    Hello, we are taking the Disney Magical Express bus from MCO to the cruise terminal. What time does the first Express bus leave the airport terminal?

    Hi Roderick!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your Halloween on the High Seas voyage will be here before you know it and I am so excited for you!  Have you downloaded the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app yet?!?!  If not, do so because it can now be used prior to setting sail allowing you access to your reservation, itinerary, onboard activities and much more!  Then, once onboard it will be very useful to access the schedule of entertainment and activities, menus and even your stateroom account!

    Disney Cruise Line’s ground transfers are the most convenient way to get to Port Canaveral from Orlando International Airport or a Walt Disney World Resort hotel on embarkation day.  Ground transfers begin at 9:30AM from the airport and run until 1:30PM.  The travel time between Orlando and Port Canaveral is approximately one-hour, but I guarantee it will fly by because you will be so excited!  And the minute your Disney Cruise Line ship comes into view you won’t be able to contain your excitement!

    Quick hint – if you plan on being on one of the first motor coach transfers to Port Canaveral, I recommend getting a quick bite to eat at the airport ahead of time.  Embarkation won’t begin until 11:30AM or later, and you won’t find options for food at the cruise terminal, so planning ahead is a great idea!  Once onboard, you can head to Cabanas for a buffet lunch, but sometimes waiting with little ones who have empty bellies can be trying!  (At least from MY experience…)

    Wishing you a magical and memorable adventure at sea, Roderick!

    Happy Sailing!
