    My family is hoping to do both a Disney cruise & trip to Magic Kingdom, are there recommended ways to get the best possible deal &/or help to make the trip seamless?

    Welcome aboard, Giselle! Planning a Land and Sea Vacation with Disney is the best way to experience all the magic that Disney has to offer! My family and I always add a few days in the parks at the Walt Disney World Resort to our cruise vacation, usually beforehand, so we can relax onboard after all the walking in the parks.

    Disney Cruise Line's agents are happy to help you book a Land and Sea package, or you can simply book your Walt Disney World Resort trip separately and then link your reservations with the agents at Disney Cruise Line and add transfers. Either way, the best way for a seamless transition from land to sea and back again is to book Disney Cruise Line's Ground Transfers. These are $35 per person each way, and I promise they are the easiest and most stress-free way to go between the resorts and the port and then back to the airport. The motorcoach meets you at your resort, sends your bags ahead to the ship, and takes you on a relaxing ride to Port Canaveral where you'll board the ship. It really doesn't get easier than that!

    So, begin by deciding when you'd like to take your trip, choose the Walt Disney World Resort that best fits your family's desires and budget, and the Disney Cruise Line ship from Port Canaveral that includes the itinerary you'd like. The Find A Cruise page of Disney Cruise Line's website is a good place to start. Have fun as you browse the many options you have, Giselle! Then, give the agents at Disney Cruise Line a call at (800) 951-3532, or your travel agent, to book your land and sea trip. Please stop back and let us know if you have more cruise questions as you continue planning! We're happy to help!
