    We're doing one of the Star Wars (day at sea) 7 day Cruise January 23, 2016 -total of 5, kids 11, 14 & 16 we're traveling from Alaska so we'd like to arrive at least a day or 2 ahead. We were wondering what's a good option at WDW for 2 days or possibl

    Ahoy, Yvette!

    The Star Wars cruises coming in 2016 on the Disney Fantasy look like a galaxy of fun! You are planning to travel from far, far, away to take this vacation, and I understand your wanting to arrive a day or two early.

    If you would like to stay at the Walt Disney World Resort, it looks like your family could get a good rate at either Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort or Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside Resort. Both of these resorts have rooms that could accommodate the size of your traveling party. Please keep in mind that if you are planning to use Disney Cruise Line transportation from your resort to the port, it costs $35 per person, one way.

    If your family would  like to spend a few days relaxing near the beach before your cruise, you could always opt to stay at one of the many hotels near Port Canaveral. In which case, you might try renting a vehicle at the airport and returning it to the rental car facility near the port.

    Either way, I am positive that your Star Wars cruise will be out of this world! Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more cruise planning questions.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
