    Im making a reservation to be picked up from Port Canaveral after our 3 day Bahamian cruise. What time should I request the limo service to pick is up?

    Welcome aboard, Michelle! It's nice to see another family from Ohio getting excited to set sail with Disney Cruise Line! My family and I just returned home from our cruise last week on the Disney Magic and we had such fun! I'm excited for your family to set sail very soon!

    Guests must be off of the ship by around 9:00 a.m. on debarkation morning, Michelle. There are a few things to know about that last morning that might help you make a decision on when to be picked up. If you've enjoyed the main dinner seating each night, you'll be assigned a last morning breakfast time of about 7:00 a.m. If you have had the second dinner seating each night, your debarkation breakfast time will be about 8:15 a.m. Guests are asked to be out of their staterooms by 8:00, so you'll want to be packed up and ready to go, bringing your day bags with you to breakfast. Once you're done with breakfast, simply head off the ship. Normally, the ship is cleared for disembarkation around 7:30. They begin by allowing guests utilizing express walk-off to disembark first. These are guests who are carrying all of their own luggage off the ship.

    Most guests, however, will leave their checked larger bags outside of their stateroom by 10:00 p.m. the night before to be collected. So, if you do this, when you're ready to disembark the next day after breakfast, simply head off the ship once the announcement is made, collect your luggage in the cruise port terminal area and proceed through customs. In my experience, if you're not in a hurry to disembark, it's much easier to leave the ship around 8:45 or 9, when there are less crowds leaving. Last week it only took us fifteen minutes to disembark, collect our luggage, and get through customs before we boarded our motorcoach to head to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you want a relaxed morning, a pick-up time of 9:30 would work out perfectly.

    I hope those details help, Michelle! Enjoy your cruise!
