port arrival and disembarking times help

We are taking a limo from our Orlando airport area hotel to the port the morning of our cruise as well as from the port to WDW after our cruise...they want to know an approx time for pick up at the hotel and an approx time for pick up at the port after the cruise.

We have not yet did our online check in to know exactly what time we would be boarding. What is the earliest you can get to the port? What is the latest you can disembark the ship at the end?

I am a complete newbie to cruising...what times work for you? what are the most common times? What approx times would you give to the limo company? They told us we can adjust the times, but needed to have a good estimate to book the transportation.

How long does it take to get from say the airport area to the port?

Thanks tons!! Sorry for all the questions!

It's about a 45 minute trip to Port. Earliest you can be dropped off is 10:30 am. Disembarking begins as early ad 7:30 am and latest you can get off ship is about 9:30 I believe. You pretty much get up, pack what's left in your carry on then have breakfast and get off. I like getting at port as soon as I can to start my vacation so we get there around 10:30 when we can get access to parking garage. Likewise I try and book online embarkation for as early as we can. On disembarkation day we get up around 6:30 and have early breakfast so we can get off ship at earliest possible time.

Early dining has breakfast at 645
Late dining has it at 8
Breakfast lasts 45-60 minutes
You can also go up to the buffet
We had 645 breakfast last week. We were outside the terminal thru customs at our rental car shuttle at 815am
