Shuttle from ship when flying home next day

We are doing a family cruise in Dec & while we don't have our flights booked yet, I have been keeping a very close eye on them & it seems that we will have to fly home the day after we arrive back in port as we will be flying back to Canada & the flights primarily leave before the ship even makes it back to Orlando. This is fine, we don't mind the extra day since we've never been to Orlando before.


Here is my question, what is the cheapest option for a family of 4 to get from cruise port to hotel. We have a hotel booked that is only 20mins from airport so that when we do fly out, we don't have a long drive early in the morning. From what I can tell, it will be a 30-40min ride. I spoke with Carnival & was told that shuttle is only an option if we are flying out the same day we get back in port.


Appreciation any/all suggestions!

I have had great results in the Fort Lauderdale / Miami area with UBER ... might want to see if that's an option in Orlando ...

I used Cocoa Beach Shuttle. You can also look for a Hotel that has free airport shuttle.

We used Joe's Airport Taxi and he was great! His price was the same as Cocoa Beach Shuttle, but what we liked was that we didn't have to drop other people off at different hotels, it was direct with just us. We highly recommend Joe.

Check with the hotel and see if they have a shuttle.

They don't, they only shuttle to/from Disney & since they are only 5mins from Disney we decided to stay there, not thinking at the time that shuttle from port to hotel would be an issue :-)

Thanks! I will check into the shuttle, hotel doesn't have one to airport
