    My family has scheduled a town car to pick us up after our cruise and take us to MCO. After reading a few negative reviews, I am considering cancelling the town car and booking DCL transportation. It would cost about $20 more for DCL bus, so $$ not too big an issue. My concerns are this, we have a late seating and it seems that getting off the boat at about 9:00 can be a long process and I don't want to miss my town car pick-up. I don't want to rush off early, as my flight does not leave MCO until 1:00 p.m. Using DCL bus, I will be assured of transportation no matter what time I get off. However, my airline does not participate in the DCL program, so I won't get the benefit of not picking up luggage and checking it in at MCO.

    Any experience with this issue?? Opinions and advice, please!!!!

    We have used DCL transportation from the port to MCO twice and had no problems. We waited until close to 9am to disembark both times since our flights were late in the afternoon. After clearing customs, they loaded us on the first available bus and we were on our way within 10 minutes. Since the difference is only $20, I would go with DCL transportation. :)

    You can always eat breakfast at the buffet on the pool deck (any time you want) instead of doing the sit down breakfast that is tied to your dining time.

    We have used a car service on all 3 of our cruises, and were able to pick the time we wanted to be picked up. On one cruise we actually did the sit down breakfast (and had late dining) and we were picked up at either 9 or 9:30 by the car service. We were through customs and outside in plenty of time.
