    Leanne from CA Asked

    We will be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort in January 2022. With the Magical Express being discontinued, what is the best way to travel from the airport to our resort?

    Hello Leanne! Thanks for visiting planDisney! I’m happy to help you find your way from Orlando International Airport to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    You are correct that Disney’s Magical Express will discontinue service beginning in January 2022. If you are without a magic carpet, horse and carriage, or flying elephant, then you will need to find your way to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Last December, my family stayed at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel which does not participate in Disney’s Magical Express. This was our first chance to experience a resort stay without complimentary transportation. In place of Disney’s Magical Express, we booked a taxi service. The process was seamless!

    We provided our flight number when we booked the transportation reservation. We received a text message when our plane landed. We met our driver at ground transportation and we were off to our resort! There were no stops at other resorts so we made it to our resort without any delays. The driver was extremely kind and friendly! There are multiple services available! You’ll find them by doing a quick internet search!

    Leanne, keep your eyes and ears open over the next few months. There are likely to be some private companies that will be making some announcements regarding transportation from the airport to the Walt Disney World Resort. You'll likely find some additional options!

    Don't forget that once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort you will enjoy complimentary transportation throughout the resort during your vacation!
