    I'm looking to book a flight leaving at 12:30pm and the next flight is 6:30pm. I can't remember what time I got to the airport after taking the Disney airport shuttle but I think I can make the flight for 12:30.....any thoughts?

    Yes, no problem. Disney actually suggests nothing earlier than 11:30. We took DCL transportation and had a 11:45 flight and were at the airport by 9:40. We boarded the DCL bus around 8:00 am. We were participating in the Onboard Airline check in program.

    From the DCL website:

    Our flight was at 12:05 pm with US Air . We ate the late breakfast at 8 am and left the restaurant at 8:30 & were pulling out of Port Canaveral at 8:50 & arrived at MCO at 9:40 am . I read on our airline checkin documents that they recommended 8 am but I went to guest services & they informed me that everyone has to be off the ship by 9 am that we had plenty of time to catch our flight . I asked why it said 8 am & the CM told me that some guests think they can hang around the ship late and it is just a way to try and speed guests up & for me not to worry that if we left by 9 am that we had plenty of time to make out flight . We had over 1.5 hrs to put in after we went through security ... Next year we will relax the final morning of breakfast & not feel we have to rush ...
