    I would like to attend the Christmas party in Magic Kingdom prior to my cruise from Ft. Lauderdale. Are there any transportation options besides renting a car?

    Ahoy Janet,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your question! I love your plan. Attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party before heading off on a magical Disney Cruise Line sailing sounds wonderful! What a great way to kick off a Disney winter holiday celebration! I imagine also that you will be on a Very Merrytime Cruise that will include some extra pixie-dusted holiday magic. 

    It is exciting to be heading on one of the first cruises out of Fort Lauderdale on Disney Cruise Line. I did call Disney Cruise Line and spoke with a cast member there who let me know that as of now, there is not transportation provided by Disney Cruise Line to the Port Everglades Terminal in Fort Lauderdale. You can call back closer to your cruise date to see if this has been added. You can also check the ground transportation for Disney Cruise Line website often to see if it has been added; however, I would not depend on this happening. I do think that the best way to plan is to assume that this will not be added, and then if it is added, it will be a magical surprise that you can switch to if you want to.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Janet. Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do sail on back to planDisney if you have any further questions!
