    DCL is setting everything up for us because we won our trip we are taking in includes air & trans. Should we worry about coming in the day of the cruise or should we ask to come in the day before & stay at MCO then take the DCL bus to the sh

    Hey, Richard!

    If you're traveling from your home state of Georgia to the Orlando International Airport (MCO), you may not have to worry about the weather in December as much as our friends up north do.  Unless we're leaving from a different home port, we always fly down on the morning of Embarkation Day from Alabama.  I just make sure that we're booked on an early-morning, non-stop flight.

    Yet, to eliminate any concerns, you can fly in the day before, enjoy a night at a Walt Disney World resort and take Disney Cruise Line (DCL) ground transportation or a car service to the port terminal the next morning.  You can also stay overnight at the Hyatt Regency at MCO and be of the first to board a motorcoach at Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center the next morning.

    Congratulations on your win -- what a lucky duck you are!  Let me know if you think of more questions before your trip later this year. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
