Many guests of the Disney Cruise Line like to include a few days at Walt Disney World after their time at sea. Its called the Land and Sea package and is a great way to stay immersed in the magic if your cruise arrives or departs from Port Canaveral.
You can arrange a stay at a world class Walt Disney World Resort either before or after your Disney Cruise, but many guests like to add on a stay after the cruise portion because it gives you a few extra days inside Disney’s magic envelope and it means you won’t feel rushed to make it back to the airport to make your departure time.
While there are private transportation options, we recommend booking a Disney motor coach ground transfer from Port Canaveral directly to your resort. The cost is $35 per person. Disney takes care of all the details. Once you depart the terminal, just look for the cast members who will direct you to a Disney bus that will take you directly to your resort.
The Disney motor coach features comfortable seats and screens that play Disney cartoons and include some fun Disney Trivia. Great to keep both kids and adults entertained. Expect the trip to take about 90 minutes.
When the land portion of your vacation is over (boo hoo, we know) you can take advantage of the Disney’s Magical Express complimentary bus service to Orlando International Airport (MCO).
If you’re just planning to return directly to the Airport after your cruise, there are Disney Cruise ground transfer options there too.
Disney also arranges ground transfers for its other points of departure either two of from the airport. No matter where you’re departing from, we always recommend arriving a night early and including a hotel stay before the cruise departs. That removes so many variables that could prevent you from getting to the Cruise departure terminal on time. You want your cruise to start off relaxed from the get go.
