your magical journey. Even though this is my least favorite part of my Disney Cruise Line vacation, I'm always so impressed with the ease of disembarking a Disney ship. The time Guests disembark can vary, so I'm happy to provide you with some information about the return to your departure port. 

    The first option to leave the ship on your final morning is "Express Walk-Off." This is for Guests who want to be off first and carry their own luggage with them. This is typically around 7:00 to 7:30 a.m. or once the ship is cleared. I always plan about 30 minutes to go through U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Once you've presented your party, proof of citizenship and declaration form, you'll be ready to head out to find your ground transportation. 

    Your second option is to enjoy your final breakfast with your wonderful dining team in main dining restaurant you dined in the previous night. We never miss this opportunity to say "Sea Ya' Real Soon" to our fabulous servers and get a final picture. If you are assigned main seating dining during your cruise, you'll eat around 6:45 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. if you are scheduled for second seating. Breakfast is usually very quick around 30 minutes or so and then you'll be ready to proceed to the gangway to collect your luggage. You'll want to plan 5 to 10 minutes to collect your luggage in the terminal before you head over to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection line. And just so you know, all Guests are asked to be out of their staterooms by 8:00 a.m. and off the ship around 9:15 a.m. 

    I hope my answer is helpful, Laura! 

    Have a magical time!
