    I am planning a Disney vacation in November. I am trying to cut cost as much as possible and would like to eliminate a rental car so my question is how do I go about transportation from the airport to the resort, resort to cruise, cruise to airport?

    Hi Brenda!

    If you are staying in a Walt Disney World owned and operated hotel at Walt Disney World, then you can just take Disney's Magical Express.  It's a free bus service from Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort; it will also bring you back from Walt Disney World to the airport.

    For the cruise part, I'm assuming you're going on a Disney cruise.  If that's the case, then you can arrange for transportation from key hotels at Walt Disney World or you could take Disney's Magical Express back to the airport and then get on a Disney Cruise Line bus to Port Canaveral. 

    Likewise, when you return, you can board a Disney Cruise Line bus for the trip from the port to the airport.  However, unlike Disney's Magical Express, you would have to pay for this bus transfer.  Thus if there are many people in your party, you might consider an alternative such as renting a car for the day or getting a town car. 

    Write back with more details and I will be happy to help you!
