    We are looking to book for Summer 2022 and I was wondering two things. Firstly, can we book transportation from the airport as it looks like the Magical Express will no longer be available. Secondly, can we add meal plans to the amount on the offer?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer!

    Thank you for stopping by with great questions! We are thrilled to assist you as you plan a magical holiday at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    As you are aware, Disney’s Magical Express service will stop operating in 2022. I also have reservations for a Disney holiday in 2022, and I plan on using rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. I have already used both companies in the past and did not have any issues. As an international visitor, I prefer to use a rideshare service because it is a convenient and fast way to travel to my Disney Resort hotel from the airport after a long-haul flight.

    There are private transportation companies you are welcome to hire, and please note that Mears Transportation Group, which currently operates Disney’s Magical Express, has recently announced it will launch Mears Connect, a shuttle service that will connect the airport to Walt Disney World Resort hotels starting in January 2022. I recommend visiting their website to sign up for news and updates.

    As for Disney Dining Plans, they are unfortunately unavailable at this time due to physical distancing, reduced capacity, and limited availability of certain dining experiences. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future updates and announcements. When Disney Dining Plans become available once again, Disney Resort hotel Guests will be able to add them to their reservations.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Jennifer! Please visit our Panel Extras for more tips and advice, and stop by once again if you have additional questions!

    Best magical wishes,
