Driving Times

Thanks to all the previous posters for all the information.

Ok...What is a realistic time driving from Dallas to Galveston? We (me, DH, DD age 4.5) plan to leave around noon the day before the cruise (on a Thursday). Once we get through 75 downtown Dallas to 45 its a straight shot to Houston. Whats the easiest and least stressful route to Galveston (if there is one)? Any tolls? We have a tolltag. I know traffic in Houston is just as bad as Dallas and to avoid rush hour. I'm thinking after a couple of stops/avoiding rush hr it may be well after 7 before we get to our hotel in Galveston. Or could it be later? We are returning on a Saturday so I am not as worried as we can stop somewhere on the way back and return home Sunday.

I know the "official" parking lot is many blocks away from the terminal. How long (time) is it so if DH and Gramps drop us off (2 vehicles) will it take them to come back to the terminal? We have the 11-11:30 boarding I believe so should we get there by 10:30 when the doors open? I know if they get delayed and we don't board when called I know we can go later, just curious on how quickly they get back to us.
