    We've scheduled our third Disney cruise for May 2019. I have a question about Port adventures booked through DCL...What happens if a port adventure booked through Disney is running late? Will the ship wait on us or leave? How would they handle this?

    Ahoy, Anna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your third voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line will be here before you know it! Since you're already a Castaway Club Member, you know that there's something for everyone while sailing with Disney! One of my favorite parts about sailing aboard a Disney Cruise is having the opportunity to visit exotic ports of call while being surrounded by pixie dust.

    Booking exciting Port Adventures through Disney Cruise Line is my family's favorite way to explore each beautiful destination! If your excursion is running late, so long as you booked your Port Adventure through Disney Cruise Line (and not with an independent vendor), the ship will wait for your group to return onboard before leaving to set sail to the next port of call. If, for some reason, your excursion is running SUPER late and the ship must leave port, Disney Cruise Line will actually arrange complimentary transportation for you to the next port of call! I can't express how worry-free we feel booking our Port Adventures through Disney Cruise Line!

    Anna, if you have any future questions or need any recommendations for exciting excursions for you and your family, please don't hesitate to sail back and visit us again! We're here to help you navigate through the planning process!
