as far as I know (i am a travel agent) there is no longer a land/sea combo package offered by Disney. You need to book things separately.

Disney did away with the land and sea combo trips a few years ago. You can book your own or use a TA.

The official land/sea combo have been done away with by DCL but there is an option at the DCL site to book either pre or post WDW hotel stays around your cruise.

The problem with that is the WDW rooms are usually at rack rate and if you attach it to your DCL reservation you can't add free dining if it becomes available or you can't take advantage of any pin codes or room discounts if they also become available.

You are much better off booking your WDW stay and your DCL cruise as two separate reservations. This gives you total flexibility in being able to take advantage of discounts/dining promos at WDW.

You can easily add DCL transfers for a fee of $35 pp each way from WDW to Port Canaveral or if your WDW stay is after your cruise from the Port to WDW.

Of course Magical Express will be complimentary from MCO to WDW or WDW to MCO.

Book your cruise first. Then plan your Disney days around it. Our cruise is Mon-Fri so we will come in Fri night, have Sat and Sun for parks, cruise Mon-Fri morn, debark and have Friday and maybe Sat for another park day or come home. Its easier nowadays to design your own packages. You can get last minute sales rates or play around with your park dates. We usually don't stay on WDW property but it would be awesome if we did! (Got to have 6 nights at Saratoga in 08. Wowee!) We tacked on a WDW park hopping day before our 3 day and used Orbitz to book a "WDW Friendly" hotel or whatever it is, anyway they are authorized somehow and it included breakfast and a free shuttle to the park, which was great. Called Orlando Vista hotel, it was nice (not spectacular but fine) and was like $50 a night right in Buena Vista. Since the bus LEFT YOUR BUTT on the pavement at 7:45, it was real incentive to get up and out. For the first time in my life, we got to see the park opening up show! So I would do that again, just to be able to save $14 parking and get there on time...

So there are lots of ways to book a Land & Sea trip, and its so custom these days. To me, there is no Disney vacation better!
