There are several different Port destinations associated with the Disney Cruise Line, but which one should you choose?! Port Canaveral remains one of the most popular departure points for family cruises. With several year-round cruises from this port, which include three-, four- and seven-night voyages to a variety of destinations in the Eastern and Western Caribbean and the Bahamas, as well as a stop at Disney’s private island Castaway Cay, there’s no wonder this is a popular spot!
With the Disney Wonder, Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream all sailing from Port Canaveral, Port Canaveral offers a variety of Disney cruises and experiences perfect for any family with sailings from January to May. Each ship has a variety of magical onboard experiences ranging from unique family dining to dynamic Broadway-style live musicals! Guests can also choose from a wide array of itineraries with sun-drenched beaches to the Bahamas and Eastern and Western Caribbean.
Every cruise from Port Canaveral stops at Castaway Cay, the Disney private island paradise in the Bahamas. Castaway Cay is the ideal getaway for families reserved exclusively for guests sailing on the Disney Cruise Line and outfitted for premium family leisure. The island is perfect for those seeking some adventure, relaxation or quality time with the family! While at Castaway Cay guests can participate in activities from stingray encounters and snorkeling to bike rentals and private cabanas. If you are looking to just lay out on the beach, this is also the perfect spot with its powdery white sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and lush landscapes all around.
Of course, another reason why guests should cruise out of Port Canaveral is it’s close to the Walt Disney World Resort! This makes Port Canaveral the perfect place to start or end your vacation! Port Canaveral, near Orlando, is only a one-hour drive from Walt Disney World Resort, giving you the option to plan the perfect Disney vacation – both on land and at sea! Plus, Disney also makes combining a cruise and resort stay easier with options like motor coach transportation between the port and resort and luggage delivery from the resort to your stateroom.
