Outdoor access at Port Canaveral?

We have been to the Port Canaveral DCL port previously, but didn't realize that it was possible to view the ship from an outdoor area within the terminal. Have you done this? Can you explain how to access the outdoor viewing area from the terminal?

Thanks!

I think you just walk straight through the terminal towards the ship. There is a little balcony to the right of the mickey ears gangway entrance if I remember correctly. It's pretty small, but we got some pictures on it.

ditto above. Just walk to the back of the terminal and out the door...very easy.

Thanks

Thank you for the responses. I think I overlooked it because we were so excited to see the Mickey ears gangway!

It's really fun to go out there and watch what goes on around the pier. The ship is so large when you are that close. This is the view I snagged in June 2011.

Neat picture. I'll be sure to look for the balcony when we go.

When we were at the Terminal last March they had that area to right of the gangway/tunnel cordoned off for CC members (possibly Gold and Platinums) and we were not able to go out on the balcony.

Sometimes I have noticed the path to the balcony seems blocked by concierge or whatever but you just gotta kill. You can go out. There are 2 doors

Nope....... that's been gone for a couple of years. I can't recall exactly where it was, but that area is either where they set up to do kid's club registrations, or it's where Concierge/Platinum check in is now.

There is a door to the balcony in the Concierge waiting area and another one to the right.

LOL at "kill". I thought "Wow, she REALLY wants to get out on that balcony!"

You weren't the only one. I had the same thought.

I like the balcony but not that much!!!! Now if someone is blocking my way onto the ship that's a different story!
