PAT of 11-11:30...what time to leave WDW
:confused3 I know, I know, this is my 3rd Disney Cruise :confused3

But, what time should we leave :drive: POR at the World and head over to Port? This is my Mom's and my DD's (16) 1st Cruise and I want to get there, Drop baggage off to porters, get parked in the parking garage (shade :cool2:) , we have 2 cars... 5 of us... lol...hopefully 3rd floor (Is that right?? for the ramp to terminal?, Get in line and get inside.

Also, I know I should know this, but what time does boarding start?? 12:00?? I really hope to get Pixie Dust and get Boarding Group 3 again...have had that the last 2 cruises..... Just want to get on ship, eat at Cabanas and head to AquaDuck!!!! :cheer2::cool1:

It's about an hour's drive from WDW to P C, so around 10:00 am is good.

We usually leave around 9:00-9:15, (always paranoid :scared1: about traffic problems or flat tires). We try to get there around 10:30 drop off luggage, park the car near the ramp (believe it's the 2nd floor) walk across the ramp & into the terminal, check in & wait to board. Our last couple of cruises the terminal opened somewhere between 10:45 & 11:00. Have a good cruise..:)

Be sure to register for your port arrival Time (PAT). You are able to get your PAT

Your boarding number is tied to your PAT.

It's a little over an hour to the port from WDW. The Parking garage usually opens between 10:45 -11:00. The ship starts boarding around 11:45 with Concierge and Platinum boarding first.

Thanks....I have already checked in online. I just for the life of me could not remember what time we got on the ship...LOL

We have a PAT of 11-11:30, so we figured leave POR around 9:15-9:30 and head over to Port, Park and wait......getting so excited!!:cool1:
