    What is currently rhe best transport from Orlando International Airport to Art of Animation?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    When it comes to getting from the Orlando airport to any of the Disney Resort Hotels, like Disney's Art of Animation Resort, there are several options to meet any party size and budget. I do recommend you research the different options I outline here and make reservations in advance of your trip so that everything goes smoothly. Let me review some of your choices, and you can pick which is right for you.

    Shuttle Services: These are typically the most affordable choices available. There are several shuttle companies, and you can find them online. I have used Mears Connect a number of times now, and it has always been very efficient. It is the most comparable to the Magical Express service from years ago.

    Ride Share Services and Taxis: Ride share services like Uber & Lyft, as well as taxis are obvious choices. They can be more expensive than the larger shuttle services, but are more direct, and you are not typically riding with other travelers. If you use Uber or Lyft, definitely make a reservation ahead of time, as the supply of drivers can vary at different times of the day.

    Rental Car: Of course, there is the option to rent a car. But do you really need it once you get to your resort? With Disney Resort Transportation services to get you to and from the parks, you may just be paying for a car that sits in a parking lot all vacation long.

    Car Service: Another option that is a definite upgrade on your trip is to reserve a car service. Many, like Quicksilver, also offer a grocery store stop on your arrival leg at no charge. A good friend of mine recently had a great experience with Black Diamond Luxury Transportation as well. At first these can seem notably more expensive than a shuttle, but with larger parties it can start to work out better on your budget.

    Because it is so easy to price out different options online based on your party size and destination, I recommend that at a minimum you get a quote for a shuttle service, an Uber or Lyft option, as well as a car service. Usually, the standard shuttle services are your most affordable option.

    Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions that may come up.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
