    prepping for cruise Dec2013 followed by AKL-Kidani Booked $70 ground transportation thru DVC for MCO to Port & Port to AKL. 2 questions 1)Will I get 2 different luggage tags (cruise & ground transportation)? 2)Do I need to resv. for AKL to MCO?

    Ahoy Glenn!
    It sounds like you have a wonderful Disney vacation planned for December!  With your cruise first it will be a bit easier to disembark the ship with a stay at the Walt Disney World Resort afterwards!  In just a few weeks, you should receive your cruise documents which will include your cruise luggage tags and resort tags for the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  You will want to place the cruise tags on your bags before leaving California so that they will magically appear outside your stateroom door on the afternoon of your embarkation!  On the last night of your sailing, you will place the resort tags on your luggage before you place it outside your stateroom door.  The following morning you will need to claim your luggage before you pass through U.S. Customs and head to the ground transportation area.  Once you arrive at the lodge, your luggage will be given to the bell services if your room is not quite ready.
    You can contact Walt Disney World (407) 939-6244 to add Magical Express for your departure morning. 
    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Glenn!  Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel with your cruise question!  If I can assist you further, please write back!
    Have a magical day!
