    I have another question moms and dads:) How do we get to the galveston port for Hobby airport. IS there a shuttle. we will be flying in the night before. Not sure if we need to stay close to the airport or galveston. Thanks

    Ahoy Alecia!
    Thanks for writing back with another great question!  Since you are flying in the night before your cruise, you have two options offered by Disney Cruise Line.  If you decide to stay by the airport, Disney Cruise Line does offer transportation from the Houston Marriott South at Hobby Airport.  When you arrive at Hobby, the hotel shuttle will pick you up for your night's stay.  On the morning of your sailing, Disney Cruise Line will transport you to the Port of Galveston.  Currently, prices are $60.00 per person for a round-trip voucher which includes your port to airport transport after your cruise vacation. 
    The second option is a pre-night stay at the Hotel Galvez & Spa which is located about a mile from the port.  A hotel shuttle will also pick you up from the airport after your flight, and you can expect about an hour drive to the hotel.  Once you arrive at the Hotel Galvez, you will need to visit the Disney Cruise Line Hospitality Desk to select your shuttle time for the next day.  Again, for $60 per person, you will be transported to the hotel, to the port and back to the airport after your sailing.  Disney Cruise Line strongly recommends you pre-purchase your transfers prior to sailing by calling a Cruise Reservation Agent at (800) 951-3532. This agent will also be happy to book your pre-cruise stay at either one of these hotels.
    I hope you will find one of these options a good fit for your vacation needs.  Please let me know if you have any other questions about your magical voyage!
    Have a wonderful day!
