    We are cruising in April. Going to MCO after disembark, however our flight doesn't leave till 3:40. Is there anything to keep kids entertained at the airport? Renting a car is not an option. Tanks

    Great to see you on the panel site, Leah -

    Thank you very much for visiting!  I've had that same picture in my mind after every cruise… what to do with the kids' energies while waiting for the flight home.  Personally, I prefer to hang out at the airport  and not have to worry about the mad dash to make a flight.  With my husband and kids in tow, we leisurely get to the airport and check in after disembarkation.  From previous trips, we usually get to MCO between 10 and 11 am. Since we're never in a hurry to come home to California from a Disney Cruise, everyone seems to operate on slow motion that day.  

    That'll give you a lot of time for lunch at the airport. There's a big Disney Store there just in case you forget any souvenirs.  And there's WiFi too… so you can update your posts and upload some pictures to share with your family. The MCO security gates almost always have a waiting line, so allow enough time there too.

    I hope that this helps.  Have a wonderful time on your upcoming magical cruise!
