The clerk refused to give us an early departure, telling us we would be at the train station in 15 minutes-took us 20 minutes in line on the ship, another 20 minutes to find the People Mover, 10 minutes wAiting to buy ticket, then 5 to ride , 15 to walk to the station after hiring a porter. We missed our train and the clerk's refusal cost us $228! Not happy!!
