    I didn't realize the Magical Express didn't drop guests off at The Disney Swan Resort. How is the best when to get from the airport to the resort? Any suggestions?

    Hi Lisa,

    It's nice to see you dropping by planDisney again with another great question!

    If you are just looking for a quick and budget-friendly way to get from the Orlando International Airport, then using Lyft or Uber would be an option. If you have used Lyft or Uber before, keep your eye out for discount codes that you might be able to apply to your trip. If you would prefer a more stylish ride, you can use a private transportation service. Just search the internet for Orlando private transportation and several options should appear. Some of these options will include a stop by a local grocery store if you need to pick up a few grocery items to store in your room. My fellow panelist Jonathan also has some advice about transportation to the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels.

    Once you get to The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, you will find yourself right in the middle of the magic! I love the location of this property because it is within walking distance of EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. It's also in Disney's BoardWalk area, which is lovely. My family adores the dining options on Disney's BoardWalk, particularly Trattoria al Forno and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. I still have it on my bucket list to try the Kitchen Sink. The last time we dined at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop, we watched lots of other families embrace the challenge, but our courage was low!

    While visiting, you should also try Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf which is near the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel. We walked there from Disney's BoardWalk Inn. The miniature golf course was super fun and we did it on our arrival day. Just remember to take some water and a little friendly competitive spirit.

    Lisa, it sounds like your plans are coming along. Keep an eye on the operational updates since policies, procedures and available theme park experiences could change. We are so excited to welcome you to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
