    What airport do we fly into if our cruise departs from Port Canaveral?

    Ahoy, Kathleen!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on your upcoming sailing with Disney Cruise Line. It won't long before you're off on an enchanted journey with Mickey, Minnie, and the entire crew. I'm sure you can't wait for all the fun to begin!

    Kathleen, the closest airport to Port Canaveral is the Orlando International Airport, which is located about an hour away. Disney Cruise Line does offer ground transfers that can be added on to your cruise reservation. You can purchase transfers by calling (800) 951-3532. I always recommend booking flights for the day before your sailing just in case you experience any unexpected delays. Disney Cruise Line does partner with the Hyatt Regency Hotel located right at the airport for your convenience. If you choose to fly in early, you can book a night there and have an easy departure morning. Just let them know you are a Disney Cruise Line Guest at check-in, and a representative will pick up your luggage directly from your hotel room and have it transported to the ship the following morning. You'll just walk over to the Disney's Magical Express ground transportation pick-up location on Side B, Level 1 to hop on your motorcoach. Another option is to pre-cruise stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel the night before you set sail. Disney Cruise Line ground transfers pick-up from all Resort hotels for the same fee and also includes luggage pick-up from your resort room. Round-trip vouchers can be purchased so you'll have a smooth and seamless transfer back to the Orlando Airport after you disembark. Disney Cruise Line does ask that departure flights are booked for 11:25 a.m. or after. 

    It was a pleasure assisting you with your question, Kathleen. If you need any other help navigating your plans, we hope you'll come back to SEA us!

    Have a magical day!
