    Cruising June 2014. Thinking of using DCL transportation from airport hotel to port. Then from Port to Disney. It is $70/person, would I have to pay that for my 2yr old as well? From WDW to airport after do we take ME?

    Hi April! I'm glad you're back with another question about your cruise plans!

    I would highly recommend using Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation from the airport to Port Canaveral and then from the port back to one of Walt Disney World's resorts. Disney takes care of all of the details and really makes your vacation seamless from land to sea and back again. 

    Disney Cruise Line let me know that if you stay at the Hyatt at the airport, the Hyatt will provide you with a welcome letter and let you know about where to have your luggage ready for pick up the next morning. Then, you can head down to check in at Disney's ground transportation desk in the airport and off you'll go.

    I want to let you know and apologize that I pointed you wrong in answering one of your previous questions. You had asked if you receive a cruise ship boarding number if you check in at the airport. While guests used to receive this at the airport as they boarded Disney's ground transportation to the cruise port, I just found out that that is no longer the case. Guests will now receive their ship boarding number when they arrive at the cruise terminal and check in there. But, don't worry! If you catch one of the first couple of motorcoaches from the airport to the port, you will still get a nice boarding number once you arrive and before you know it, you'll be boarding the ship!

    Once Disney's ground transportation takes you to your Walt Disney World resort for your stay after your cruise, it sounds like you'll get to enjoy an extra couple of days at the parks. What a great way to wrap up your vacation, April! As a resort guest, you will then get to use Disney's complimentary Magical Express to head back to the airport after your stay.

    Thanks for stopping back with more questions, April! Have a great week!
