    We are off for our first cruise in May and added DCL Transport from MCO. We are arriving the night before staying at a hotel near the airport. Where at MCO can we find check-in for DCL transportation next morning? Thanks, Alex

    Ahoy there, Alexander! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited that you and your crew will be embarking on your very first Disney Cruise Line vacation this May! You're so close, I bet you can almost feel the ocean breezes now! With everything included on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, you've made one of the smartest decisions around! You'll be wowed by exciting activities, plenty of unique and gourmet dining options, Broadway-caliber entertainment, and the Disney level of service that has helped make magical memories at sea for years! 

    Coming from overseas, I'd definitely expect you to arrive the day prior to embarkation - that's just good planning! You've taken it one step further, though, into "planDrew-approved" status by staying near the airport and returning on embarkation day to catch your official Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation to Port Canaveral! When my family sails out of Port Canaveral, we are always sure to do the same thing - so you're in good company, if I do say so myself! 

    When you return to Orlando International Airport on the day of your cruise, whether by hotel shuttle, ride share, or rental car, you'll want to make sure you arrive at the B-side Terminal. Once you arrive, be sure you have all your baggage tagged with the Disney Cruise Line luggage tags you were provided, and make your way down to the ground floor (Level 1) and all the way to the end of the terminal. It's a very long terminal, so just keep walking until you see Disney Cruise Line representatives - you can't miss them! 

    Now, seasoned Disney vacationers will recognize Level 1 of Terminal B as the former home of Disney's Magical Express, which no longer operates, but official Disney Ground Transportation lives on in the form of Disney Cruise Line Port Transfers! 

    I always like to say that Ground Transportation makes it possible to truly let our vacation start from the minute we climb aboard the motor coach, so once you arrive sit back, relax and get ready to take it easy! 

    Thank you so much for your question, Alexander! I hope this helps you and your crew check one of the final items off your list as you prepare to embark on your adventure! If you require any other assistance as your sail date gets closer, please sail our way again here at planDisney and drop us a line! 

    Safe travels, and wishes for a peaceful journey in every way!
