    We will be at Disney World prior to our cruise and would like to board earlier than later. What is the best transportation to use?

    Hello Kara,

    Thanks for sailing by.  If you are staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can arrange for a Disney Cruise Line Transfer that will take you from your resort directly to the cruise terminal at Port Canaveral.  While this is very convenient, in my experience, the earliest pickup time is around 11 am, which has you arriving at the terminal (following a bit of housekeeping and possibly a stop to pick up some additional cruise passengers at other Walt Disney World Resorts) at approximately 12:30.  I've been picked up as late at 12:30 pm, and arrived at Port Canaveral at approximately 2:00pm.  If you want to arrive earlier in the day,  your best bet in my opinion is a private car service.  While this isn't the most cost effective option, you will control what time you arrive at the port.

    I hope this helps!
