Magic Boarding time in Port Canaveral

Is boarding time coordinated with your room category? My family is staying in a cat 5A. Any estimates when we can board? Trying to figure out what time to get there. Thanks.

When you do your online check-in you choose a port arrival time, or PAT. The terminal opens at 10:30 a.m.

Your boarding number (different thing than your arrival time) is tied to your PAT. The earlier the PAT, the lower your boarding number and the earlier you board. My impression is that you are given a high boarding number if you don't do the on-line check-in.

The only room category that is given special treatment regarding PAT & boarding numbers is concierge, then platinum CC members. Everyone else has to check in online to select from available PATs.
