    how do we arrange transportation to get to our Disney hotel from the orlando airport


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    There are a lot of alternatives to get from the Orlando International Airport (Airport Code: MCO) to your Disney resort hotel. None are currently managed by Disney, but you do have options. For almost all you can, and should, book your round-trip transportation before you arrive in Orlando.

    Let me share with you an idea of some of those choices, and you can select the right one for your group. The list includes shuttles, ride share services, cabs, rental cars, and even car services. There are rides to meet every need and budget.

    Shuttle Services: This is the easiest, and most affordable option. There are several shuttle companies available. I recently used Mears Connect, and it was easy, and efficient. The bus was clean and comfortable. My wait times at the airport were reasonable and it is clearly the most affordable of all the options listed here. You will want to reserve your ride ahead of time online at their website.

    Ride Share / Taxis: Ride share services like Uber & Lyft, as well as taxis are obvious choices. They will be more expensive than the larger shuttle services, but are more direct, and you are not typically riding with other travelers. If you use Uber or Lyft, consider making a reservation ahead of time, as the supply of drivers can vary at different times of the day.

    Rental Car: Of course, there is the option to rent a car. But do you really need it once you get to your resort? With Disney Resort Transportation services to get to and from the parks, you may just be paying a resort parking fee for a car you won't be using.

    Car Service: Another option that is a definite upgrade on your trip is to reserve a car service. When you book round trip the cost may not be as comparatively high as you would think, and it will shorten travel times, since you are the first and only stop. Many, like Quicksilver, also offer a grocery store stop on your arrival leg at no charge. This will be notably more expensive than the shuttle, but with larger parties it can start to make sense in your budget.

    If cost is the leading issue, then the standard shuttle services are your best bet. If you want to plus up your trip, and can afford it, a car service will really make an impression.

    Write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
