    We're only doing the 3 nt. cruise so want to get as much time as we can on it. We'll be coming from WDW and I'm thinking about arranging our own transportation there instead of relying on DCL's shuttle b/c I read you usually don't get to the port 'til say 1:00ish in that case. So what is the absolute earliest we would be able to board? We're early birds so we'll be up and ready to go out of our hotel at like 7 a.m. :thumbsup2

    You can't get on early. Boarding starts between 11:30AM and 12:00 noon.
    You also are assigned a port arrival time when you do your online checkin so do that as soon as your booking window opens for your cruise.

    that's what I wanted to know - what time boarding started. If we can get there at 11:00 vs. 1:00 on the DCL shuttle, then I'd rather do that.

    When does online check in start? Is it 10 days like the WDW resorts?

    ETA: never mind, I checked and found my chceck in date. :D
