    We are arriving at Orlando Sanford Airport and looking to coordinate roundtrip ground transportation to our resort from the airport. Does Disney offer any shuttle or car service options from this airport?

    Hello there, Blair, a warm welcome back to planDisney - it’s me again!

    I think flying into Sanford International Airport is a fantastic idea and it’s only approximately 50 miles (80 kilometres in Canadian metric) or close to 45 minutes, northeast of Walt Disney World Resort! Currently, the way to The Most Magical Place on Earth from this airport is completely up to you from a choice of rental car options - National, Alamo, Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, Budget and Dollar. The good thing with a car rental through Enterprise, Alamo or National is that you can drop off the car at The Car Care Center - Car Rental Facility catch a shuttle ride back to your Disney Resort Hotel and then use the complimentary Walt Disney World Transportation System from your Disney Resort Hotel to the theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs. When I stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, I also saw a car rental booth at the sister resort the Walt Disney World Dolphin, please contact this hotel to inquire, as I remember seeing reduced hours for service.

    You also have the option of a Ride-Share service, you can opt for a Taxi ride, or book a shuttle service such as Mears, Orlando Sun Transportation, JayRide, Executive Car Service Orlando and Via Transportation, Inc. to name a few. Please check the Sanford International Airport website for their recommended list of shuttle services. How you choose to travel for your return trip, Blair is up to you based on your travel style.

    In preparation for your arrival, we discussed securing your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations using valid theme park admission, I would also like to share a new theme park ticket option called the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane service which will save you time waiting in lines for attractions that offer a Lightning Lane entrance. You will be able to select an arrival window for all in your travel party (who have valid admission and a Theme Park Reservation) for an attraction that offers a Lightning Lane entrance - just summon the mighty Disney Genie in your My Disney Experience app!

    Blair, if you have any more questions, please feel free to find me here at planDisney, I want you to have the best vacation at Walt Disney World Resort - thank you!
