    Airfair to MCO was rather expensive this visit, so we opted to fly to Orlando Sanford airport. Transportation seems to be rather expensive to our Disney resort. Does Disney offer any form of transportation?

    Hi Melissa!

    It sounds like you are well on your way towards planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm happy to help you with your question! While Disney's Magical Express provides complimentary transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel, unfortunately, Walt Disney World Resort does not offer transportation to or from Orlando Sanford International Airport.

    However, you do have a few options to start your trip. You could use a car service for your transportation to and from the airport, which is probably the quickest option to start your vacation. You also have the option of renting a car at Orlando Sanford International Airport to get to Walt Disney World Resort. If you rent a car from Alamo Rent-A-Car or National Car Rental, you can return it to the Car Care Center at Walt Disney World Resort, so you don't have to keep the rental for your entire vacation. The Car Care Center provides a complimentary shuttle to the Ticket and Transportation Center and from there, you can use complimentary resort transportation to get to your Disney Resort hotel. Depending on availability, you may be able to take the shuttle directly to your Disney Resort hotel. Alternately, you can use the Minnie Van Service to get private, direct transportation from the Car Care Center to your Disney Resort hotel.

    Melissa, you've picked a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World Resort because there are so many new things headed to the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs for Guests to enjoy! In just a few weeks, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will begin transporting Guests to a galaxy far, far away. Later this fall, Epcot will have a new nighttime spectacular when Epcot Forever begins dazzling Guests every night and the Disney Skyliner will open as another mode of transportation at Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning your vacation for the latest news and announcements about everything you will be able to experience during your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
