    Hello! We are taking our first Disney cruise in March 2012!!! If we use the ground transport from the airport the night before the cruise, will it take us to our hotel or to the terminal?

    Hi, Kirsten!

    Congratulations on your Disney cruise next year! If you fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO), you have the option of taking a complimentary Disney's Magical Express (DME) bus to a Walt Disney World (WDW) Resort. The Welcome Center is located on the ground level of Terminal B, and you'll need to make prior arrangements or check in at the desk.  If your flight arrives prior to 10 p.m., you can take advantage of their baggage service and pre-arranged luggage tags and have DME pick up and take your bags to your WDW resort room.

    For those guests wishing to travel directly from the airport to the Port Canaveral terminal or from a WDW resort to the port terminal on Embarkation Day, Disney Cruise Line (DCL) ground transportation is available for the cost of $69 per person, round trip. Prior arrangements must be made. If you require ground transportation to/from other home ports from which DCL sails, you can research and plan your logistics from the Planning Library at I hope that helps you plan!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
