    2 adults and a 2-year-old are flying into Sanford Orlando Airport day before Dream departure. We need suggestions for transportation from Sanford Airport and hotel (reasonable price) close to Port Canaveral. Thanks

    Hello Margo!  Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Disney Cruise Line vacation is only a week away.  I am absolutely excited that soon you will be stepping onboard the Disney Dream and hearing your name announced as you start your high sea adventure!  Have you considered adding an evening at a Walt Disney World Resort before your cruise?

    There are rooms available for the night before your cruise at all three of Disney's All Star Value Resort hotels with very reasonable rates.   With this option, you can use any of the taxi or shuttle services listed on the Orlando Sanford International Airport website to pre-arrange transportation to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  You can kick off your magical vacation spending the evening enjoying the fun Disney theming at your resort and even use the complimentary transportation to check out Disney Springs for dinner.  To easily get to Port Canaveral, you can arrange a Disney Cruise Line coach to pick you up at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and take you directly to the Disney Dream the next morning.

    If you prefer to stay in Port Canaveral, you can arrange private transfer to your hotel from the airport.  My family and I stay at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Cape Canaveral Beach Resort when we stay near the port.  It's location is perfect and it has great beach access.  You would need to check availability, but they have also provided a shuttle for us to the cruise terminal in the past.

    No matter how you arrive, be sure to check out the model of the Disney Magic in the cruise terminal lobby! Happy travels and enjoy your time on the Disney Dream.  Bon voyage!  Angie
