    Hi! We are getting ready for Fantasy in 5 weeks!!! After the cruise we will be spending a few nights at the Animal Kingdom resort. Will there be taxis at the Port to take us to our hotel?? We plan to take our time and disembark - after breakfast

    Welcome aboard, Lesel! My family loves to do exactly what you are planning: make our Disney Cruise vacation into a land and sea adventure by adding some extra fun at the Walt Disney World resort before or after our sailing. As all of the other guests wave goodbye to Mickey and his crew on the ship, you'll still have more magic to enjoy in the parks after you disembark the Fantasy!

    Disney Cruise Line offers ground transfers from Port Canaveral to the resorts at Walt Disney World, including Animal Kingdom Lodge. I highly recommend you book a ground transfer through Disney Cruise Line by calling them at 800-951-3532. Just have your cruise reservation and resort reservation numbers ready and they will get you all set! There is a cost of $35 per person, and believe me, it is well worth it! Disney will take care of all of the details, so you can just sit back and relax on the hour long ride from the port to your resort. I wouldn't recommend a taxi, as it is a long drive, and it is simply so easy to let Disney do the work. 

    The Disney magic continues onboard your motor coach too! My kids love watching the classic Disney cartoons that play during the trip, and my husband and I try to outdo each other with the Disney trivia that is on the screen as well! Before we know it, we're pulling into our resort, checking in, and continuing with our Disney fun! 

    The motor coaches run on a continuous basis as guests disembark, so once you leave the port terminal, you'll be guided by Cast Members to the correct motor coach for Animal Kingdom Lodge, which by the way, is a spectacular resort! Very nice choice!

    Have fun planning, Lesel, and enjoy these last few weeks before you set sail!
