    My DD and I are going on the Magic in September into Canada. What is the best way to travel to the port to board the ship? We are from Buffalo - not sure if we should fly or take the Train to NY- and how to get to the ship once we arrive in NY. Thanks

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Kathleen!
    Congratulations on your upcoming Disney Magic Cruise out of New York City!  I'm thrilled to hear you are taking advantage of cruising out of your home state on this magnificent vessel!  There are several options to consider for your transportation to the Port of Manhattan Cruise Terminal.  If you decide to fly, Disney Cruise Line does offer the option to purchase ground transfers from Newark, JFK, or LaGuardia.  They are $72 per person for a round-trip voucher and can be added to your reservation by calling (800) 951-3532.  Traveling by train will put you about two miles from the port from either Penn Station or Grand Central Station.  To get to the ship you will want to take a taxi, bus or hop on the subway. 
    I hope my suggestions help with your planning, Kathleen!  I'm so glad you visited the Moms Panel and hope you will stop by again if you have more cruise questions!
    Have a magical day!
