How often to the Disney Buses run from MCO?

I'm getting into MCO at 11:30 and don't want to be standing around for too long to get going to the port. Wondering if private transportation would be better/quicker, or if the buses run often?

They run when they fill up. I'm not sure if there is a maximum length of time that they will make someone wait before the bus will leave if it isn't filling up. With an 11:30am arrival, I would imagine that there will be plenty of other people arriving at MCO and taking the DCL transfers. If you are one of the last ones on a bus, it can be quick, but if you are one of the first ones on a bus, you can have a decent wait.

Private transportation would definitely be quicker.

From MCO to PC, I believe the DCL transfer buses run every 20 minutes and sooner if filled. I wouldn't expect a terribly long wait.

Enjoy your cruise!

I was told every 15-20 mins. We were on the bus on Nov 9th from MCO and didn't wait longer than 10mins till the bus filled up and we were on our way!

If I were getting into MCO at 11:30 on the day I was cruising, I would take official transportation. I know there are a few hours before all aboard, but I pad travel time when things like missing the ship and cruise are on the line. If my vehicle is going to break down, if it's going to have a flat tire, or if there's some blocking accident ahead of me, I want to be on the Disney bus.
