    Does the Magical Express run from the Orlando/Sanford (SFB) airport? If not, any suggestions?

    Hi Julie!

    Currently, Disney's Magical Express does not pick up Guests at the Sanford airport.  Sanford airport is about 55 miles from Walt Disney World, which is about an hour to hour and a half drive.  I have not flown into the Sanford airport myself but many fellow panelists have.  I have polled them and they all agree that shuttle service was the most economical option.  You can find a list of shuttle providers on the Sanford airport's webpage. (  Once you visit the page click on the "ground transportation" section and the list of companies along with phone numbers will appear.   When you call or visit them on their own personal websites be sure to inquire about round trip fares to the Walt Disney World Resort.   

    Other options my pals suggested were taking a taxi (the highest priced option), or renting a car.  When you rent a car you would have advantage of having your own transportation throughout your vacation.  And the price may not be much more than a shuttle service.   I always find a rental car convenient when we have early morning dining reservations reserved at another Disney Resort hotel..  It is so easy to drive directly to a Resort hotel rather than transfer at a theme park as you would most likely have to do using Disney transportation.

    Julie, we thank you for stopping by with your great question about traveling to Walt Disney World.  If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again.  We love to lend a helping hand whenever we have the chance.
