    I am planning a trip for my late 80s parents, myself (60) and one of my sons (24). We want to do the Disney cruise out of NY in Oct. Is it best to take the train into the city and uber to the port? Can you get close w/Uber? mom is in wheelchair

    Ahoy Tamara,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your Disney Cruise Line question. How exciting to be taking a cruise departing from New York City! My family and I are also planning a New York City departure for an upcoming cruise with Disney Cruise Line. We are excited to sail out of the big city!

    You can get quite close to the port using a rideshare such as an Uber or Lyft, or by using a taxi. You might find that that train, whether it is the subway or another train, might be hard to navigate. This would be especially true given that you will have all of the luggage for your cruise and are also traveling with someone with mobility challenges. The rideshare or taxi should be able to get you quite near to the port and would not require navigating the train and train stations with all of your luggage. Therefore, taking a rideshare or taxi directly to the port and skipping the train may be the simplest plan.

    Whether you are sailing on a cruise to Bermuda or a cruise to Canada, I am sure that there is adventure in store for you onboard the lovely Disney Dream, Tamara. Please feel free to sail on back to planDisney if you have any further questions!
