Boarding in Miami

Does anyone know exactly what time they begin boarding in Miami (with the family of the day) ?

Just trying to figure out last minute logistics.

And while I'm here. What's inside the port? We've never sailed out of Miami and I'm wondering - is there food available? do the characters come out? etc

Thanks so much

We sailed on 1/28. We got to the port right at 11am. They announced family of the day around 11:35. We had boarding number 3 and were walking up to the ship by 11:45!

No food being served or anything, so bring snacks for little ones. We stopped for a breakfast around 8:30 that morning to help hold us over until lunch at 12.

There were characters for photos, but we didn't see where they were until it was time for us to board. They are set up past the check-in area under the escalators that lead up to the gangway.
