We too have booked out of Hobby. This looks like a great option. We are just two people, perhaps someone else would like to join and create a bigger group to use this service. It would be less expensive. PM me or use FB and we can discuss

She called the AAA TA DCL reservation line and found out for certain. She says that there is a company that charges by auto not by passenger. It might be the one you got. It might be worth looking into several of us taking a larger van and split the cost, depending on flight times. Our flight leaves at 2:10 PM and there would be 4 of us.
We will join a group to share the costs.

We actually fly out on Southwest I think we depart around 2 pm. Would share a ride and the cost with others

I am all for saving money so whatever group we can get together that would be great. I am not sure how far out we would need to make a reservation though.

I got an online quote from them before I posted the link for a Towncar for 2 and they came back with $120 which is a little higher than the rate they show on their home screen so I do not know if rates have gone up and they haven't updated their site or if that was a mistake.

I think I read it was something like $24. Not sure but I think you can bring your own.

Is anyone else planning to do the CaboDolphin Kids excursion? I would like to book this on June 16 th when booking opens up ( with my 6 & 9 yr old boys) and wondered if any other kids from the ship might be doing it?

My wife and I are also in. I guess we need to figure out how many people are ready to commit this early in the process and also what time to schedule the pick up. It looks like we might be able to reserve a large shuttle bus that will seat 20 something along with all the luggage for around 250-350. That is very reasonable when the cost is split up by a large group.

Disembark Question

The itinerary on the DCL website shows the arrival time in Galveston as 9:30AM. What are everyone's thoughts on how accurate this will be? Any past experience? Thinking about scheduling transportation to Hobby Airport and would love to know when we will actually be allowed to disembark the ship. Thanks!

From what I have heard the docking time could be delayed due to fog and other matters since the ship enters and goes up a channel for quite a ways. DCL usually says all passengers need to be off the ship by 11 AM if they are docked on time.

Don't know how often the fog happens, but on our quick little cruise in February, we were delayed 4 hours before we could enter the harbor due to fog. Don't know how much that happens in the summer months, but it is really bad in the winter.

I would prefer getting this set up early just to not have to worry about it anymore. Did you find another option that offered a larger shuttle bus or is it through that same company? We had 10 people interested a couple nights ago I am not sure exactly where it stands now.

Hobby Airport Transportation

I went back a few pages and found the following interested in sharing a shuttle from the Port to Hobby Airport:

RanCan 2
Pahrumpgirl 4
dta87 2
CruzOle 2
Sharon56 2
Thekoeppens 2

If there is anyone else interested please let us know ASAP.

Remember Disney will not provide any ground transfers to Hobby, they only provide it to IAH. We are on our own to get to Hobby.

I believe we should keep this open and available for another week or two, so we can make sure we help as many as possible. The more people we have the less the cost will be for everyone. We still have some time.
