Galveston Parking with Least Walking

Hi There!

We are sailing out of Galvestin in April on the Magic. As I am a single Mom, traveling with three young kids (8,4,3). I was hoping I could get advice on the parking that drops closest to the disney terminal. I'm just not comfortable crossing the street while trying to manage all three kids and all of our assorted luggage.

Thanks so much!

e have used the terminal parking twice now with no issue. You will pull up to the terminal and drop your bags. Ask them where there parking lot is. They will tell you and state either parking lot A or B. There are signs. You will pay when you enter the parking lot. When you park, you will get out of your car and a litle bus will be there to get you to the terminal. No walking.

On departure day, they will bus you back over. The stop is right outside the terminal door. May be a little line, but they run several shuttles. Never waited more than 5 minutes.

We used Discount Cruise Parking, and they dropped us off right at the entrance doors to the port. Their lot is a little ways down from the port, but they take you and your bags right to the door (or as close as a vehicle can get.) They drop you right where the porters are, so your bags go right from the van to the porters cart, and you don't have to mess with any bags that are being checked. They'll take care of your bags while you take the kids. They were very nice, and very quick, both ways. After the cruise we were on the van and headed to our car while most people were still in line waiting for their shuttle. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.discountcruiseparking.net/

And if you use discount code 8115 you get $5 off.

Have a great cruise!

Used Lighthouse Parking for 9 years now. You pull in and park and they come to your car with a small shuttle bus and take the luggage out of your trunk and put it on the bus. You all get on and they drop you at the terminal and take your luggage off the bus for you. Easy and all the spots are covered.

Can I just say Good for you!! I am truly impressed; 3 little kids by yourself. You win the award for Most Capable Mom of the Year! ]

ETA: I am obviously not that observant. We are on the same cruise. I would be more than happy to help if I can in any way. I have no idea when and where we are going to park but if you would like to try and coordinate, just PM me or post on our Meet Thread.
