In November 2023, Disney Cruise Line will begin sailing out of Port Everglades in Southern Florida for the first time. We already know that the Disney Dream will start things off with the enchanting Very Merrytime cruises in November and December, followed by Marvel Day at Sea in early 2024.
Planning for the brand new (to DCL) port is well underway on the Disney Cruise Line forum on our discussion boards, and there is some great information being shared that we thought you should be aware of if a cruise out of Port Everglades might be in your future.
In addition to suggestions of rideshare and/or public transportation, we thought we’d remind you of the Brightline train service that began last week from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to various locations in southern Florida, including Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.
Fort Lauderdale’s airport and Port Everglades are adjacent to each other, unlike MCO and Port Canaveral. Depending on traffic and route, it is about 14 minutes from the airport terminal to the Disney terminal in the port.@SteveMouse | DISboards
Dania pointe is a great place to stay if you come in the day before it’s connected to a nice outdoor shopping/entertainment complex. There are 3 or 4 hotel in the complex too. A nice brand new Marriott, Hyatt place and I can’t remember the others. There’s a bunch of restaurants, bowling, movie theater, grocery store, clothing etc if you forget something. It’s close to both the airport and port and out of the traffic of 17th street port area and would only be a 10-15 minute ride from the port and airport too. If you want a beach experience Marriott Harbor Beach is a nice hotel close to the port and on the beach. It’s a very popular hotel and has lots of events there and can be overrun by teens during homecoming and prom season.@princesscinderella | DISboards
