Question:  I just booked a Disney Cruise.  What are my options for getting to Port Canaveral?

Answer:  There are a few different ways to get there.  Let’s explore each so you can find the best one for you!

The first is to drive yourself.  Port Canaveral is located approximately 1 hour from Orlando International Airport, 40 minutes from Melbourne International Airport, and 90 minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort.  If driving, be aware that some roads are toll roads.  If your GPS does not recognize “Port Canaveral” as a city, then try “Cape Canaveral”.  The address of the cruise terminal is:

Port Canaveral Terminal #A, 9155 Charles M. Rowland Drive, Port Canaveral, FL 32920

Once at the port, you will want to park.  The parking facility is staffed from 10:30am to 3:30pm for guests to park their vehicles prior to embarking the ship.  The parking lot and garage are paved, gated and under 24-hour security.  Parking fees are charged when guests return from their cruise.  Guests are charged a daily fee based on the cruise itinerary.  Currently, the rates range from $60/parking space for a 3-night cruise up to $120/parking space for a 7-night cruise.  More information on parking fees can be found HERE.

Another option is to purchase transfers from Orlando International Airport when you book your cruise.  This is the most expensive option.  But, the perks are nice!  Included with this option is baggage handling, so similar to Disney’s Magical Express, you place a special luggage tag on your bags, check them at your departing airport and they will magically appear in your stateroom.  A Disney Cruise Line representative will meet you in the rotunda area of the airport and guide you to your bus.

The final option is to use a Town Car Service.  Depending how many are traveling with you, this might be a good option as you can split the cost.  Things you will want to be sure to ask when researching this option are their reliability (are they on-time?), how long have they been around and what’s included (and not included!) in their rate.  Also, be sure to see if you can find any online reviews or testimonials.

These are the three main options that I would consider when trying to get to the port on-time for your cruise!  If you have any questions about other ports, don’t hesitate to email me!  I’d also love to help you book your cruise if you haven’t done so already and answer any questions you may have.
