    Do you offer rides from the airport?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jami.

    The World's Most Magical Celebration is currently underway and guess what? You're invited! From the mesmerizing Beacons of Magic to the Fab 50 Character Collection, there's certainly something there that wasn't there before. Also, did you know that the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is also happening? You'll love the gorgeous gardens and terrific topiary displays. There are also some pretty fantastic outdoor kitchens too. Bon appetite!

    Jami, due to supply chain shortages around the country, it's hard to get a hold of pixie dust at the moment. Otherwise, I'd suggest thinking of a happy thought and flying to Walt Disney World from the airport. But alas! You'll have to try a more "normal" method of transportation. Although Disney doesn't offer rides to and from the airport anymore, they are a number of different options for you to consider:

    Shuttle Services
    There are two different, but great shuttle services to choose from. The first option is Mears Connect (this company used to run the now-retired Disney Magical Express). The second shuttle service option is Sunshine Flyer. This service has a very cool 1920s passenger cars and train locomotives theme. It's a lot of fun! I'd encourage you to check out both websites and compare prices.

    Many people choose to get to Walt Disney World Resort from the airport using a rideshare service, like Uber or Lyft. All you need to do is download their respective apps and make a booking at a time that works best for you. The advantage of using a rideshare over a shuttle service is that you can leave when you're ready and you don't have to wait for other Guests. You're also taken straight to your Resort, instead of having to stop at multiple Resorts along the way.

    You can also book a cab to take up to nine people. This will typically cost you more than a rideshare service though.

    Rental Car
    There are a number of rental car companies at Orlando International Airport. Many people choose this option so that they have more flexibility. However, just note that there is an overnight fee to park at each Disney Resorts Collection hotel. So the cost can certainly add up if you rent a car.

    I hope that's helpful, Jami. Have a magical vacation!
