    I am participating in Disney Cruises on the day of departure. How do I book Disney's Magical Express? Need to tell in advance whether it is a resort or a cruise?

    Welcome back, Pojung!

    Letting Disney do the driving is always the best way to transition from land to sea and back again when you're enjoying sailing with Disney Cruise Line. Mickey and his crew make the transportation details super easy!

    While Disney's Magical Express is a complimentary service for guests flying into Orlando International Airport and staying at one of Walt Disney World's Resorts, the transportation for Disney Cruise Line is a little bit different. The cruise transfers do carry a cost per person and must be pre-booked. Just give your travel agent or Disney Cruise Line's helpful agents a call to add these transfers to your cruise vacation. They offer transfers between both the Orlando International Airport and Port Canaveral, as well as between all of the Walt Disney World Resorts and Port Canaveral. In all of Disney Cruise Line's other home ports, ground transfers are also available.

    My family and I usually spend a few days the parks before sailing, so we take the complimentary Magical Express to our resort when we arrive, then we have the cruise transfers pick us up at our resort on embarkation morning to head to the ship. Afterwards, we either have the cruise transfers take us back to the airport if we're flying out right away, or book them to go back to a Walt Disney World Resort if we're lucky enough to have more time to enjoy in the parks following our cruise.

    You will need to specify where you'll be staying before or after the cruise in order to book these transfers, or let them know if you'll just need them to and from the airport. So, once you're set with your pre- and post-cruise stays, go ahead and call Disney Cruise Line to add these transfers, Pojung. They make it super easy!

    Have fun planning!
