    Hi! Is there transportation from MCO to and from the cruise port (similar to the magical express)?

    Ahoy, David!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Disney Cruise Line's Ground Transportation helps guests have a smooth, seamless transition from land to sea and back again. With Disney's ground transfers, you won't even have to worry about your luggage getting to the ship - your bags will magically make their way from the airport to your stateroom! Ground transfers can be booked by calling Disney Cruise Line at 800-951-3532 (make sure to have your reservation number handy). The cost of this service is currently $35 per person each way, so $70 round trip if you'll be returning to the airport after your cruise.

    Before your cruise, you'll receive your cruise packet in the mail, which will contain your cruise booklet, full of important pre-cruise information and instructions. You'll also receive luggage tags for your checked bags. These luggage tags will help get your luggage to the right place at the right time, and there will be instructions on how and when to attach them (in the Vacation Checklist section). You'll receive two tags for each person in your sailing party.

    Make sure to pack a day bag with your cruise documents, Passports (or official IDs), a change of clothes, valuables, and any medications you may need. It will be late afternoon before you'll be reunited with your checked luggage in your stateroom!

    Once you arrive at the airport, make your way down to the Disney Cruise Line ground transfers check-in desk (Side B, Level 1) to board your comfy motorcoach. Sit back and relax for the approximately hour-long ride to Port Canaveral, and the beginning of your magical Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    I hope this helps with your planning. Happy sailing! - Diane W.
