    I am wanting to know an appropriate time to book my return flight home @ Orlando International following our 3 day Bahama cruise. What would be the earliest time we should book our flight on that Sunday? Check out time begins??

    Hi, Robyn!

    Congratulations on booking your Disney Cruise Line (DCL) vacation! To assist you in planning and to provide ample time for travel logistics, DCL recommends the following flight time guidelines:

    • Latest Orlando International Airport Flight Arrival on Embarkation Day — 1:45 p.m.
    • Earliest Flight Departure from the Orlando International Airport on Debarkation Day — 12:30 p.m.

    For your convenience, DCL Ground Transfers are available for purchase to guests who make independent air arrangements. To add transfers to your cruise package, call (800) 951-3532 at least a couple of months prior to the beginning of your vacation, and be prepared to provide your inbound and outbound flight details. Presently, you can estimate that the cost will be $69 per person, round trip.

    On Debarkation Day, you usually can leave the ship as early as 7:30 a.m., and the ship is all clear of passengers by 9 a.m. You will need to allow a little time to claim your luggage in the port terminal and go through US Customs, too. I hope that helps you plan.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
