    On debarkation day, we have ground transportation to the airport. We put the luggage out the night before, but when we get to the airport do we check our luggage in for the flight home, or does it get taken by the porter and we see it at home airport?

    Hi April!

    Great news that you have a Disney cruise scheduled next month. Talk about a Very Merrytime indeed! One thing I love about Disney Cruise Line is that they take care of us from start to finish, from the moment we set foot onboard until our final “Sea Ya Real Soon'' breakfast. I hope you will be singing the praises of your cruise and the extra special treatment you and your family received. 

    Yay for Disney Cruise Line ground transportation! The advantage to letting Captain Mickey handle all your transfers is not having to worry about getting from Point A to Point B. Just board the motorcoach and next stop, Port Canaveral.

    Once you put your luggage out the night before debarkation, you will reclaim it in the holding area just before going through Customs. You will then take your bags with you to the motorcoach bound for Orlando International Airport. Upon arrival at the airport, Guests are expected to take their luggage to their airline for transfer. In other words, Disney Cruise Line assumes no responsibility in transferring your luggage to your airline for you. Back in the day, there was a program that allowed for checking bags all the way through to the airport, but that isn’t offered anymore. 

    If you do not want to have the pressure of packing your luggage and leaving it out the night before, you can always take your bags to breakfast the next morning and disembark the ship with them if you prefer (or head back to your stateroom to grab them before leaving the ship). 

    Let’s not say goodbye to each other but instead say “SEA ya real soon!” We hope you will say "hello" to us many more times with your planning questions. Have a DREAMy cruise, and say hi to Captain Mickey for me!
