    Hi!! We are going to be booking the disney cruise for July 2018 and were wondering if there was a cost to take the disney magical express from Disney resorts to port canaveral and then the cost for the return trip from the port to the airport?

    Ahoy, Martha!

    Isn't it exciting that Disney Cruise Line has released the summer of 2018 sailings? As a planner, I was thrilled to reserve my vacation last week and now have another cruise with Mickey to look forward to next year! And it sounds like you are going to be embarking on a land and sea adventure, which is even better!

    When I plan for my Disney Cruise vacations, I like to have a good idea of what I need to budget for in the beginning so there aren't any unexpected surprises later on. If you plan to enjoy the magic of Disney on land and at sea, you will need transportation to the cruise terminal and to the airport after disembarkation. Disney Cruise Line does offer transportation from each resort hotel on property, but the main difference is this is an additional fee. Pricing is always subject to change, but at this time, it is $70 for a round trip voucher per person or $35 for a one-way voucher per person. The ride over to Port Canaveral is about 50 minutes to an hour depending on traffic, and the motor coach offers a comfortable ride with entertainment and a bathroom. Your luggage is picked up around 8:00 a.m. from your resort room (you don't have to be there) and your pick-up time will be late morning to early afternoon. You'll receive a letter with specific instructions in your resort room the day prior to your departure. 

    When it's time to disembark, the motor coach buses run continuously to the Orlando Airport, so you can enjoy one last magical breakfast before heading off with a boatload of new magical memories! Disney Cruise Line does ask that your departure flights be scheduled after 11:30 a.m. 

    Good luck with your cruise plans, Martha! Please keep us posted as you think of any further questions!
