Questions about desimbarkment morning

Hi All A few questions for you.

1. What is the *best* time to leave the ship, without waiting much??( Last year we waiting like 30min in line...just to completely get off ship.Trying to avoid that this year.

2. That morning--instead of your MDR from night before, you can go to Cabanas--right? At anytime??

3. What is the easliest time you can get off---and latest time you can leave/????

4. Can you bring your luggage with you when you leave ship?? Instead of putting it outside your door at night? (if you wanted to avoid the whole finding your luggage in a crazy sea of bags...?)

THANK YOUUU

Yes, to #2. Yes, to #4.

It depends--even if walking off the ship is easy, getting through customs will take time.

I've walked right off at 7am at Port Canaveral...and one time walked off at 9am and waited to go through customs for an hour.

1. The best time is to get off as soon as they make the announcement. On our last cruise that is what we did and we did not wait at all. We were in our car around 7:30ish and made it to WDW by 9am.

2. Yes

3. The earliest you can get off depends on customs. The latest you can get off is 9am.

4. Yes

If you keep your luggage with you, you will need to take it all with you to wherever you have breakfast.

We hung the do not disturb sign on the door and went to Cabanas at 7am. Back in the room 30-40 minutes later and walked our luggage off and through customs in 15 minutes.

I wouldn't try this at 8:30 am.

There was a line of buses waiting when we got off around 8am this past Saturday.

We have never used them though and I'm sure they wait to be filled?

If the ship is cleared by 7:30, there will be busses waiting. They do leave as they fill, but during the first rush and then again after early breakfast gets out should do that fairly quickly.
