    I am going to the disney cruise after I finishing my disney world trip. But how can I directly go to the port canaveral from disney hotel? Can the Disney's Magical Express® directly go to the pier without going to the airport?

    Welcome aboard, Kelly! You're about to head off on my favorite type of Disney vacation: a Land and Sea adventure! My family loves spending a few days at the Walt Disney World Resort before we set sail with Disney Cruise Line! You'll love a surf and turf vacation with Mickey!

    Disney Cruise Line offers Ground Transfers from the Walt Disney World Resorts to Port Canaveral and back, or back to the Orlando International Airport. There is an additional cost of $35 per person each way, but I promise you, Kelly, it is the easiest and most relaxing way to transition from land to sea and back again. You can add these Ground Transfers by calling the agents at Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532. Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers are similar but separate than the Magical Express to the parks.

    Let me tell you a little bit about how it will work! The night before you set sail, you'll receive a letter in your resort room detailing the luggage pick-up times and motorcoach meeting time and location for the next day. Usually, our luggage is picked up about 8:00 a.m. from our resort room. We don't need to be there, as long as our bags are there and tagged with the Disney Cruise Line tags that are provided. We keep our day bags with us to enjoy the resort for the rest of the morning for a relaxing breakfast and some shopping or exploring until it's time to meet the motorcoach for the hour long trip to the port. Pick up times vary based on how many guests from the different resorts are sailing, but you can expect your meeting time to be anywhere from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the resort lobby area. Disney makes it so easy and takes all the hassle out of planning your transportation! Have a great cruise, Kelly!
