    We will be arriving 1 day before and staying 1 day after the cruise. Is it better for me to book those days through Disney by calling or can I do it online? Wondering about advantages, if there are any. We want to stay in Disney resort. Thanks!

    Welcome back, Sonia!

    My family and I love booking extra days before or after our Disney Cruise Line sailings out of Port Canaveral to enjoy even more Disney magic at the Walt Disney World Resort. Especially after your cruise when all of the other guests are sadly leaving and waving goodbye after an amazing time onboard, you'll be happily heading off for even more Disney fun at your resort!

    The agents at Disney Cruise Line can be reached at (800) 951-3532. They are happy to book your resort reservations for you in addition to your cruise vacation, keeping it super easy and done all together for you. However, you're also welcome to book your Disney Resort stays on your own as well. There isn't really an advantage either way, as long as you don't mind doing the legwork to book it. However, you will want to book the Disney Cruise Line Ground Transfers to take you between the resort and Port Canaveral. The agents can book these for you as well. My family and I always use these transfers because it makes our transitions from land to sea and back again so seamless and easy. Letting Disney do the driving is the best!

    The night before your cruise, you'll get a note in your resort room giving you the final details of exact pick up time at your resort (usually sometime between 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.), and baggage pick up time, which is usually around 8:00 a.m. I love that our checked luggage is picked up right in our resort room. We then keep day bags with us to continue enjoying a leisurely morning at our resort before it's time for us to head to the ship!

    Have fun planning this exciting Land and Sea adventure with Disney, Sonia!
