Talking DCL Transportation - Port of Miami

I just recently booked a 5 day Western Caribbean cruise on the Wonder for March 16-21, 2013.

I was wondering if anyone knew how the Disney ground transportation would work in Miami? I'm probably going to be flying into Ft. Lauderdale a day early and will stay at a hotel there or in Miami and take the hotel shuttle to the port. But on the final day, will DCL transportation take me back to the Ft. Lauderdale airport, or just Miami Int'l???

I haven't found any postings about this, nor could I find anything on the usual info sites.

Thanks in advance!!!

I called them today as we just moved our galveston cruise to the new years cruise, oddly it was the same price, and they only have transfers for MIA and are making a list for FLL as they are working on it. It seems right now they didn't realize how close they are together, LOL

Here's the official word from my TA....which isn't much different than what you've already mentioned...LOL

"Apparently, if you would like transfers from FLL they put you in waitlist status. They then get back to us and let us know if they can offer the transfers and if so, how much they will be."

Clear as mud?

I call when I tried to book a client and the answer was no. There is a hertz very close to the port of Miami.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure that once Disney starts selling more and more cruises out of Miami, they'll change their minds. It's still early yet.

If all else fails, I'll fly into FLL the day before sailing and stay at a hotel that offers free transport to PoM.

After some searching I found quotes of $70 for a towncar from FLL area to PoM.

When I just looked at our reservation, the transfers offered are $20 each which I assume is from Miami Airport. Already cheaper to get a private car from FLL to the port, so I'm thinking even if Disney offers transfers from FLL it's not going to be cost effective for 4 of us.

Of course the $70 may go up between now and then, but something else worth considering if more than 3 people are travelling.

On one of the other Miami threads this company was recommended. Looks like they have great rates from Fort Lauderdale to the port.

I have used SAS before and I highly recommend them. Prompt service from our hotel in FLL (Hampton Inn Suites on Stirling Rd, which has free FLL shuttle and free breakfast night before), great service to the MIA port and great pick up. Price can't be beat! I think the rate now is $18 a person for 1-5 people.

You also have to see if that $70 rates includes tax and tip. If not, then it's going to be cheaper to go with DCL transfers for 4 or less people.

Good point with the tax and tips, thanks.
That $20pp transfer with dcl is from MIA though. I'm thinking if they offer transfers from FLL it will be quite a lot more.
