    Hi! We will be flying into MCO the day before our cruise to make sure that we are timely. We have ground transfers and will be staying in a hotel near the airport. Where do we go the next day to catch the motorcoach?

    Welcome aboard, Anna! Isn't it exciting to have a magical Disney cruise in your future? I love planning our family's cruises and though the best part is actually setting sail, planning can be half the fun too!

    I'm glad to hear that you'll be arriving the day before your cruise. It's a good idea to do that just in case of any travel delays. You certainly don't want to start your vacation out by missing a flight or encountering a delay that could have you miss the ship! So, you are going about it the right way, and I'm glad you've already purchased Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers! When you let Disney take care of the details, it really makes your transition from land to sea and back again as easy as can be!

    When you are ready to hop onboard the motorcoach transfer to Port Canaveral, make your way back to the airport and head to Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center in the Orlando International Airport. Though Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers are separate than the Magical Express, they do depart from the same area. You'll find these in the airport at Side B, Level 1, near the ground transportation. Have your cruise documents ready to check in and the folks there will direct you to the line for your motorcoach. Soon, you'll be relaxing onboard as you watch a video about Disney Cruise Line, followed by some fun classic Disney cartoons for the kids. Before you know it, you'll be arriving at Port Canaveral and ready to board the ship!

    Have fun planning, Anna and enjoy your magical cruise!
