    what are pickup times for Disney cruise shuttle from Orlando airport?

    Hi Michael - 

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with a planning question. Traveling from the Orlando Airport (MCO) to Port Canaveral to embark on the Disney Cruise is made extra convenient when you take advantage of the Disney Cruise Ground Transportation. The motor coaches makes the hour long ride much more comfortable, and the kids (and adults) enjoy seeing the Disney videos that are shown to get you ready and even more excited to board the ship. 

    If you've added the Disney Cruise Ground Transportation to your cruise reservation, your flight arrival information will be requested so that the transportation crew will know when to expect you. The Disney Magical Express Welcome Center is on Level 1 of Terminal B at the MCO Airport.  When you arrive, they will reconfirm your family's transfers and you'll be instructed to go to the specific door to board the next Disney Cruise Line motor coach that leaves for the Port. The transportation crew will usually have a roster of expected guests for each motor coach to make sure they get everybody where they need to go. By this time, you should have already attached all the DCL luggage tags to your checkin bags. Disney Cruise baggage handlers will take care of picking up your bags from the baggage claim area (they can spot those tags easily!) and you'll see your bags next in your stateroom. As an option, you can also pick up your own luggage at baggage claim and bring them with you when you board the DCL motor coaches downstairs. With tags attached, your driver will also be your bag handler and they'll load bags in the bus and you will see them next inside your stateroom.

    Nothing beats the convenience of the Disney Cruise Ground Transportation. The busses even drop you off right outside the port entrance. I hope this information helps, Michael. Please let us know if we can help with any other inquiries as you plan for your magical voyage!

    Happy planning!
