So glad to hear all the good feedback on Hyatt MCO, as we are staying there the night before our February cruise, and also booked it for the day we leave the ship (taking an early evening flight home).

Questions:
Is there a Disney shop in the airport, in case we don't get something we want at the Dream's gift shops?

We don't have breakfast included with our room ---- are there 'fast food' opportunities for breakfast in the airport before we get on the Disney transfer bus?

Thanks in advance.

There is a Disney shop there, just doesn't have the cruise logo merch. There are several places for grab n go type breakfasts.

I've never used the Stay Certificates to stay at the MCO, however I know people who have. I did hear they changed for the MCO Hyatt to where they cost more so make sure you confirm the level needed before purchasing for the MCO one.

I've stayed twice at the MCO Hyatt as others mentioned, it's very convenient and easy! I have two more stays booked with them (next month and then in April) and look forward to it.

Have a great time,
Heather

Yes, you arrange for the DCL bus transportation with DCL. $35 per person each way.

When you check in, make sure you remind them you have the transportation booked. They will make sure you're on the list and give you the letter just posted.

The next morning they start picking up bags from rooms at 8:30 (that's on the letter and it was our experience as well). I believe they were at our room around 9 (we had planned to be out, but DH and DS needed more sleep so we were there).

YOu just go on down to the DCL transportation people when you are ready to go!

Disney shop, yes, but generic Disney. Universal shop, too.

There are restaurants in the hotel and there's a Starbucks and various other places to go if you have time to wander in the non-secure area.



We had a room with the balcony overlooking the TSA area, and it was almost silent even in the morning with people filling up the spaces downstairs.

Going to try this next month for the first time. Is it Disney that picks up your luggage from your room and takes it to the port? My goal is to get to the port as early as possible. Don't want to miss a moment!

The Hyatt baggage people pick up your bags and deliver them to the DCL transfer people. Then it goes to the port by DCL transport (probably on a truck).

It was amazing. If you are travelling with kids it's nice not to have to lug the bags around too. We were on the first bis out of the airport and were one of the first groups on the ship (I don't think anyone else was on the pool deck before us).

Did anyone have any luck getting a room for 5 (2a, 3k) for a decent rate at the Hyatt MCO? When I called, I was told I would have to get 2 rooms. Curious if this is the way it is, or if I just got an uninformed Reservation Specialist

We actually did have a problem with noise there but it was not airplanes, it was a cherry picker setting up the massive Christmas tree in the airport atrium. This was the Friday night before Thanksgiving week 2005 and our room was on about the 7th floor I think. It was sooooo loud all night long, we got no sleep at all. We just walked by that tree a few weeks ago and laughed/grumbled again.

On the plus side, we didn't notice a single jet plane that I recall.

It is a truck that takes the luggage from the DCL operation at MCO to the Port terminal

But that does not mean that if you catch the first or second bus that your luggage will arrive on the ship early, or make it to your room early.

We caught the very first bus, but our luggage didn't get to our room until nearly 4:30 PM.

A standard room has two double beds, so can only safely accommodate 4. They will give you a discount if you get two adjoining room.

We stayed at Hyatt MCO and loved it, used Disney transfers etc...

For my upcoming Feb 2014 Magic cruise I used lmt club which I read about on disboards or the other cruise boards. I got the room for $117. I called the Hyatt to make sure they have my reservation and they confirmed my room is reserved.
