    Hi, between Mears and Sunshine Flyer, which one is better? Do they always show up for your pick up time going to the airport? We stayed at a Disney resort and Mears did not show up. Is Sunshine Flyer reliable? Is it better to buy tix at MCO or online? thx.

    Hi Angela,

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for your question! 

    There are a ton of different options when it comes to transportation from the Orlando International Airport (MCO). In the past, I’ve used rental cars, ride share services, and the Mears Connect. I don’t have experience to speak to the Sunshine Flyer, but I would suggest doing what’s best for your family based on your research! If you’ve already experienced one type of transportation, you could try another one or you could try the same one again. 

    I think everyone is adapting to the new options around transportation from MCO, so if desired, you could use this as an opportunity to try multiple options. Then after your trip you can compare to see which is best for your use in the future! However, I do suggest booking in advance with either Mears Connect, Sunshine Flyer, or through a rental service just so your spot is reserved for the days you need. If you choose to do a ride share service, you can book that once you’re in Orlando.

    Once you get to the Walt Disney World Resort, remember that you can use Resort Transportation throughout your entire vacation. And don't forget, Minnie Vans are back!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your upcoming trip! If you have any other vacation or planning questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
