    We are wondering when you must disembark the ship after it arrives at port on the last day of our cruise? Also, what is the schedule for return buses to Orlando airport? We have a late return flight home, and so we don't need to rush off the ship.

    Hi Melissa,

    I completely understand wanting to take advantage of every possible minute on board one of the Disney Cruise Ships!  The ship is typically cleared by U.S. Customs around 7:30 a.m. and at this time the disembarkation of passengers is permitted.  The dining schedule that morning allows for the process to happen in waves (rather than every person trying to disembark at once).  You could certainly delay your departure, however because the cruise staff must efficiently work to prepare the ship for the next voyage later that day - all guests are asked to disembark the ship by 9:30 a.m.

    Bus service will run continuously until all guests that have purchased transfer service have disembarked.

    Hope this helps!
