    Guests embarking on a Disney cruise to Alaska or San Diego will fly into Vancouver International Airport. The ship departs from the Canada Place Cruise Terminal. Travel time from the airport to the terminal is 45 minutes, depending on traffic.

    Ground Transportation

    Ground transfers from Vancouver International Airport to the Canada Place Cruise Terminal are available for purchase.

    Guests arriving in Vancouver from the U.S. and international destinations will proceed through Canadian Border Services Agency Immigration inspection before heading to baggage claim. Claim your luggage and exit baggage claim via Customs, where you will turn in your Customs Declaration Form. A Disney Cruise Line Representative will be waiting for you outside of Customs, or if you are arriving domestically, near baggage claim. Transportation may include a motor coach, minibus or taxi, depending on arrival time and party size.

    Luggage Tags: You’ll receive Disney Cruise Line luggage tags in your document package. Remember to attach the luggage tags to your checked bags. The tags will help you identify your bags at the airport and are needed so Disney can deliver your bags directly to your stateroom.
