    We are taking a Disney Cruise to Alaska in May. We plan to visit friends and tour around Canada a few days before the cruise. What is the best way to get to the cruise ship from our hotel?

    Hi there, Julianne!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR about your upcoming adventure!  Touring Canada followed by an Alaskan adventure with Captain Mickey…doesn’t get much better than that!  I love that you are adding on to your already exciting Disney Cruise Line vacation by seeing some friends and visiting new places.  My family always tries to add on to our cruises if at all possible, which is especially nice if dealing with a time change…or have the additional vacation days to use!

    Disney Cruise Line offers ground transfers from Vancouver International Airport and/or the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel to the Vancouver Port Terminal for embarkation.  Current pricing for a one-way transfer (from either location) is $25/person and can be added to your reservation by contacting Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 at least three days prior to your sailing.  If you will not be arriving in Vancouver by airplane or staying at a hotel the night before, you will want to arrange for another private transfer or shared car service to get you to the cruise terminal for embarkation.

    When you complete your Online Check-In (opens 75 days prior to sailing for first time Guests and must be completed at least three days prior to embarkation), you will select a Port Arrival Time.  This scheduled time may help you determine how best to get to the cruise terminal on embarkation day!

    Please come back with any other planning questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
