From the Orlando International Airport

Port Canaveral is about one hour (45 mi./72 km.) east of the airport. You have four options: transfer, town car/limo, taxi, or rental car.

Disney Cruise Line Ground Transfer—Transportation from the airport to cruise terminal can be reserved for the day your cruise departs. A Disney Cruise Line representative meets you at the airport and directs you to a motorcoach. Check your cruise documents for transfer details. Even if you’re not on a package, you can purchase these transfers for $70/person roundtrip—inquire at 800-395-9374, extension 1. If you’re departing in the next day or so, just fill out the Transfer Purchase Option in your cruise documents and hand it over at the Disney’s Magical Express counter on the first floor of the airport (a $70/person charge will appear on your shipboard account). For more details on motorcoaches, see page 80.

Note: Mears Transportation does not provide shuttle transportation to Port Canaveral (no doubt because they operate the Disney Cruise motorcoaches).

Minnie VanYou can take a one-way Minnie Van between Walt Disney World and Port Canaveral for $240. Minnie Vans accommodate up to 6 guests plus luggage. Book at 407-828-3500.

Town Car/Limo—A luxurious alternative is a town car or limo. We can recommend Quicksilver (888-468-6939) or Happy Limo (888-394-4277), and there are many others. The driver meets you in baggage claim, helps you with your luggage, and drives you to the port. Cost is around $230 plus tip for a town car ($260 for a 10-passenger van) round-trip to and from the port.

Taxi—At approximately $120 one-way, it’s not the best value, though a minivan taxi has its points. You can get taxis at the airport on level 1.

Rental Car—This option works well if you’ll be spending time elsewhere before you cruise and need the wheels (thus, this is usually our preference). It can also be less expensive than the other options, but you must spend time for pickup/dropoff. For our tips on choosing the best rental car company for your needs, see page 78.
