Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
We are trying to plan our port adventures and are not sure what times the boat docks and what time we need to be back on the ship before it sails to our next destination. We are on the 'disney wonder 2014 5 night west carib cruise.

- Welcome aboard, Antonio! Sailing with Disney Cruise Line is a great way to travel, and when you book your Port Adventures through Disney, you don't need to worry about all ashore or all aboard times because they take care of making sure you're where you need to be. It's the easiest, most relaxing way to venture out into the ports of call!
As you browse the different Port Adventures with Disney when you're logged into your reservation and you're within your booking window (75 days prior to sailing for first time cruisers with Disney), you'll be able to see the adventure departure times from which you can choose. These are actually the meeting times when you meet with the group and guides. These meeting locations are onboard the ship, so you may find that for some of the early adventures, you're actually meeting your group before the official Guest Ashore time. So, it's much more important to pay attention to the meeting times than the ship's Guest Ashore and Guest Onboard times.
However, if you'd like to view the approximate Guest Ashore and Guest Onboard times, log into your reservation and click "Reservation Summary" and then "Itinerary", where you'll see the times listed for each port of call. You didn't mention which date you'll be sailing, and as the five-night sailings have different itineraries and times, I don't want to give you the wrong information.
I hope that helps as you continue to plan, Antonio! Let me know if you have other questions before you set sail!
