    Does the Disney transportation from Orlando airport to the Contemporary Hotel have car seats suitable for a 4 year old child?

    Greetings Larry! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for bringing your planning question to us.

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is almost here! It sounds like your party is planning on arriving at the Orlando International Airport and heading directly to one of my favorite places to stay - Disney's Contemporary Resort. I just love being walking distance from the Magic Kingdom Park. You can't beat that location!

    Larry, if your group is planning on using Disney's Magical Express® motor coach transportation from the airport to your resort, then a car seat is not needed, nor is it recommended. Child safety seats are not able to be safely secured to the seats on the motor coach. Children can sit on an adult's lap or occupy their own seats. My children have been traveling to Walt Disney World since they were babies, and I have always felt confident in their safety aboard Disney's Magical Express®. For my children, getting to and from the airport and theme parks is always part of the adventure. They love experiencing Walt Disney World transportation.

    If is important to your party that the four year old child be secured in a child safely seat, then I suggest considering Disney Minnie Van™ Service Connected by Lyft. These themed vehicles provide private transportation throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, and are also available to transport guests between the Orlando International Airport and their Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. The airport service can be booked up to six months in advance, so I suggest calling to make your reservation as soon as possible if this option interests you. The vehicles include use of up to complimentary two child safety seats that will be expertly installed by a Cast Member driver. I have used the Disney Minnie Van™ Service Connected by Lyft with my own children, and can speak to the professionalism and attentiveness of the Cast Members operating the vehicles. It is ideal for traveling quickly and efficiently with children needing car seats.

    I hope that answers your question about child safety seats in Walt Disney World. Have a magical vacation, Larry!

    See ya real soon,
