Sorry. Wrong wording on my part. Does arriving at the port, via DCL transport from WDW, around 2 or 2:30 hurt your chances of getting reservation to PALO on board?

From my understanding that really only effects when you get to the port, not your actual boarding time. As people have pointed out, if you have a late PAT but take the transfer, you'll be able to check-in as soon as you get to the port regardless of your PAT, but you'll still get a later boarding number.

Well, we've only done it once that way, but it didn't hurt our chances. We booked Palo when we got onboard after arriving from WDW on DCL transfers.

Now that was a long (15 night) cruise, maybe the shorter cruises it could be more of a problem with fewer available slots.

Possibly, if you are on a shorter cruise. My first Dream cruise we didn't get brunch because we didn't arrive in time (only one brunch was offered).

Thanks. We will be on a 7 night Fantasy and really want to try PALO brunch. Was trying not to change plans just to arrive earlier.

On a 7 night you have more opportunities for a brunch than a 4 night.
