You are just there and you can sleep in that morning, get a late breakfast, and then head over to the port and feel very rested and less stressed.

I would never choose to stay at Disney unless we are visiting the parks the day before.
Lots of great advice, we would not be able to get to Disney until around 2 pm so going to the parks is not really worth it. I like the idea of not adding the extra stress on the morning of the cruise. Sounds like it is best to drive to the Port and forget Disney and just hang out at the beach and watch the ships go by. I already booked Country Inn and Suites, so got our room reserved.
