Google shuttles for cruises. Going down it might be the cheapest way to go, but the times are very rigid. The one I know of is Cruise Connections. Otherwise, you will probably need to rent a car or book a local flight.

I Just checked a couple of Orlando area shuttle services I have bookmarked, and, they don't show that route at all.

I really think the best and most economical way is to rent a car, or van.

There are shuttle services that will do it - check our cruisemates articles on Orlando area shuttles:

Transportation (these links refer to Tampa or Port Canaveral, but the companies will also do Miami if asked)

Transportation for cruisers flying in and out of Orlando is easy. Most of the larger hotels offer free transportation to the theme parks, and taxi and limousine service can be arranged by hotels' guest services. Otherwise, Thrifty Car Rental (1-800-847-4389) offers a special discount to Florida travelers.

Orlando Ride (www.Orlandoride.com, 888-311-4227) will pick up anywhere in Orlando and offers rates for vans: 1-5 persons $70 one-way, $140 round-trip; 1-7 persons, $85 one-way, $160 round-trip; 1-10 persons, $105 one-way, $200 round-trip. Limos: $125 one-way for up to 10 people and $245 round-trip.

Top One Tours offers round-trip service between Orlando International and any Disney hotel, or central Florida including Port Canaveral starting at just $80.

Mears Transportation (www.mearstransportation.com) contracts with Carnival and Disney for $15 per person one way and $30 per person round-trip, including children over 3. They begin pickups at the Orlando airport at 10 a.m. and continue until 2:30 p.m. Returns--8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Limousines, Limo Bus, Motor Coaches, Mini Buses, Passenger Vans & Town Car for individuals, families & large. Orlando to Port Canaveral as a specialty. Also all central Florida attractions and anywhere within the state of Florida. (407) 996-7171 or (866) 214-7888. www.elite-transportation.com

Also, Alpha Omega Transportation (www.alphaomegatransportation.com, 352-243-7199) has a basic price of $20 one way, $30 round-trip.

Some of these companies will only pick up from the Orlando airport and select hotels, so it is best to inquire first.

These shuttle usually specialize in going to Tamapa or Port Canaveral, but they will take you to Miami. These are best if you have 4 to 6 people with luggage. A littlemore than renting a car, but far more comvenient.
