    Do they still offer the pick up from the airport to the hotel, and if they do I know in the past they would take luggage to the hotel for you, do they still do that or do we pick up out luggage before loading into the bus?

    Hi there, Jasmine!  Welcome to planDisney!

    When it comes to planning your transportation from the airport to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, your wish is my command.  While I might not be able to find a magic carpet to whisk you away to Walt Disney World Resort, Jasmine, I can definitely show you the world of airport transportation options.

    Although transportation to and from Orlando International Airport is no longer complimentary with your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel stay, you have lots of options to get you from the airport to your home away from home.  You have many choices such as rental cars, ride-share services, and bus transportation.  You can explore these options in more depth on Orland International Airport's website.  I have used the Mears Connect bus service several times for transportation between the airport and my resort hotel.  This service functions similarly to the bus service that used to be provided by Walt Disney World Resort.  I have found Mears Connect to be easy to use, reliable, and affordable.  A quick internet search for Mears Connect will direct you to their booking website.  

    Please bare in mind that no matter which airport transportation option you decide to use, you will need to retrieve all of your luggage before you leave the airport and bring it with you to your resort hotel.  If your room is not yet ready when you arrive at your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, bell services will be happy to store your luggage while you go have some fun.  When you get to your resort hotel room, just give bell services a call and they will deliver your bags to you.  If your flight home is later in the day, you are also welcome to leave your bags with bell services on your check-out day as well.

    Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
