No, just show up. Parking at the Disney terminal is very easy to find (right there at the terminal), very easy to park, very convenient for boarding day and leaving afterward, plentiful, covered, and unreasonably expensive. We use it for shorter cruises, but park elsewhere for longer ones because of the cost.

Nope, no need there is plenty of parking. You will drop your luggage off first then go to the 3rd deck to park. That deck will take you right to the Disney terminal.

port is trying all sorts of creative ways to get people to park there because of how many EMPTY spaces they have due to increased off site competition.

offering a way to make a reservation implies you NEED a reservation

and that just ain't so . . .

You can park at several places less than 10 minutes away for half (or less) what the port charges . . . Yes if you park at the port, when you get back you can be in your car and on the road faster. But it will cost you plenty. Only you can decide which wins, speed or price.

Off site you MIGHT need a ressie - they DO fill up.
