WDW on the 8 day cruise from Galveston

How late do the shuttles run from WDW to Port Canaveral? What time does the boat leave? (all this talk about missing the boat makes me paranoid)

You are on a Disney excursion, they will not leave without you. You will get a time schedule the night before to let you know when/how the Shuttles run. I know the ship left after midnight...

We are on this cruise with you and would like to know this as well! I think someone posted awhile back that last busses leave the parks somewhere around 9:30 or 10 p.m.

That's what I'm afraid of. We have reservations at Ohana at 925, and haven't been successful at getting in earlier.

We are also on this cruise..we've booked the Illuminations Dessert thing excursion so they can't leave without us, right? I have heard this excursion ends about 9:45 and attendees are escorted out to a bus...other than that, I think I read that the last scheduled regular busses were at 9:30...

We were on the 2/15 cruise and the last bus left MK at 11:00pm, but it was open until midnight that day. Our all aboard time was given as 12:30 am. All the buses from the other parks left earlier.

It sounds like you have your heart set on 'Ohana, but I personally wouldn't chance it with a 9:25 reservation. Even if the last bus is still at 11pm, you are going to have to rush through your meal and back over to MK.

I would keep calling and I hope you can get an earlier time!

They do have lots of food available late that day on the ship, so for those of you want to maximize your park time and not eat a table service meal, you can eat when get back. I think Topsider's was open until 12:30am.

Ohana is actually really easy to get back to MK at least, it's on the same monorail loop If the last bus leaves around 11, I'm comfortable. We'll show up a little early to see if we can get seated early.

I was on the 2/15 sailing too! They had lots of food options when we got back on board around 10:30. Maybe you could go for an early dinner, around 5-ish, and then eat a late night snack/meal when you get back on board.

The parks all close at 9 pm on May 14 when our WDW day is (except AK). The monorail usually only runs for an hour after the parks close, so there's a chance you might not be able to catch the monorail back to MK after 10 pm.

It looks like the resort monorails run for two hours after the parks close. Damn it, I do have my heart set on Ohana :D

It sounds like you have your heart set on 'Ohana and I hope it works out for you. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but I can honestly say I don't think it is that amazing of an experience. I'm thinking you will experience A LOT more memorable meals on your cruise than you will at 'Ohana.

Have a wonderful vacation!!!

Yes this excursion provides you seperate transportation than everyone else.

On 2/15 the last bus departed MK at 11pm.

Can't wait, only 3 more weeks for our return via the Magic!
