Booking return flight outside of cruise's recommended departure time?

Jump to last reply

Husband and I will be traveling on a Disney cruise next month (in and out of Port Canaveral). We'll be flying home on a Sunday from Orlando's airport. We do have flights booked although I am looking to change the return one for no other reason than it means possibly a 9 hour waiting time at the airport (return flight home not leaving until 7:30 at night). There is another flight that is a lot more enticing as it would get us home by 4:30. The problem of course is that it leaves at 11:35 AM. I've spoken with a Disney cruise person who says that that time is outside of their recommended departure time (they advise not booking your flight until 12:30 or later). We're committed to flying Southwest so our options are the 11:35 AM flight or the 7:30 PM (that is it for flights that day on Southwest to Pittsburgh). My gripe though is in the official "cruise contract dossier packet" that we received yesterday, it says to not book flights home until after 11:30 AM.

I know that there can always be unexpected things that come up (traffic, delay in getting off ship, etc), but seeing as how it would be a Sunday morning (no regular Orlando rush hour traffic to contend with), we already have our transfers booked through Disney, what would you do?
