    Hi We are 2 families of 5 staying at the Contemporary for 2 nights prior to boarding the Disney cruise at Port Canaveral. Do you have a recommendation or how to get between the hotel to the port?

    Hi there, Kimberly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question about your upcoming Land and Sea vacation!  I love that you have planned your days at Walt Disney World Resort for before your Disney Cruise…because after busy days at the theme parks you will be ready for some relaxation!  And you will for sure find it onboard!

    Disney Cruise Line offers ground transfers between Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Port Canaveral.  Currently the price for a one-way transfer is $35/Guest ages three and older.  If you need a transfer to Orlando International Airport after disembarking your cruise you can also purchase transfers to the airport from Port Canaveral.  It is a very convenient way to get between the two locations, but please note that transfers must be reserved at least three days prior to your sailing.  Another option that you can consider is a private transfer.  When my family traveled with another family we opted to arrange a private transfer and were able to get a van large enough to accommodate us all.  Most car services will have a standard rate between the two locations, so be sure you go with a company that does!

    Before your vacation arrives, be sure your smartphones have both the My Disney Experience Mobile app and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app downloaded!  I love using the Navigator app’s chat feature onboard and it’s especially handy when traveling with a larger group!

    Wishing you a magical adventure on land and at sea!
