But the buses aren't going anywhere either. There are buses lined up to take you to your resort. So enjoy your last morning on the cruise. No need to get an ulcer

A certain park at a certain time? I don't understand. Why do you have to go to a certain park at a certain time?

As I explained in the post above... We have a stop at Port Canaveral & as an "excursion" to WDW for the day - therefor we had to sign up for a bus time & park to go to for the day.

Sorry, maybe you didnt see that post!

I think we were both confused a bit! lol

I think the confusion is that for some cruises the theme parks at WDW are excursions!

Yes, for us it's a port day, therefor an excursion we had to register for. It's not a park & cruise combo - we get back on the Magic & finish our cruise back to Tx.

PrincessAbby's Mom's cruise stops at PC and they have a day at WDW therefore it was necessary for her to choose a time to board the bus for the excursion to WDW. So she may need to rush through breakfast to make certain that she makes her bus on time just like we would do for any other scheduled excursion.

They open the buffett early for the PC day. You will have enough time to eat even if you have the 6:30 departure time. If I remember properly they opened the buffett at 5:30 for our cruise.

We HAD the 6:30 depart time, but I changed it - I thought we would be dead by 2 if we were up & going that early! Lol

That is what the two sea after the PC day is for. You have time to rest then.

Oh I see. Sorry I didn't know this existed as an excursion. Gosh that seems like it would be so rushed at the park if its just a one day excursion. Not sure if my family would ever opt for that. But that's just us. It may work for other families. We have travelled so much and have learned through trial and error not to book things or too many things thus making us stress and have to rush everywhere. Every time we have done that (and we have done that) we have not enjoyed our vacation as much.

We also won a couple years ago!! We had NO problems spending that!!

I think they added these to some of the Galveston sailings. We don't do well with rushing either but I'm sure it will be a nice excursion for the people on the cruise.
