    I know this is way soon to determine, but do you know if this park reservation system will be in place indefinite? Also, the Magical Express will be discontinuing as of next January, what would/will be the best option for my family price wise?

    Hello Alyse!

    Welcome back to planDisney! It is a pleasure to answer another question coming your way and help you as you plan your next Disney adventure!

    The Disney Park Pass system was introduced last year as a tool to manage theme park attendance during the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort. The system has been recently extended and is currently accepting reservations up to the second week of January 2023, but we still do not know if it will be in place indefinitely. As we continue to adapt to the current situation and to unexpected changes that may occur, I recommend that you keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates related to all-things Disney Parks, including the Disney Park Pass system.

    Disney’s Magical Express has always been one of my favorite benefits as a Disney Resort hotel Guest. As an international visitor, I love arriving at Orlando International Airport after a long-haul flight and not worrying about driving, so now I am also looking into different options for my family of four when we visit in 2022. My fellow panelist Priscila has recently given great advice on other transportation options, and I believe my family will most likely use a ride-share service like Uber and Lyft because it is fast and it seems like a good option price-wise. These companies even offer online calculators that help you estimate the cost of your trip, and you can compare their prices with other available transportation services. I believe that the final choice will depend on the number of people in your travel party, if you are bringing strollers and how much luggage you will have. I personally don't bring a stroller from home anymore, as I prefer to rent through the Disney Featured Provider.

    Alyse, remember that guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel still enjoy complimentary transportation throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, so I highly recommend Being Our Guest and staying in the middle of the magic!

    Thank you for stopping by once again! I hope this helps you while planning and that you come back to visit us real soon for more tips and advice.

    Best magical wishes,
