Port arriival

We are driving down and parking at the parking garage. What is the earliest time we can park? What would be the earliest time we can get into cruise terminal? We are Platinum members so it doesn't give us an arrival time. Thanks for any help. Steve

Do not arrive at the port before 10:45. Port Canaveral actually says the port opens at 11:00, but I have heard they getting a little more relaxed. If they won't let you in at 10:45 you wil just 15 minutes to drive around before they let you in.

The port parking area does't officially open until 11 am, people have posted that they have sometimes opened 10:30-10:45. You do not have to pick a PAT when you are Platinum you will be in boarding group 2. They have been starting the boarding process between 11:30-11:45.

We have a PAT of 11:00 and we are planning on parking at the garage also. So that means we may not be allowed to park until 11:00?
