    Is it possible to do two days at the park and then a three day cruise on the Disney ship? Do they coordinate transportation between the two? And which ships actually go out of Cape Canaveral

    Ahoy, Kathy!

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm thrilled to hEAR you're considering a Disney by Land and Sea Vacation. Two days enjoying all the attractions, dining, entertainment the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer followed by a Bahamian sailing will be quite the magical vacation for your crew. 

    Disney Cruise Line makes it very easy to go between the Walt Disney World Resort and their beautiful terminal at Port Canaveral by offering ground transfers from all Resort hotels. This service is not included in your cruise fare, but can be added on to your cruise reservation. The journey over to the terminal ranges from 60 to 90-minutes depending on traffic, but it will go by in a flash since you'll be riding comfortably while being entertained by some of your favorite Disney Classics. Another perk to utilizing Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation is the luggage delivery service from your Resort hotel. The morning of your cruise departure, your bags will be picked up directly from your room and will arrive safely outside of your stateroom later that afternoon. If you are flying home after your cruise vacation, you'll want to purchase the round-trip ground transfers back to the Orlando International Airport. 

    Kathy, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy are both currently scheduled to sail 3-night itineraries from Port Canaveral. To explore the dates for these cruises, you'll want to click on the small arrow next to the "Depart" tab on the home page of the Disney Cruise Line website and check "Port Canaveral" to have all the options revealed. These vessels are sister ships, so you'll find them to be the same size with very similar accommodations and amenities. Some of the differences include the shows offered and the theming of some of the spaces. You can not go wrong with either vessel so it really will depend on which dates work best for you! And the best part is the 3-night cruises from Port Canaveral all include a stop at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay which happens to be my favorite Disney Cruise Line destination. You will love exploring this beautiful setting in the Bahamas with your family. It truly is a slice of paradise sprinkled with the perfect dose of pixie dust. 

    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Kathy. Please let us know if we can help you further with your plans for a land and sea adventure with Mickey.
