Last year we had early dining on the Fantasy. We went to breakfast at our assigned time and then off the ship and through customs. We used Disney transfers that made a stop at 2 other hotels before arriving at Port Orleans and we checked in at 9:30 AM.

We had early breakfast, but didn't rush off the ship. First resort stop and we were checked in by 9:00am.

Enjoy your cruise!

Yes, a park is very doable after you get off the cruise.

You can get off the ship 7:30-9. It takes about an hr to get to WDW. That means you can easily get there at opening at 9 ish if you are motivated and your customs line isn't too long. Don't forget to bring a big bag of quarters if you are driving. There are a lot of tolls in FL headed to the Port and back to Orlando and back up the interstates. (The 3.00 one is the first big one and the last one you pay before you leave the land of the tolls. Quarters help with getting you thru the Exact Change booth and possibly thru quicker.) There is only one gas station between the Orlando area and the Port, so plan accordingly for that as well! (We and several families were in a panic getting to that gas station...)

Have a great cruise and park day!

Do you mean on an8-night cruise that stops at Disney world for one day during the cruise?

If so, you need to go to your reservation, go to excursions, go to port canaveral and pick the bus time and park you want to go to.

I believe that OP was asking about after the cruise. What time will they be able to be at their resort. And if there was time to go to one of the parks that day.

"arrive at your resort in disney after the cruiser"

We just got off the Dream on Sunday, skipped breakfast and used Disney transportation and got checked in by 9:30. It wasn't a full ship and there was no wait at customs.
