    What is the best way for a family (4) to get from Disney Cruise (Port Canaveral) to Disney's animal kingdom lodge?

    Paz, you're going on a Disney Cruise, and then you get to go to Most Magical Place on Earth- wow, lucky you! Land and Sea vacations are very popular, especially since Port Canaveral is only about an hour's drive to Walt Disney World Resort.

    For a family of four, your most economical way to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge would be to book transfers through Disney Cruise Line. The price depends on whether you want one-way or round trip transfers (you may wish to choose round trip if you need transportation from the airport to the port at the beginning of your vacation). The Disney Cruise Line buses are similar to the ones used for Disney's Magical Express service, and they will be waiting to whisk you away shortly after disembarkation. Call Disney Cruise Line at (407) 566-3600 to arrange.

    Last fall, Walt Disney World's Minnie Van Service became available to Guests wanting to travel between the port and the resort. This service is a little more expensive, but it will get you to your destination quicker. The Minnie Vans fit up to six Guests comfortably and come stocked with bottled water and two car seats (if needed). Call Disney Cruise Line to schedule your ride. The full payment is taken over the phone at the time of the reservation, and there is a 24-hour cancellation policy.

    There are also several town car and limousine services available, which is an option for those families who want to make a quick grocery store run on the way to their resort.  If you do an internet search, you'll find plenty of choices. Happy Limousine and Orlando Transportation by Mike both get good reviews from travelers.

    I can't imagine how much fun your family is going to have in just a couple of months, Paz! If you need any more help, feel free to ask!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
