    We are excited for our upcoming trip to Disney in late August! We are trying to plan out our travel arrangements, we will be flying in with small children. Is the SunshineFlyer a recommended means of transportation from the airport to the Disney Resorts?

    Hello, Haylee,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney. I'm so excited to read you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in August. The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be up and running for a chance to experience a global culinary experience as well as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for a spooktacular fun evening!

    When you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, Sunshine Flyers is a private company that transports guests to and from Walt Disney World from the airport. While it is located at the airport, it is outside under cover, but it can get hot there.  Mears Destination Services is another company at the airport that is inside the airport. It is quite similar to Sunshine Flyers, so it may just be a matter of preference.  My experience has been positive with both companies. 

    The Orlando International Airport website also includes a list of private transportation companies.  If you visit the website and look under Parking & Transportation at the top menu bar and select Ground Transportation, you will be able to find a list of Vehicles for Hire. You may also want to consider using a ride-sharing service like Lyft/Uber or a taxi cab. 

    Please let us know if you have any further questions. Wishing you a magical trip!
