    The night before our Disney Wish cruise we are staying an AKL and will be using Disney transfer from AKL to Port Canaveral. Our boarding time DCL provided is 11:00-11:15 am. What time does DCL transfer pick up at WDW resorts? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney Stephen!

    Starting off your cruise vacation with a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a fabulous plan! If time allows, book a dining reservation at Boma - Flavors of Africa. This is one of my favorite dining locations in Walt Disney World and is located right inside your beautiful resort hotel! 

    But back to your cruise! Upon arrival at your resort, you will receive your pick-up time. Most pick-ups will be between 9am-noon. Once onboard your motorcoach, your ride will be about 90 minutes to Port Canaveral. When you arrive at the port terminal, you will go straight to check-in and be onboard in a jiffy! If you arrive later than your port arrival time, that is not a problem. You will be onboard in plenty of time to enjoy a wonderful lunch and explore your beautiful cruise ship before heading out to sea! For lunch, one of my favorites on the Disney Wish is Mickey's Smokestack Barbeque. Don't forget a side of mac and cheese - yum! 

    Please make sure to complete your online check-in prior to your cruise. You will see a Port Arrival Form once your check-in is completed. Either print out this form or have it available on your phone as you will need to preset this form, along with your travel documents (passports), when you arrive at the port. 

    Wishing you a "wild" time at Animal Kingdom Lodge and "smooth sailing" once on the Disney Wish. Bon Voyage!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
