Orlando Private Town Car Review: Access Line Transportation
Town car, limo, van, and SUV service for Orlando area
In my search to find the most comfortable and most affordable option to transport a family from Orlando to Port Canaveral’s cruise ship terminal, I reviewed Access Line Transportation.
In this article I will share:
Access Line Transportation gave me a complimentary ride from Orlando to Port Canaveral in exchange for this review. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.
I discovered something interesting
As I explain in Orlando to Port Canaveral Transportation Guide, the most methods cruisers use to get themselves from Orlando to Port Canaveral (and back) are:
- Disney Cruise Line Transfer (their shuttle bus)
- Rental car
- Shared shuttle service
Somewhere at the bottom of that list, you’ll find “Private town car” as an option.
But hang on.
Wait a sec…a private car is LESS than Disney’s bus?
During my research on the guide, I found something interesting…
If you have a family of 3 or more and are considering taking your cruise line shuttle,
a private car and chauffeur (or SUV, van, etc) is probably cheaper!
(Don’t believe me? See rate comparison here.)
So, I wanted to experience a private car…
After seeing the price comparison between Disney Cruise Line Transfer (a very popular choice with Disney cruisers) and the average cost to get a private ride with a personal driver for my family, I decided to experience the private car for myself.
So, I set out to find a reputable private car service.
My Personal Experience with Access Line Transportation
Together with my husband and two friends, I recently had the chance to take an Access Line Transportation town car from our hotel near the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to our cruise terminal in Port Canaveral.
I scheduled an 8am pickup and our driver was waiting for us at the entrance of the hotel, having arrived at about 7:45am.
The ride included a personal driver, a comfortable ride in an elegant new Lincoln towncar, a bottle of water, and a free grocery stop along the way to pick up a few things I forgot to bring from home.
Simply put, the experience was awesome. Our driver was professional, knowledgeable, and a delight to talk to along the way.
My husband recorded the whole experience on video… check it out below:

What You Can Expect from Access Line Transportation
On Time Pickup
Pick up will be on time at your hotel in the Orlando area or the Orlando International Airport.
Your driver will greet you with a personal sign so you know the ride is for you.
Lots of Luggage Space
Your luggage will fit. If you have odd size luggage or an excessive number, call ahead first.
Luxurious, air-conditioned ride in a modern car.
Free Grocery Stop
Your ride includes a free 20-minute stop at a grocery store along the way. Our stop was at a Publix grocery store in Cocoa, Florida, just outside of the port terminal in Port Canaveral.
Driver Waits While You Shop
Your driver will wait for you while you shop. This is a good chance to grab some snacks, motion sickness medicine, water bottles or other items you might have forgot to pack.
Driver Loads Your Groceries
At end of your grocery stop, your private car driver will load your groceries for you.
Complimentary Car Seat or Booster
Need a child seat? Just reserve at time of booking.
They take care of all the tolls along the way.
Ride Lasts 60-75 Minutes
The ride from the Orlando airport and surrounding hotels to Port Canaveral is about 45 minutes. Plan for 60-70 minutes if you include grocery stop.
Drop-off is Easy
Your driver will drop you off in front of the cruise terminal, very close to the entry. Porters from your cruise line will take your bags.
The Verdict? Access Line Transportation BEATS Disney Cruise Line Transfer
If you have 3 or more people in your party AND are considering taking Disney Cruise Line‘s shuttle bus from Orlando airport (or nearby hotels)…
Would You Rather…?
Pay the same or LESS for a luxury car with private chauffeur?
Pay the same or MORE for waiting for the next crowded Disney bus?
