    Kandi from MI Asked

    What are my options in 2022 to get from the airport to my Disney hotel. Also will I be able to store my luggage at my hotel on my departure day?

    Hi there, Kandi!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    Through the end of 2021, Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels are provided with the benefit of complimentary transportation to their Disney resort from Orlando International Airport via Disney's Magical Express. The service is being retired in 2022, so here's a look at the other options that will be available:

    • Mears Transportation Group has announced that they will be offering a direct shuttle service to Walt Disney World Resort hotels beginning January 1, 2022. They will be offering two tiers of services -  Standard (a shared ride with stops along the way) and Premium (a direct ride to your resort hotel with no stops). Pricing and more information can be found on the Mears Connect website.
    • Taxi service is available from Orlando International Airport. Taxi services are located on both A and B sides of the Terminal, in the center of the Arrivals Level (Level 2).
    • Ride-Sharing providers such as Uber and Lyft pick up passengers at the and of the Arrivals curb on Level 2.
    • There are around 8-10 rental car companies available, located on the A and B sides of the Terminal on the Ground Transportation Level (Level 1). 
    On your departure day, if you have a late flight and would like to spend a few extra hours exploring the magic of Walt Disney World Resort, you can absolutely have your luggage stored for you at your resort. When you're ready to check out, you can either call Bell Services to come and get your bags from your room or drop them off yourself at the Bell Services desk. They will issue you a claim ticket with your name and the number of bags you've checked. Just present the ticket to the Cast Member at Bell Services when you return to retrieve your bags. I typically tip the awesome Cast Members who help provide this convenient service!

    I hope this helps answer some of your questions about an upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. 
    Have a magical day!
