Default Hotel stay before cruise?

Not sure if this is the right forum, if not I am sorry.We are finding ourselves for the first time in the position of having to fly to FL. Our cruise leaves on sunday and the non stop flight I found is cheap and gets there 10:28 am. We booked bus transfers through Disney so they will shuttle us to the Port. I am reading about missing flights etc. Now i am wondering if we should fly a day early and stay in a hotel? i don't really like Hotels much. But if we do which one? I was reading about one inside the airport so to speak? Any input would be nice. Thanks

I think its always a good idea to fly in the day before. Where are you flying into?

If you are flying into Miami, the LaQuinta Inn East is a nice place to stay. It has airport pickup and free transport to the port. You can also get transport to the airport or back to the hotel through them, but it's not free.

There are some nice hotels right there by the airport. You can always stay there and have the hotel take you back to the airport to catch the Disney shuttle... know there is a Marriott right next to the airport...

DW and I have flown in the day of our cruise a couple of time and have always felt rushed. I think it's better to fly in the day before and stay in a hotel. Two reasons, we don't have that rushed feeling and you have time to react to any unexpected things that may pop up. Enjoy your anniversary and your cruise.

Thanks! I agree but Rick doesn't want to stay in a hotel. I think it makes sense especially since the cruise leaves sunday and we could travel saturday without any problem. I see what I can do guys are always a bit slower
