    how do i book magical express

    Hiya, Teresa!

    Welcome to planDisney! You picked an amazing time to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth Autumn is my favorite season at Walt Disney World Resort. The fall festivities kicked off with the opening of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and will close out with the final Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. In addition to fabulous food and wine pairings and exciting special events, there are also special Character Dining options and Ghoulish Goodies throughout the parks. But before you can enjoy all the fab festivities, you'll need to get from the airport to Walt Disney World Resort. Here is everything you need to know about your transportation options. 

    Teresa, I am sad to report that Disney's Magical Express retired at the end of 2021. But Hakuna Matata, friend. This does not mean you are destined to spend your vacation in an airport terminal! There are a variety of services and options to get you from your airport adventure to your Disney destination. Ride-share services, such as Lyft can pick you up and have you off to your resort in no time at all. You can schedule a ride share in advance or request a ride when you arrive. I used Lyft for my last visit and requested a ride to my resort while I was waiting for my luggage at baggage claims. By the time I had my bag, my ride was ready to whisk me off to my resort. It was a very seamless process. When you reserve a ride share your preferred vendor will let you know which door to meet your ride at through their app. There are also traditional travel transportation options including rental cars and taxi options. Mears Taxi and other providers offer taxi services that can be found on both the A and B sides of the terminal. Car rental options are also located on both the A and B sides and can be found on Level 1.

    And speaking of Mears, this company offers standard and express shuttle transportation to and from your Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel. You can easily secure your spot for Mears Connect online before your scheduled arrival. Mears currently operates out of the location where you previously found the Magical Express, on Level 1 of terminal B. There are also a variety of other providers that offer shuttle services to the resorts. 

    I hope that these tips help you find the best transportation option for your whole crew!
    We'll see ya real soon!
