    Hi there, We have plans to take our first Disney cruise on the Disney Magic in Feb/2015. We will also be staying at Port Orleans- Riverside pre and post cruise. Since we will be staying at Disney Is there a cost to take the DCL bus to and from port?

    Welcome aboard, Alanna! Next winter is a great time to set sail with Disney, as you'll certainly be looking forward to the warm waters of the Caribbean when you wave goodbye to chilly Ontario!

    Disney Cruise Line offers ground transfers between the resorts at Walt Disney World and the cruise port at Port Canaveral. The motorcoach ride costs $35 per person each way, but I promise it's worth every penny to let Disney take care of all of the details. It really makes your transition from land to sea and back again very seamless and easy.

    The night before you set sail, you'll receive a notice in your resort room letting you know what time to be ready and what time your bags need to be ready for pick up the next day. Then, just show up, relax, enjoy the Disney Cruise Line videos and classic Disney cartoons on the way to the port. Your bags will meet you in your stateroom on the ship later that day. So convenient!

    After your cruise, climb aboard your motorcoach for the hour-long trip back to Port Orleans Riverside. The motorcoaches leave on a continuous basis throughout the morning until all guests have disembarked the ship. 

    Just give Disney Cruise Line, or your travel agent, a call to add these ground transfers to your cruise reservation, Alanna. Happy planning!
