What is the earliest that you can board the Magic? What is the latest time that DCL will allow you to board (i.e., and not miss the cruise)? Thanks!

On our 9/10 cruise they started to board at 11:55 am. I think the latest to board is around 4:30 pm (not sure though). We were away from the dock at 5:00 and heading out of PC.

They board as early as 11:30 - but officially I don't think its until sometime after noon - maybe even 1:00.

Guests are required to be on board 1 1/2 hours before sailing - sail is at 5:00, so that means 3:30. People HAVE boarded later - often those using Disney transportation getting in late to the airport. But don't count on showing up at 4:45 and strolling on the ship.
