When you pull up to drop off luggage they will tell you your options (preferred lot, parking garage) and where to go.

As you enter the port, everything is clearly marked as to where to go. Disney has their own garage/lot so just follow the signs for Disney. It's a very organized and easy process to park. You'll be directed to the luggage drop off area and then over to the garage. There are 2 parking options...the covered garage or preferred parking in the uncovered lot beside the garage. Preferred will cost $20 more. I personally like the garage and don't see much difference in the time it will take to get there over the time it will take to get to the preferred lot.
It's a really, really easy process!!

Last August we parked at the port with the 40% off deal. At the time, there were just a handful of hotels participating, but it seems this has now expanded.

Regarding the garage, I think it's even better than preferred. It might be a couple of blocks of walking, but you do it out of the sun. There's a bridge on the second floor that connects directly to the terminal. And better on your car - no need to leave it outside under the FL heat or possible hail from a heavy thunderstorm.

At the time only a few Cocoa Beach hotels where participating. It was the La Quinta (not waterpront), Best Western, and Palms Inn (or something like it). We stayed at LQ but it wasn't that good - More like a not-so-new I-95 exit hotel. Good for the night, but would not stay there for a vacation.

Glad there's more options now. We won't hit another cruise in PC until Dec. 2014 - hoping the option is still there...

Real easy to park in the parking deck for DCL, we were there last week and parked in the lower level right at the entrance, very short walk across the street to get into the terminal.

Also, stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Titusville, just off I-95, 25 minute drive, got a 40% off voucher for parking!

Awesome newer hotel with a free hot breakfast, wtih scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravey bacon, sausage, waffles, fruit and pastries!
