    We are taking a Disney Cruise departing from San Diego. We'll be traveling from 1 hour away. Is there any good area we can get dropped off early (with kids) and easily get transportation to the terminal within our 15-minute arrival window?

    Ahoy there, Steven! Welcome to planDisney! I bet you and your crew are so excited to be just a few days from embarking on an incredible Disney Cruise Line Adventure on the Disney Wonder! Now this is where I'd usually go on and on about how much I love the Disney Wonder, but there's no time to waste, so let's dive right in! 

    One of the best things about leaving from the Port of San Diego is how convenient the port is to downtown San Diego and a wide array of activities and sights to see just steps from the port! 
    The entire area is easily navigated by bus, taxi, or rideshare and much of it is very walkable!

    In downtown San Diego, the San Diego Trolley provides fun transportation to key locations such as Old Town - and it's bright red like the funnels on the Disney Wonder, too. From pedicabs and horse-drawn carriages, there are so many ways to get around downtown that you'll be able to take planes, trains, and automobiles to the next level and can arrive in style to the port when it's time to meet the ship for your Port Arrival Time! 

    Here's an extra planDrew-approved tip: be sure to search "luggage storage San Diego" to find a number of convenient places to store your luggage while you explore downtown and Gaslamp Quarter - all while not having to cart your bags around with you! 

    I hope that helps you and your crew plan for some pre-arrival fun, Steven! I can't wait to hear how it goes! Thank you so much for sailing my way with this question...and in fact, I see you've asked us another so I'll say SEA ya real soon here, and pick back up with you on that one, haha!

    Fair winds and following seas!
