Stay in a hotel.....
Although maybe just sleep on the dock and wait for the boat?
Or go fishing?
Or wait for a space shuttle to launch randomly?
Eat some lobster...?

But staying in a hotel seems the logical option.

First bus is usually a little earlier unless they have changed procedures. The Airport Desk has been opening around 9:00 AM since they stopped doing cruise check-in at the airport. The first bus has started boarding around 9:30-9:40AM with departure around 9:45 AM. For the DVC Member cruise last month, first bus left at 9:40, we got to the port at 10:15, they weren't really ready for check-in yet, so we had to wait a few minutes. They may have adjusted the times since then, but if you are determined to be on that bus, I would probably plan on going to the airport desk around 9:00. They have comfortable waiting areas if the bus ends up leaving at 10:00 or later.

Last week we were on the first bus. It actually left at 920am. We were at the ME area at about 850am. We arrived at the port at about 1010am.

Very quick check in with no one there. You must have an early PAT to get on the ship early though. We had an 11am PAT. We recived a boarding number 4 at check in. It was less than 5 minutes once they announce the family of the day and Boarding number 1.

We on board at 1120am. This was the earliest we have ever experienced.
Just loved the hassle free ease of DCL transfers. It was just DW and I so the expense was worth it.

So happy for you!

We stayed at the Hyatt the night before our cruise last month and it was so easy! Leave your bags in the room at the hotel and they appear outside your cabin on the ship. We left the hotel room about 8:15, got breakfast at Krispy Kream and leisurely walked down to catch the bus. We had the 11-1130 PAT and were at the port around 1045, I think, and that was without any rushing around that morning. I would totally do it again.

I didn't know the Disney transfers did that with your luggage.... How much extra do you pay for that vs just taking the shuttle and dealing with your own luggage?
