    Hi Disney Moms............i just did my online check in for my cruise in May...I picked the 11:30-12:00 check in time. my ? is will the magical express bus pick us up early enough from BLT to get us there before our check in time?

    Welcome aboard, Mary! So, you've completed online check-in! That means you are getting closer and closer to your sailing with Disney! I bet you are very excited!

    Be sure to make reservations for Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation if you haven't already. This is separate than the Magical Express. There is an additional cost of $35 per person each way for this transportation to the port. Call Disney Cruise Line if you need to add this to your reservation.

    The night before you set sail, you will receive information in your stateroom letting you know when and where to have your bags ready the next morning, as well as your meeting spot to board the ground transportation. You will certainly get there in enough time to board. The assigned check-in time at the port is not strict. It's more of a way for them to ensure that guests' arrivals are spread out throughout the morning so as not to have everyone show up at the same time. If you arrive before 11:30, you can still check in. If you arrive later, you can still check in. Once you do so, have a seat and wait for the boarding numbers to be called, pose for a picture with Mickey or Minnie, then head onto the ship with a very magical welcome for your family as you enter the Atrium Lobby!

    Have fun with the final planning for your cruise, Mary. Please let me know if you have any other questions before you set sail!
