Does taking an Adventures By Disney Short Escape before a Disney Cruise affect your boarding group? I heard they let the ABD guests register faster at the port (in the Concierge line?), but does that then affect which boarding group you are in? I'm sorry - I'm new to this. Also, I guess everyone who is going to the cruise gets transferred to the port together, regardless of your scheduled Port Arrival Time... so does your scheduled PAT even matter??
