    Hi Nancy, Thinking about a 4 day cruise on the Dream in August. I'm a DVC member, so thinking we might fly in the night before, take the Magical Express to WDW for a 1 night stay, take the Express again the next morning to the cruise. Does this work?

    Ahoy Keith!
    Thanks so much for the question!  Many Disney Cruise Line Guests like to kick-off their magical vacation on the high seas with a pre-cruise stay at the Walt Disney World Resort the night before! The good news is that you will be able to be picked up at any of the Walt Disney World Resorts on the morning of your cruise.  Although Disney's Magical Express is included in your resort stay, Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation is not.   It can easily be added to your cruise reservation and currently is priced at $70.00 per person which will also include your transportation back to the Orlando International Airport. 
    When you check-in at the Walt Disney World Resort, you should be able to find out your pick-up time and location for the next morning. If not, it will be in your stateroom in either letter form or via voice mail.  On the day of your magical voyage, your luggage will be picked up first usually around 8:00am. You will place luggage tags on your bags just like you did for Magical Express and off they will go to your stateroom.  Your pick-up time will most likely be between 10:00am-12:00pm.  The ride over to the port is a little over an hour depending on traffic and you will ride in comfort in the air-conditioned motor coach!  Bathrooms are available on the bus and of course you will be entertained on the way!  It is seamless, smooth and best of all stress-free!  After your sailing, you will board the motor coach and be back at the airport in no time at all! 
    I'm so glad you stopped by, Keith!  Please let me know if you have any other questions while you are planning for your cruise vacation!
    Have a magical day!
