    This is for a MearsConnect reservation for airport transport services. I’m not sure as to what departure time needs to be inputted for return flight. My flight leaves Orlando @4:13pm so is the departure time when the plane leaves or when leaving the hotel?

    Hi Roberta, welcome to planDisney!

    Mears Connect is a great option for Guests looking to travel between Orlando International Airport and a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or another select hotel. When inputting your flight information on the Mears Connect website, you should put in the time each flight is scheduled to take off. In your case, the departure time for your return flight is 4:13 p.m. This information allows you to be assigned an appropriate pickup time that is typically three hours before your departure time.

    As soon as you book a service with Mears Connect, you will receive an email confirmation. This email contains all of the important information about what you can expect leading up to your travel dates. For both your arrival and departure, you'll receive an additional email and text notification 23 hours in advance of your flight time. This communication includes your boarding pass with a QR code used for boarding your transportation. I recommend screenshotting your QR code for easy access. For departure, you should arrive at the designated pickup location 15 minutes prior to the scheduled hotel departure time listed on your boarding pass. 

    I hate good-byes, especially at Disney, so let's talk about the exciting things you're going to do when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. Make sure you've downloaded and familiarized yourself with the My Disney Experience mobile app. The app is your key to experiencing two of the newest thrills, TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. Both attractions can be experienced by joining the virtual queue and/or purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane

    In the words of Peter Pan, "You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!" Safe travels, Roberta, and hope to see you at planDisney again soon.

    Choose magic,
