Port Canaveral hotels - free shuttle

Anyone have a list of hotels with free shuttle service to the port?

No car, we're flying in and spending the night prior to sailing.

thanks

Thumbs up Use the rental shuttle!

If you have no car, then I assume you will rent a car from the airport to the hotel.

If you choose to use Budget Car Rentals, then you can drop off your family at the port in the morning with all the luggage, return the car to the rental place, and take the Budget shuttle to the port. The rental building is les than10 minutes away.

The Budget shuttle is free, just tip the driver.

I have done this several times successfully.

Just reverse when you disembark and need to go back to the airport.

Each car rental place has a designated spot right in from of the Disney port so you know where to get off and on.

No, plan to take a car service. Plus, I plan to fly out the day prior to departure. Feb cruise, and I want a buffer day of travel just incase a winter storm hits michigan and delays the flight by a day. I'd be happy to save $20 transfer to the port from the hotel if i can. if not, I'll just work it into the budget. $20 is nothing compared to an overall cost of $10K.

cheers!

I thought the cost of parking your car for the cruise at the Hilton was $5.95/day according to their website?

There's a list here: www.parkingstay.com . Very few hotels have a 'free' shuttle anymore.

Looks like the better deal would be to choose a hotel package that will pick you up from MCO. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks!
