Port Canaveral to Walt Disney world

Hello!! Does anyone know how I can get to Walt Disney world from Port Canaveral (not using Disney transportation)? We are going on a cruise with Royal Caribbean out of Port Canaveral and are going to stay at Walt Disney world for 2 days after our cruise.

I have been searching rental car places but can't find any at Port Canaveral.

Thanks so much

Try searching for Cape Canaveral instead of Port Canaveral.

We usually rent from Budget. They have a shuttle that will pick you up from the port and drive you the 2 minutes to the rental office. Very easy.

We've used both Avis and Budget our last trip. They both have a shuttle that was readily available and makes it very easy.

Port Canaveral To Walt Disney World

I recommend, and have used Around The Clock (ATC) Twice before when sailing from Port Canaveral. They also have a Port Canaveral to WDW shuttle service. They are reasonable, courteous, and most importantly, ON TIME.

International Drive to Port Canaveral Shuttle Service Orlando Airport Shuttle to Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach

Enjoy your trip!

We rented from Budget when we did this 2 years ago. We were on a Disney cruise but did not want to pay for the transfers when we needed a car anyway. I checked their site and they are actually listed as Cape Canaveral. Good prices and the shuttle to/from the ship was easy. Also we picked it up at Cape Canaveral and returned it to the Orlando airport location and also used a discount code I found on mousesavers.com.

Love, April

Are you keeping the car while at WDW or returning it when you arrive at WDW? I return car when I get to WDW, preferring to use WDW transp at the parks and DME.
If you are returning at WDW, Budget, Avis & Dollar have desks at DTD hotels, Alamo & National at Disney Care Care Centre and Dolphin. If you are keeping car to get to airport, company doesn't matter as much.
