    What is the fastest and most cost effective method of transportation from the airport to Disney resorts? We do have the option of using the Magical Express, but I'm afraid we will waste too much time.

    Hi Carrie,

    Thanks for writing.  In my opinion, Disney's Magical Express is absolutely the most cost effective and quickest way to get to your resort from Orlando International Airport.  Regarding cost, you can't beat free! This baggage and transportation service is available to all guests staying at a Disney resort.  As for timing, by using Magical Express, you can bypass the baggage claim area at the airport, and head directly to your designated bus.  This can be a huge timesaver.  Before Magical Express was offered, I can remember anxiously waiting for our luggage to come around the designated baggage carousel, and taking bets with my husband over whether our bags would be last or second to last to pop out! 

    If you prefer not to use Magical Express, you can either rent a car from one of the on-site car rental facilities at the airport or use a Taxi/Shuttle Service.  Mears Transportation ( is a local provider can can transport you to your resort.  Depending upon where on property you are staying, a taxi will cost between $50-$60 dollars each way.

    Whichever method you chose to transport you to your vacation destination, have a wonderful trip!
