    It's about an hour's drive from WDW to P C, so around 10:00 am is good.

    We usually leave around 9:00-9:15, (always paranoid :scared1: about traffic problems or flat tires). We try to get there around 10:30 drop off luggage, park the car near the ramp (believe it's the 2nd floor) walk across the ramp & into the terminal, check in & wait to board. Our last couple of cruises the terminal opened somewhere between 10:45 & 11:00. Have a good cruise..:)

    Be sure to register for your port arrival Time (PAT). You are able to get your PAT

    Platinum Castaway Club, Suites/Concierge: 120 days in advance
    Gold Castaway Club: 105 days in advance
    Silver Castaway Club: 90 days in advance
    All Other Reservations: 75 days in advance

    Your boarding number is tied to your PAT.

    It's a little over an hour to the port from WDW. The Parking garage usually opens between 10:45 -11:00. The ship starts boarding around 11:45 with Concierge and Platinum boarding first.

    Thanks....I have already checked in online. I just for the life of me could not remember what time we got on the ship...LOL

    We have a PAT of 11-11:30, so we figured leave POR around 9:15-9:30 and head over to Port, Park and wait......getting so excited!!:cool1:
