Disney's Magical Express

    If we don't use the Magical Express, what's the best way to get from the airport (MCO) to our Disney resort with kids who need car seats? We don't plan to travel with our car seats.

    Hey Kelsey!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I’m so excited for your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I’m sure it will be nothing short of magical and you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime! Speaking of memories, you’ll want to make sure you get Memory Maker for your trip so that you can get all the digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos from around the parks and select attractions. Don’t forget to stop and ask the photographers for those fun Magic Shots! If you're traveling between now and 5/19/21, you can take advantage of the current promotion where you can get two days worth of picture and video downloads for the price of one.

    I don’t know about you but I love Disney’s Magical Express. I love getting that envelope in the mail right before my trip. It just puts me in that Disney trip mindset and I know that my vacation is just around the corner. For my family, it is our preferred way to get to our resort with our kids.  

    If you're looking for other options besides Disney’s Magical Express, there are some paid ride-share services like Uber and Lyft. While I’ve never used this option to get from the airport to my resort, I have used both of these options within the Walt Disney World Resort and it is my preferred method of travel when I’m not using Disney Transportation Services. When booking a ride with Uber and Lyft, you can request a car that has child car seats in it. This would be my first choice if I was not using Disney’s Magical Express. 

    Another option available to you would be to use a company called Mears. You may have seen their yellow taxis or shuttles parked at the resorts as they are very popular in the Orlando area. They have an app just like Uber and Lyft and a wide variety of vehicle options to choose from. You can choose from a taxi, shuttle, luxury sedan, luxury suv, luxury van and even a limousine! 

    Well Kelsey, I hope one of these options helps make your trip extra special.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
