    Best way to get to wilderness lodge from airport

    Welcome to planDisney Jeffrey!

    How great is that feeling when you exit the plane at the Orlando Airport! All you can do is put those Mickey Mouse ears on and get the party started!

    You have several transportation options. If you want to make stops at a grocery store or have plans off property during your vacation, you might want to look at a rental car. Make sure to book in advance and shop around for the best price. There are overnight parking charges at Disney's Wilderness Lodge so factor in that additional cost.

    Another option is a shuttle service such as Mears Connect or the Sunshine Flyer. Both of these companies provide round trip service and can be booked directly on their websites. 

    If you don't want to do too much planning ahead, you can grab a taxi at the airport by following the Ground Level Transportation signs. You might also simply go on your Uber or Lyft app and hire a car when you arrive. 

    So what is the best way? That is up to you! If you plan to rely solely on Disney Transportation once you arrive at Wilderness Lodge, then Mears Connect is probably the easiest.  Personally, I am a big user of Uber, so I usually just call for a car upon arrival so they can take me straight to my resort without waiting. 

    Do a bit of research on pricing and see what will work best for you and your travel party. Whatever you choose, enjoy your stay at the beautiful Wilderness Lodge. While there, book a dining reservation for the Whispering Canyon Cafe, one of my very favorite restaurants!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
