The events, which are open to the public, include games, a Radio Disney DJ and a raffle for a pair of tickets to Justin Bieber’s sold out Oct. 30 Houston concert. Proceeds from the sale of the $5 raffle tickets benefit The United Way.

Disney Magic is expected to sail in about 7 a.m. Saturday. While no public events are planned at that time, the port will allow the public to gather on Pier 26 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. to get a dockside view of Disney Magic.

“We’re opening up Pier 26 so people will be a little closer down on the waterfront than they normally would when the ships are here,” Port Director Mike Mierzwa said. “It should be fun for people who want to come down and see the ship leave.”

Hope this helps. We shall try and watch the webcam from the UK as our daughter works on the Ship. I know she is very excited to come to Texas! As are we when we sail from there on October 27th x
My daughter works on the ship also. She is Anne Marie in the "Disney Dreams" show. We are sailing for the third time with her on November 24th, can't wait.

I'm sure those of you that are going early to watch the arrival won't have a problem, but if anyone decides to come a little later, be prepared to hunt for parking. The USS Fort Worth is also in port and is being commissioned Saturday morning. My son and I were able to tour it yesterday and they have a complete lot blocked off to show off one of their submarine missions and have space to park other government vehicles. It's not in the same port as the cruise ships, but just down a couple of piers. It's really neat to see, so if you have some spare time, go take a look. They aren't doing tours anymore, but you should be able to get kinda close to be able to take a few pictures.

As a resident of Galveston, I am so excited that Disney is finally coming here! Although the itineraries totally stink for me and my kids. They are all long cruises and they would have to miss too much school. So, we are flying to Florida in November to do the 3 night Dream! LOL

Anywho... hope everyone has a great time going to see the Magic sail in!!

Just a heads up that some of those port camera views are not live. Check the date in the corner if the pic. Because of the commissioning of the USS Ft Worth which is happening this morning right next to where the Magic is coming in, they have taken some off line for security measures
