Transfers from MCO Hyatt

I just booked a room at MCO Hyatt using a code I got from the Dis! We saved almost 50%!!

We were planning on getting a car service and staying at either the Radison or Country Inn -- so this is a little different.

I have read that taking Disney Transfers from a Disney Resort to Port is often a late pick up time. I'm curious if the same goes from the Hyatt??

We most likely will still get a car service, so we can stop at a store on the way... but I'd like to hear all sides before making a decision!

No. I think the first pickup from the airport is 9 to 9:30 AM or something like that.

DCL transportation desk opens at 9:00, from what I've read here. You may checkin for the bus anytime after that. As the busses fill, they depart. Or every 20 minutes, whichever is first.

Since the Hyatt MCO is located within the airport, your DCL transfers will be from the airport and they run approximately every 20 minutes starting around 9:30am - first come, first on. You can check-in for transfers starting around 9:00am now at the Disney Magical Express/DCL transfers desk at the airport - used to be earlier but now this is only check-in for the transfers and you will still need to officially check-in for the cruise at port.

Enjoy your cruise!

So, if we are staying at the Hyatt MCO the night prior to our cruise, do we just wait in line for the bus by 9 am?

We are staying at the Hyatt the night before our DREAM cruise in May. I was wondering if we book Disney transfers from hotel to port? Do we book through hotel or disney? The shuttle service isn't a free, right?

You book it thru Disney and MUST be done in advance. The cost is 35$ per person one way.

They open up at 9am and first bus is 930am. Please make sure you have your cruise booklets because they scan it to access your transportation information.

Could they scan the boarding pass you print out when you do the online check-in? When we checked-in at the port for our last two Disney cruises they only needed the boarding pass, not the booklet.

If you stay there with Disney transport can you choose to take your luggage with you instead of leaving it to be picked up? The idea of that makes me nervous (that somehow the cruise would takeoff and we'd not have luggage!)

I'm sure you could take your luggage downstairs with you. However, (from our experiences at the Hyatt) they are usually knocking on our door by the time we're finished packing our carry-ons. We actually SEE them load them onto the dolly.

I just did the 3 night on the Dream 3/28/13 and this was cruise number 7. I had a booklet for my daughter and I. My niece had her own booklet but I did not bring it. I did not think I needed to carry two booklets. The booklets have bar codes that they scan before you boarded the DCL bus. Magical express was able to print something for my niece since I did not have her booklet. If you are taking DCL bus from the airport please make sure you have your cruise booklets.
