    Lori from ME Asked

    Do we need magic bands? Will there be transportation from the airport available on January 9th?

    Hi Lori, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for visiting us with your question about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort.  It looks like you will be starting off 2022 at the "Most Magical Place on Earth", I bet you are so excited to make some wonderful memories while celebrating the new year. 

    Disney's Magical Express will be officially retiring on January 1, 2022.  A comparable service called Mears Connect will be available for guests at an extra cost and can be booked online right now.  The service is run by the same company that took care of Disney's Magical Express, so I do believe that it will be very similar to what we are used to.  If you would prefer, you could always choose to reserve your favorite ride-share program, hire a car service or even rent a car for the duration of your visit. 

    MagicBands are available for guests during their stay at an additional cost as well.  While they aren't necessary, I find that they are a convenient accessory to wear in the Theme Parks so you are able to remain as hands-free as possible, without having to carry around key cards. 

    I hope you have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World Resort this January, Lori.  If you have any other questions, please come back to planDisney, we are always happy to help.
