    We are flying in to the Sanford airport, any suggestions for transportation to our resort, Port Orleans FQ? We've always used Magical Express but since they don't pickup from Sanford, looking for other options.

    Hey there, Kimberly!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your transportation question. Guests flying into Orlando Sanford International Airport do not have access to Disney's Magical Express Service. However, there a couple of ways you can get to Walt Disney World Resort from this airport. 

    Some guests choose to rent a car at the airport. Presently, there are nine different rental companies that offer cars at this location. You could rent a car for your entire vacation or for a single day to drive to or from the airport. If you plan to do the single day rentals, it may make sense to rent from Alamo Rent-A-Car or National Car Rental because these two companies have rental desks on Walt Disney World Resort property (at the Car Care Center and at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort).

    Personally, I would arrange for an inexpensive private car service to pick my family up at Orlando Sanford International Airport. There are many companies that transport guests from this airport to Walt Disney World Resort. You can find them by searching online for "Ground Transportation Sanford Airport." I have used Mears Transportation many times. If you call them or book online several days in advance of your arrival, they can have a driver waiting for you when your plane lands. They'll help you with your luggage and bring a car seat or two if your family requires them. You can also pre-pay so you don't need to have your wallet handy at the curb. You can even add a gratuity in advance, if you wish. This is definitely a low-stress way to reach Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter from Orlando Sanford International Airport.

    Wishing you many magical memories on your upcoming trip,
