You may also be asked if you want airfare. In general, we’ve found it is less expensive to book our own airfare, but you may prefer to leave the flight details up to Disney. At times Disney’s fares are lower, so it still pays to comparison shop. The biggest drawback to using the Disney Air Program is that they decide which flight you’ll take, and you may arrive later than you prefer or have tight ground transfers, though you may be able to request modifications for an additional fee. If you do use Disney Air, ground transfers are automatically included in your package (see below).
Ground transfers are automatic for those using the Disney Air Program and an option for those arranging their own flights. Disney roundtrip ground transfers are available to/from the airport to the cruise terminal, between Walt Disney World and the cruise terminal, and to/from a pre-/post-cruise hotel, if the hotel is booked by DCL. The rate is $70 roundtrip for Port Canaveral, rates for other ports vary. The ground transfers include baggage handling. For cruisers arriving at Orlando International Airport, your bags go directly from the plane to your ship (provided you’re flying in on the day of your cruise and you affix the Disney-supplied labels prior to checking your bags with your airline). One-way transfers are also available. See page 80. If you’re traveling between the airport and Walt Disney World (and staying at a Disney resort hotel), those transfers are free of charge as part of Disney’s Magical Express program (see below). If you have ground transfers and are flying on a participating airline, you can take advantage of Disney’s Onboard Airline Check-In program (see page 71).
A deposit equal to 20% of your cruise fare including taxes and fees is required to confirm your reservation, for all stateroom categories. Reservations are held for 1–3 days without deposit (24 hours for suites and cruises reserved within the final payment window), and then they are deleted if no deposit is received. Pay your deposit by 10:00 pm ET on the necessary day (or by 8:00 pm if the necessary day is a Saturday or Sunday)—you can do it over the phone with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, JCB, Diner’s Club, or American Express. Record deposits on the worksheet on page 65.
