The airlines changed both my flight in and out of Orlando. Both were changed from evening flights to morning/afternoon flights. And "no" I did not book them through DCL.
I am now arriving the day before the cruise at about 12noon. I can figure out a few things to do that day.
My real question is about the 12:50pm departure from Orlando. I know we need to disembark the ship by 9am. (I am eating the late shift for breakfast so I think that might range from 7:45-8:15am start times) Will I be able to use the airline check-in and boarding pass option from DCL or will I need to check my bag myself at the airport? (the cut-off time was flights after 1:00pm for this option) If I have to check-in in my bags myself, can I leave them in the hallway the night before, pick them up myself the next morning and then proceed to the airport? Or will I have the carry the bags around to breakfast? As you can tell I have never cruised before and this is my first time.
Thanks ahead of time for any advice.
