    We are booked for a Disney Cruise out of Cape Canaveral but are looking to go to Disney World before. Do you know if there is transportation from the hotel to the ship?

    Welcome aboard, Nadine! The answer to your question is YES! My family and I stay a night or two at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts every time we sail out of Port Canaveral. It really adds some extra magic to our vacation!

    Disney makes it so easy to visit the parks and resorts before cruising out of Port Canaveral. In fact, the agents at Disney Cruise Line can book your resort stays and optional ground transfers for you too. Here's how it'll work: You'll get complimentary transportation from the Orlando International Airport to your resort on Disney's Magical Express. Enjoy the resort and the parks and then the night before you set sail, you'll get a notice in your resort room letting you know what time the motorcoach will pick you up if you've pre-booked the optional ground transfers to the port. Usually, they'll pick up our family's checked luggage directly from our resort room at 8:00 a.m. and then we keep a day bag to enjoy a relaxing morning exploring the resort some more and enjoying a relaxed breakfast. The motorcoach pick up times are anywhere from 11:00 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m., and again you'll get your exact time the night prior. Then, sit back and relax and watch some classic Disney cartoons, videos about cruising with Disney, and Disney trivia on the screens onboard as you make your way to the port. It's so hassle free, Nadine, and definitely the easiest way to transition from land to sea and back again. After the cruise, you can also use pre-booked ground transfers to head right back to the airport for any flights departing after 11:30 a.m. It couldn't be easier. There is a cost of $35 per person each way, but I promise it's worth every penny to let Disney do the driving and planning, so you can just show up and enjoy your trip!

    Have fun planning, Nadine!
