here are some prices from Mears - think that is what Disney uses.


if you rent a car - then drive it to Port Canaveral - you need to be able to return the car at PC.

think to leave a car in the PC parking lot is expensive - like $10 (probably more) a DAY.

go ask on the cruise board

If you give me a little more details, like what port going out of, I can give you some info. I have done cruises from port canaveral and just recently from tampa and also did disney. Also stayed offsite a few times.

We did a Royal Caribbean cruise our of Port Canaveral several years back. Flew into Orlando, rented a car which we turned in near the port the next morning after staying at a nearby Residence Inn. After the cruise we rented another car and stayed off property while doing Disney for a few days.

As others have said, it helps if you can tell us what cruise line (Disney itself would make a BIG difference), and what the rest of your plans are.

Also, depending on the cruise line, there are numerous cruise info sites which might have useful information, although this site seems pretty complete and has lots of folks helping to answer your q's.
