    What is the best way to travel from the airport from independently booked flights? Are there shuttles that will get us there before 3? Our flight arrives at 10:45am.

    Welcome aboard, Samantha! Disney Cruise Line makes transitions from land to sea and back again so easy with their ground transfers.

    Guests can call Disney Cruise Line at 800-951-3532 to book ground transfers from the Orlando International Airport to Port Canaveral. Currently the cost is $35 per person each way. Disney also offers transfers from the port back to the airport and between the resorts at Walt Disney World and Port Canaveral. It simply couldn't be easier to let Disney Cruise Line take care of all of these details! It doesn't matter if you booked your flights or Disney did, they're happy to arrange ground transfers for you.

    When you book the transfer from the airport, you'll be mailed luggage tags to put on your bags before you check them in at your home airport. Once in Orlando, Disney's luggage reps will take these bags directly to the ship, no need for you to go to baggage claim at the airport. So, when your flight arrives, simply make your way down to Disney's Magical Express area on Side B - Level 1 of the airport. There are plenty of signs pointing the way. While Disney Cruise Line's ground transfers are different than the Magical Express for resort guests, they leave from the same area. You'll check in for transportation there and soon the motorcoach will have you on your way to Port Canaveral.

    The ground transfers to Port Canaveral from the Orlando airport begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day, so once you arrive, you'll be on the next one heading out. The ride is about an hour, and your whole family will be entertained with classic Disney cartoons and Disney trivia on the television screens of the motorcoach as you make your way to the port. It's an easy and relaxing way to begin your cruise vacation, Samantha! Have fun planning!
