    We're taking a cruise in August, flying in one day prior to the departure. How can we book a one-night stay with ground transportation through Disney so our luggage can get transferred from the airport to the hotel to the ship?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kelley! August will be here before you know it, so I'm happy to help with your question. 

    There are many benefits to arriving at your departure port the day before your cruise. It always gives me a little peace of mind and allows for some time to explore. You can call Disney Cruise Line directly, and they can help with the arrangements with the participating hotels selected by Disney. They will also arrange your ground transportation to the port on embarkation day. The same can be done post-cruise as well.

    Depending on your Castaway Club membership level, your advance booking window is here or will be coming up soon. You will be able to reserve Port Adventures and onboard activities such as services at Senses Spa & Salon and adult dining experiences. The actual date will be listed under My Reservations after you log into the Disney Cruise Line website. Some Port Adventures and other activities are popular and may not be available when your advance booking window opens. You can continue to check back to see if something opens up or check onboard once you embark.

    Kelley, if you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney. We are happy to help!

    Adventure is out there!
