    Tressa from NJ Asked

    My family of three is spending a few days at a Disney resort before sailing away on a Disney cruise with the rest of our family. Can I book the Disney Magical Express to our resort and then book our departure from the cruise separately with our large grp?

    Ahoy, Tressa!

    What a special vacation you have planned for spring of 2018! May is actually one of my most favorite times of yEAR to set sail because the weather is usually very pleasant. You will love having the opportunity to enjoy a few days of magic on land before you experience the wonders of Disney on the high seas. And sharing it with family members will make it even more memorable!

    Tressa, Disney's Magical Express is always included in your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. I have found this complimentary service to be very convenient when I've flown into the Orlando International Airport. But this service is only available between the Walt Disney World Resort and the Orlando International Airport. If you want to take advantage of Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation to Port Canaveral and back to the airport, you will have to add that on to your cruise reservation as it is an additional charge. One-way and round-trip vouchers are both available for purchase so you can customize it to meet your transportation needs. You can also reserve your own private transportation to Port Canaveral from your Disney Resort hotel and then from the port to the airport with your larger family. It really is whatever makes the most sense for your crew! If you want to utilize Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation, you can call (800) 951-3532 up to three days in advance to your departure. 

    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Tressa. As you think of additional questions, please feel free to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again.

    Have a magical day!
