    I have a cruise next year and was wondering what Disney resort is recommended for having DCL transportation?

    Hi Jamie,

    Welcome to planDisney! We love to help other Guests make the most of their Disney vacations, so you've landed in the right place.

    There is nothing more exciting than a Disney Land & Sea adventure, so let's get started! If you're planning to begin or end your vacation with a Walt Disney World Resort stay, you have lots of options. Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation is available at every Disney Resorts Collection hotel. So, my recommendation is to consider which hotel fits your family's budget and size. From there, which area of Walt Disney World Resort would you like to stay or what types of Resort Transportation do you prefer? Jamie, there really is no wrong answer, the world, as in Walt Disney World, is your oyster!

    To simplify the reservation process, I suggest you contact Disney Cruise Line and allow a helpful Cast Member to book your hotel reservation. Not only will they be able to discuss your options, but they can also make sure you receive any special offers that apply and reserve your Ground Transportation in one simple phone call. 

    For your transportation, pick-up times from the resorts will vary depending on the number and resort locations of Guests registered for transportation. You will receive an email 48 hours prior to embarkation with your departure information. In my experience, you should expect your pick-up time to be as early as 9:30 a.m., but your email will let you know the specific time and location. Your Port Arrival Time will be assigned for you and you should be able to begin the port check-in process shortly after your arrival. 

    Jamie, now that we have those details underway, please let us know if you have other questions about your upcoming vacation. Around here, we are all hands on deck, so stop by any time!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
