Which San Juna Cruise terminal does Disney sail from?

Hey all...for those who have sailed on the Southern before...which San Juan cruise terminal does Disney leave from. I heard that when sailing to San Juna they go into Old San Juan BUT if starting cruise from San Juan they leave from Pan America or Navy one....anyone actually know for sure???


ALSO--- I believe Disney has us sailing on the Disney Magic for that cruise next year BUT the Disboards has listed the Disney Wonder in their introduction. Here is a link to that. http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-cruise-line/sanjuan.htm They might wanna fix this. It seems confusing to some.

Thanks for everyones help.

I knew it was the Magic, as I am on one of the sailings but I thought maybe the DIS might wanna fix that. So when they sailed the southern area in the past (there was a 10/11 nt Southern) that one went out of PC??

I am just hoping someone knows which terminal. That way I can investigate hotels and such close to it. I figure by October I can book the hotel for the night I need.

There is only one port in San Juan for cruises coming in or going out and it is in the Old San Juan area. Many years ago if the main terminals were not used, they would use terminals on the farther end, but they are still all in the Old San Juan area. We are staying at the Sheraton Hotel which is right in front of the terminal. Here is a map of the layout of the terminals and Old San Jaun.

I just read some info saying there are 3 spots & pan american & navy we the others. Using which port depended on whether porting there or departing from there. That's why I asked. I will just call Disney to verify

I read the same thing. Booked on the 9/27/14 cruise so I'm very interested in any news you uncover.

Here is a map of the entire pier. As you can see the Pan American and Navy ports are further down, but it is still in the San Juan area. I hope this helps.

How did you get a room there? It looks like it books up FAST!!! I know you can book 550 days in advance - wondering if I need to book at Midnight at the 550 day mark?!?! Seems wild that there are no rooms a available into 2014!

I ran into the same issue, just trying to price out rooms. Then when I put in for two nights, suddenly there were rooms available (although not in 2014 yet).

The Marriott also appears close.

For anyone going down before the cruise, how early are you going and what are you planning on doing?

Called Disney and they said indeed Old San Juan. I just heard different stories so good to know for sure.
We fly out the nt or 2 before hand. My plan is the friday day or thurs nt after school. I don't wanna pull the kids more then 6 days as DD will be a freshman in HS then and well don't want her to have to go to Saturday school!!! I didn't think we could book hotels already!!!

You can make reservations 550 days in advance for the Sheraton. I was marveling because it seems to be all booked up somehow thru the beginning of Sept 2014! Crazy!

The Sheraton is a beautiful place to stay. The pool is Wonderful! Very close to the terminal. If you can stay there I would.
