We just made a reservation for a rental car. It just seems like it will be easier to pick up the rental at the airport, drive it to Galveston to our hotel the night before the cruise and then park it at our hotel all week. Then when we disembark and we stay the final night at the hotel we will have transportation to get around the town. With our own car we won't have to wait and we can do everything on our schedule. It cost us $230 to rent the car from Friday night until the following Saturday. It was going to cost us more in transfers ($60 x 4) than renting a car. We will have to incur a taxi expense to and from the port but it is only 1.6 miles from the hotel so it should not cost much. I just will feel better knowing we don't have to worry about how to get to the hotel Friday night. We have not booked our flight yet. That should happen in the next day or two. We were leaning towards a Delta flight that leaves ATL on Friday around 7ish and flies into IAH but now my husband is looking at a flight the lands at Hobby. Not sure what we will end up with.

If you can fly into HOU (Hobby) you are more than 1/2 way there. It is also a smaller airport easier in and out.

my grandson is gluten free and they brought him an entire basket of gluten-free rolls every night without us having to ask! Lot's of choices, just ask, and know that you can order from the adult menu for the kids. Grass-fed steak was a standard menu item that I ordered several nights for me and the kids! It was yummy!

You will love Disney!

Hi everyone, we will also be on the cruise on April 6th. My name is Sam and I will be cruising with my husband Martin and son Luke who is 3.5 years old. We are british expats living in Dubai, UAE.

This is our first ever cruise. Very very excited. Will any of you be getting the Disney ground transfers from IAH on the 6th?

Any tips you could share?

See you all soon & take care.
