close to port..

Hi, looking for a family hotel close to the port for the day before we leave on the Disney Cruise.

I replied as follows on the Orlando forum:

"Assuming that you are flying in, there are hotels around MCO airport, which is useful if you are arriving very late. Otherwise, I would advise making the 45-minute drive from the airport to the port in the Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach area.

There are dozens of hotels and maybe 200 restaurants along and near the A1A corridor, with some of the hotels being just five minutes from the port (Radisson, Residence Inn, Country Inn/Suites) and others directly on the Atlantic Ocean beach (Hilton, Doubletree, Marriott Courtyard, LaQuinta Oceanside, Hampton Inn, etc.). The Holiday Inn Express and the Sheraton are a bit farther from the port, and not on the beach, but are nice.

Many of the hotels have shuttles to the port, and can also arrange transportation from Orlando airport if you don't want to drive yourself. However, those bundled deals are not necessarily the cheapest, so you may want to check on buying them separately. Rental car companies with offices near the port include Avis, Budget, Dollar/Thrifty, Enterprise/Alamo, and Hertz; they all provide shuttles to the cruise terminals."

Well, there is www.internationalpalmscocoabeach.com but really, the last time we stayed there we had a problem with the AC being musty and they've been going through renovations so I would have to say I'd stay at Wakulla Suites or Ron Jon's Resort. Ron Jon's is right by the port. Hope this helps and enjoy your Disney cruise!
