    Can I add Mears shuttle service from airport to my Disney package vacation?

    Hey, Howdy Hey Michelle welcome to planDisney fellow Buckeye!

    As we all continue to find our way to Walt Disney World Resort since the termination of Disney's Magical Express, some companies have stepped up to help fill this void. MEARS has been one of the big ones to do so with many offerings to get you back and forth from Disney property to the airport. 

    Unfortunately at this time, there is not a direct link to MEARS through Disney so you are NOT able to add this to your vacation package. You would have to get in touch with MEARS directly through their website or call to book your transportation options. 

    The current partnership looks like Alamo car rental that you would be able to book through Disney and would be included in your vacation package. Not only Does Alamo have cars available for rental from the Airport, but also has a place on Walt Disney World property at the Car Care Center. So if you wanted to book a rental car with Alamo, you can pick it up at the airport and drop it off at the Car Care Center in Disney and vice versa for the trip home. You would also have the ability to book shuttles to and from your resort to the Car Care Center which will help navigation as well. 

    Of course, I would also recommend looking into your options as this part of the journey is an extra transportation fee. Rideshares such as Uber and Lyft have options as well as other companies such as Away We Go Transportation which is similar to MEARS. 

    You might also want to keep an ear out for any word on Minni Vans by Disney. This form of transportation operates through Lyft and is one that use to offer ways to get around the resort quicker as well as transportation to and from the airport. It was announced recently that this service would resume in some capacity in the summer of 2022. As we all anxiously await the status on the return of the Minnie Vans, you can check into those other options in the meantime. 

    I hope this information was helpful and gives you some options for getting to and from the airport to your Disney hotel. Let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
