    Is there a complimentary Disney Magical Express bus from Disney World Resort Hotel to Disney Cruise line terminal?

    Welcome back, Roderick!

    I'm so happy to hear that you're considering using Disney Transportation for your upcoming cruise adventure. It sounds like you've experienced the super convenient Disney's Magical Express service that guests enjoy when flying into Orlando International Airport and heading to and from their Disney Resort. For my family, that's when our vacation officially begins. The moment we scan our Magic Bands and board the Magical Express, we know it's time to relax and enjoy the magic!

    Disney Cruise Line does indeed offer Ground Transportation from both Orlando International Airport as well as the Walt Disney World Resorts right to Port Canaveral. While this is not a complimentary service like Disney's Magical Express, it is super easy and definitely what I recommend for the most seamless and stress-free transition from land to sea and back again. Give the agents at Disney Cruise Line a call to add the transfers to your trip, and you'll be all set. Currently, the cost is $39 per guest each way, or $78 per guest round trip. I promise that it's worth every penny for the convenience!

    When we've stayed at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts prior to our cruise, we receive a note in our resort room the night before sailing to let us know the exact pick up time for the next morning, which has ranged from as early as 11:00 a.m. to as late as 1:00 p.m. Our checked luggage is picked up directly from our resort room (talk about convenient!) and sent ahead to meet us in our ship's stateroom later in the day. We just keep a day bag with us to continue to enjoy the resort that morning until it's time to head to the port.

    Have fun planning, Roderick, and please stop back again if you have other questions before you head out to sea this fall!
