What type of transportation should we take to Port Canaveral?

There will be 6 of us in June on the Fantasy. We are staying at the Hyatt at MCO the night before. We need to figure out a way to get to the cruise. A private van would be $276 round trip and Disney transportation would be $420 round trip. Are the advantages of rising Disney worth the $$$.

For our Dream cruise next week we rented a 6 passenger SUV for 2 nights for a total rental fee of $202. Your own vehicle gives you some flexibility and control over your trip as well, and it is a cheaper option. If it was between Disney bus and limo, though, I would go limo or cab in order to get there "on my own time."

We always rent a car. It is SO much cheaper than the Disney transfers, plus you have the freedom of stopping for the toothpaste that someone forgot to pack. It's totally easy to drop the car at Port Canaveral. I would recommend the driver dropping everyone plus luggage off at the port, then returning the car and meeting the rest of the party in the terminal. You can even check the driver in, if you have their passport.

PS...it might be cheaper to rent TWO vehicles for 6 people than trying to get everyone into one. Budget code U204720 worked well for me earlier today...an SUV one way for $43. We got that for 4 of us, due to the amount of cruise luggage that we will have.

We will have a driver. My travel agent would be setting this up for us. It would be nice to be able to stop for bottled water and other needed things...

That code works great, just wondering where you got it so I can verify I can use it. It gives me some great rates. Thanks in advance!
