    We are staying overnight in Galveston prior to our Jan 13th 2020. Can we still be picked up by the Disney Cruise line bus in the morning? Would we have to stay at a particular hotel to be picked up or would have to make our way back to the airport?

    Hi there, Sheena!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to "sea" you will be headed to sea with Captain Mickey aboard the beautiful Disney Wonder!  You are going to have just the best time and I am so excited for you and all the fun that awaits you onboard!

    Disney Cruise Line does indeed offer ground transportation from two different hotels in Galveston on the morning of embarkation.  Ground transfers are available from the Hilton Galveston Island Resort or The San Luis Resort & Conference Center.  Both hotels are located directly in Galveston if you choose to stay there.  A one-way transfer in Galveston is currently priced at $45 per person and can be reserved by contacting Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 at least three days prior to your voyage.  While I can’t officially claim to be a Native Texan, I have lived in Texas for most of my life and visited Galveston on numerous occasions and can highly recommend the San Luis Resort!  It is such a lovely hotel right on the water, and you won’t be disappointed with the accommodations and service you would receive there.  But, if you opt to not stay there or the Hilton Galveston Island Resort, there are many other wonderful hotels there you can look into and taxi service is readily available to get you to the Galveston Cruise Terminal for embarkation.  You may even inquire to see if any of the local hotels offer complimentary shuttles to the port Guests heading off to sea!

    Have the most magical adventure ever and please come back with any and all of your other planning questions!

    Happy Sailing!
