    Ariane: Danielle from NB asked you about transportation options specifically from Orlando Sanford Airport, not Orlando International Airport which is how you replied. I am also interested in the answer, which is why I am popping in to re-ask the question.

    Hiya Laurie!

    Thank you so much for reaching out and following up with us about this question! I am glad you brought it back to my attention, as transportation methods are a critical part of any vacation, especially for us Canadians! Luckily, each airport has many options to choose from, so let's talk about those also available at the Orlando Sanford International Airport!

    First, although Mears Connect services the International Orlando Airport and other destinations, this does not mean there are no shuttle services at the Orlando Sanford International Airport. If you would like to book a shuttle service, a quick Google search will show you all options available for that airport. Second, most options available at the Orlando International Airport, such as taxis and rideshare apps, are also available at the Orlando Sanford International Airport. If you are looking to stay on budget, these options tend to be a bit more expensive than shuttle services, which typically include both ways in the same payment. However, I have found that taxis and rideshare services are often the quickest options if you are trying to make it to a dining reservation, for example, and are on a tight schedule. Third, car rentals are also available at the Orlando Sanford International Airport. This is especially a great option if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, as Resort hotel Guests have access to complimentary standard theme park parking. 

    Now, Laurie, I do hope you can visit the Walt Disney World Resort before the end of the World's Most Magical Celebration! Indeed, the 50th-anniversary celebrations will officially end on March 31st, 2023, so I highly recommend planning a vacation before then to experience its unique offerings. For example, I not only love that each of the theme parks and Resorts are decked out for the occasion but especially the Beacons of Light at night, where theme park icons are illuminated with an EARidescent glow. My favourite has to be EPCOT's Spaceship Earth, as it even includes light and musical shows specially themed for each EPCOT Festival! Also at EPCOT, I highly recommend watching the nighttime spectacular Harmonious and Magic Kingdom Park's Disney Enchantment. Both shows have become some of my all-time favourites, so I cannot recommend them enough. Plus, for an extra dose of magic, watch Disney Enchantment from the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. 

    I hope this was helpful, Laurie, and that you will have the best day ever on your next Walt Disney World vacation! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always my honour to help fellow Canadians plan their magical vacations.

    Have a magical day,
