    Is the bus from the airport to the resort still available or should I book my own transportation?

    Greetings, Lester, welcome to planDisney, we thank you for this excellent question regarding transportation to and from Walt Disney World Resort and Orlando International Airport.
    Transportation return options from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort have now become even more flexible, allowing you full control over your mode of transportation, Lester, as the former Disney’s Magical Express has now been retired.

    Lester, I will list the following options for you to peruse and decide upon, based on your personal preferences and needs.

    1. Shuttle Services such as Mear’s Connect, a shared service that you can hire with either limited stops at Disney Resort hotels, or limited wait time direct service which is not private.

    2. Rental Car Service providers are available where you can rent a car to use as you like, or, drop it off at the Car Care Center, or at the Walt Disney World Dolphin car rental site at Walt Disney World Resort to avoid paying hotel daily parking fees, and utilize complimentary Disney Transportation to the Resort hotels, theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs.

    3. Ride Share Services such as Lyft and Uber which are easily accessed providing a variety of vehicle choices, simply download the applicable app.

    4. Private Car Service, which in my opinion is the easiest, and with the variety of differently sized vehicles to accommodate your travel party, it could possibly be an affordable, convenient, and quite a comfortable option. Some will even make a stop at a grocery store allowing you some time to pick up those little familiar essentials to make your stay feel more like home during your stay. Two that I have used are Quicksilver and Happy Limo.

    5. Taxi Services for hire which are direct, but they tend to be priced a little higher.

    I hope this list gives you a good starting point, Lester, and may I suggest that you secure your choice in advance of your anticipated arrival in Orlando.

    Lester, in preparation for your Disney vacation, please make your Disney Park Pass reservations with your valid theme park admission to ensure you visit the theme parks of your choice in the order of your preference. 

    We thank you for consulting us, Lester, we would be honored to assist you with your future Disney vacation planning.
