What to expect in Galveston

We are going on our first Disney cruise out of Galveston and was wondering how it worked when you arrived at terminal. Do you check your bags, go thru security with carry on then check in. Or something else. Thanks

We went a couple weeks ago & that is basically it. We gave our checked bags to a porter when we got off the shuttle bus from the parking lot. Then we went through security with carryons & then checked in. There is nothing inside the terminal other than restrooms & a long line to check kids into the kids club.

You should get luggage tags before you leave. If you do not get them, the person on the curb can add tags with your room number. They will take your bags and the next time you see them will be in your room between 3 pm and 7 pm. Take things you will need before dinner in a carry-on; camera, medicine bathing suit. Then you will go through security and go to the check in line. At the check-in line the person will take your passports and check you in. they will take your pictures and give you the room cards. Then you move on to wait, for your turn to get on the ship. During that time you can do the check-in for the kids club and get a picture taken with a Disney character. On our last two cruises we did not wait in the holding room we were told to just go on board. Once on the ship you can look around, there are several places to eat and there are open house for the kids clubs. The pools are also open during this time. About 1:30 pm you will be able to get into the parts of the ship where your room is located.
