    Hello, we are sailing out of Port Everglades on the Magic in May 2024 with our flight arriving at MIA airport. I’ve reached out to the call line a few times to book ground transportation, but they tell me to call back. Are buses available from MIA to FLL?

    Ahoy, Brendan and welcome to planDisney! You've gone the distance with your cruise countdown. Soon it will be time for you to walk on board, where the crowds will cheer when they see your face. The "Welcome Aboard!" greeting on Disney Cruise Line is the most magical ever.

    Before you get there, I know, you need to figure out transportation from Miami International Airport to Port Everglades. Like you, we are waiting on updates regarding ground transfers to the port for the time of your cruise. You have a few options to make every mile worth your while. First, you can keep checking with Disney Cruise Line for updates on the availability of ground transfers. Until there is new information, the only advice they can give is to keep calling and asking. You can also check Ground Transportation Details online for any changes to the options under "Sailing from Fort Lauderdale to The Bahamas or the Caribbean."  

    Given your cruise is getting close, you may want to consider scheduling private transportation. The port is quite large and many people fly into Miami, so there are several possibilities. You can reserve an airport shuttle like Metro Shuttle or look into private or semi-private options with companies like Jiffy Jeff or Go Airport Shuttle. Many of these services have online booking, which allows you to see the different options and costs. It is also possible to use ride-share services, like Lyft. Although I can see the advantage of their on-the-spot requests, I am a plan-ahead person and like to have my reservations made and confirmed before leaving my house. I used a car service from Orlando to Port Canaveral and was pleased with the convenience. 

    I hope you get your transportation arranged and can focus on your packing list and Online Check-In to get your travel documents submitted and that all-important Port Arrival Time. It won't be long before you are celebrating with the Sail Away party, right where you belong.

    SEA 'Ya Real Soon!
