    Hi Marcy, (me again)Do you know what time the bus collects us from (Beach Club) to take us to the cruise, Will we have time for a swim or anything before hand, also after the cruise our flight home isn't until 6pm, what time will we have to leave the ship.

    Hi again Amanda! Is the cruise still a surprise for your kids? I'm so excited for you to share the news with them! We just returned home from sailing on the Disney Magic last week and this trip was a surprise for our kids too! They were thrilled to say the least!

    The night before you set sail, you'll receive a letter in your room at Beach Club letting you know what time to have your bags ready and what time you'll be picked up to head to the ship. The timing can vary based on how many other guests at your resort are taking Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers, but pick up times at the resorts tend to be from 10:30 - 12:30, so plan a time in there for now. Our luggage last week at our resort was picked up at 8:00 a.m. to head to the ship, but we didn't meet to board the motorcoach until 11:30. So, if you have your swimsuits and maybe a plastic bag in your day bags, there isn't any reason why you can't enjoy a nice swim that morning before you head off to the ship. Just be sure to head back to your room to change before check-out time. You can throw your wet suits in the plastic bag and later take them out to allow them to dry once you get to your ship's stateroom.

    On debarkation morning, you'll need to disembark the ship by around 9:00 a.m. If you have main dining for dinner, you'll be assigned a breakfast time of around 7:00 or if you've had the second dinner seating, breakfast will be at 8:15 on that last day. This is the only day you're assigned a breakfast time, by the way. Cabanas buffet is open until about 8:30, so if you'd prefer to grab a more casual bite there on your own time, you're welcome to do so. Otherwise, your assigned restaurant will be the same one in which you dine the night before. Guests are asked to be out of their staterooms by 8:00, so you'll want to take your day bags with you to breakfast, maybe take a few more pictures around the ship and then head off around 9:00.

    It's been such fun helping you plan! Have a wonderful cruise, Amanda!
