    We will be cruising on the Disney Fantasy in 2019 and we’re thinking of spending a few days beforehand in Cape Canaveral, do you have any recommendations for resorts/hotels? Thanks Louise

    Hi there, Kirstey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You are in for an incredible sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy next year!  I know you are eagerly anticipating all the fun in the sun and hopefully you’re already exploring all that a Disney Cruise Line vacation has to offer.  

    Cape Canaveral is approximately approximately one hour from Orlando and where you will board your beautiful ship for your journey at sea.  If you are planning on spending some time there before – or after – your sailing, my suggestion would be to research the hotels directly in Cape Canaveral or the Cocoa Beach area.  I, personally, have not stayed in that area prior to embarkation as we will usually stay near Orlando if we are traveling in before setting sail, but I know the area is well known for its beaches and the Kennedy Space Center attraction.  Depending on whether or not you will have a vehicle, you may want to choose a location that has transportation to Port Canaveral for your embarkation.  I am sure that your time in Cape Canaveral will be enjoyable and relaxing before heading onboard for additional fun, sun and relaxation!

    If you are a first time Disney Cruise Line Guest, your Online Check-In and booking window will open 75 days prior to your sailing.  At that time, you will be able to book any onboard activities and onshore excursions through Port Adventures.  You can also book adult-exclusive dining and spa reservations to continue that relaxing vacation you started before your sailing!  

    Wishing you a wonderful and magical sailing with many memories made!

    Happy Sailing!
