    HI!! ;) Yes I have another question. I just found out our flight leaving Galveston isn't until 3:00pm. I saw that the boat would be docked at 9:30am, do we have to leave then, or can we hang around a while until it's closer to our flight? Thanks so much!

    Ahoy Nichole!
    I'm so happy you're back with another great question!  Disembarkation usually take about an hour and a half so you don't have to leave the ship as soon as it is cleared by U.S. Customs.  But, with that being said, Guests do have to be out of their staterooms at a certain time so they can be prepared for the next cruise. A" Welcome Home" breakfast is served the last morning in the main dining rooms so you will definitely want to take advantage of a delicious meal onboard before leaving.  It is also a great time to say your goodbyes to your amazing dining team!  Many areas of the ship will be closed for cleaning, but you should be able to wait in the public areas until you hear your luggage tag called (tags will be distributed the last day of the cruise).  Luggage is organized by Disney character in the terminal so you will want to wait until your particular character is called so you don't have to wait on your luggage.  Since you have a later flight, I'm thinking you will have a later call time.
    I hope my answer makes sense, Nichole! Please don't hesitate to write back if you need any more assistance! 
    Have a magical day!
