    I'm taking the Disney cruise line in Florida then staying at the Disney animal Kingdom Lodge. How does my family get from the cruise line to the hotel. Will there be arrangements like a travel package sent to me?

    Welcome aboard, Jackie! You're about to embark on my family's favorite type of Disney vacation: a land and sea adventure! Each time we sail from Port Canaveral, we book a few days before our cruise at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts so we can extend the magic even longer!

    Animal Kingdom Lodge is our all time favorite resort at Walt Disney World! If you've never stayed there before, you are in for such a treat! From the moment you enter that grand lobby and then venture outside with sweeping views of the savannah full of animals, you'll feel like you're a world away!

    I'm glad you are asking about ground transfers for your cruise, because Disney offers optional cruise transfers that you can book right now. Simply give the agents at Disney Cruise Line a call at (800) 951-3532 to add these to your reservation. You can book transfers from the airport to Port Canaveral and then from the port to Animal Kingdom Lodge after your sailing. They cost $35 per person each way, but I promise you that it is the easiest way to transition from land to sea and back again. My kids adore the motor coach ride from the port, and see it as an adventure in itself. They watch classic Disney cartoons onboard and participate in the onscreen Disney trivia, which helps build the excitement as we make our way to our resort!

    Have a great cruise, Jackie, and please stop back with any other questions before you set sail. We're happy to help!
