MK After Cruise?

We are going to go to MK the day we get off the Dream. Barring any unusual circumstances, what time can we expect to get off the ship and how long does it take from the port to the MK parking lot?

Thanks!

I assume you're driving your own car which you're parking at the port? It takes about an hour to make the drive.

If the ship clears customs without any problems, disembarkation begins about 7:30 a.m. Some people schlep their own bags off the ship, which is a hassle through the throngs, but that will save time as well.

Or you could take your time with breakfast, get shooed off the ship no later than 9 a.m., go through customs, pick up your luggage in the terminal, get your car, and still be at the MK by 10:30-ish.

Yes, we will be driving and plan to park at the port. I am definitely NOT dragging my bags off the boat to save a few minutes, but we'd like to get to the park sort of early since it will be a short day.

Thanks!

We did this at EP off CCL dream. Super relaxed easy morning, decided instead of going home to go play at the parks one more day. Had a hopper and MK closed at midnight so we were glad we rested a bit that morning. We literally jogged the entire day (unless on rides or people had us locked in.) Did all four parks plus EP again for fireworks and dinner and ended at MK..if the park stays open late, getting there at 10 is no biggy at all.
