    Can you rent a car at WDW & drop it off the same day at Port Canaveral? Also, if we decide to use Disney transportation will it take our luggage from the hotel to our stateroom and then from stateroom to our home airport like Magical Express? Thanks!

    Ahoy Jeffrey!
    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with some great questions!  Renting a car can be an easy way to get to Port Canaveral, but the two rental car agencies located on property-Alamo and National are not located by the cruise terminal.  There is an Avis office located in the Hilton and a Budget in the Doubletree Suites both near Downtown Disney which have offices near the port.  If you can get to one of these locations, renting a car could work for you.
    If you choose Disney Cruise Line ground transportation, your luggage will be picked up from your Walt Disney World Resort and delivered to your stateroom for you.  But, unless you booked your air travel through Disney Cruise Line, you will have to claim your luggage in the cruise terminal before passing through U.S. Customs after your sailing.  Only passengers with air travel booked get to take advantage of direct delivery to their home airport from Port Canaveral.
    I hope my answers help clear things up for you, Jeffrey!  If you choose Disney Cruise Line transportation, rest assured you will have a smooth, seamless and worry-free ride to the ship!
