    What options do we have to get from airport to resort next march since disney express is being discontinued

    Hi there, Christine!

    I'm so happy to hEAR you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation on the books for next spring. March is one of my very favorite times to visit!

    I was super bummed to hear that Disney's Magical Express would be retiring from service at the end of 2021. I've always counted on the complimentary transportation service to transport my family straight to our Disney Resort hotel from the Orlando International Airport (MCO). The service has had a good run, and they will be missed. 

    At this time, no "official" Disney transportation service has been announced to replace Disney's Magical Express, and  I encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and Walt Disney World on Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date news and announcements regarding transportation offerings for Guests.

    When Magical Express is officially retired, Guests will be able to choose from the following transportation options to travel from MCO to their Disney Resort hotel:

    - Mears Transportation Group will begin offering shuttle service to Walt Disney World Resort hotels beginning January 1, 2022. There will be two tiers of service available for purchase: Standard and Premium. You can find pricing and reservation information on the Mears Connect website. 

    - Ride Share Services, such as Uber and Lyft, have a passenger pickup area on Level 2, at the end of the Arrivals curb.

    - Car Rental Companies are located on both A and B sides of the terminal, on Level 1. To save time and money, make sure to rent your car ahead of time online. 

    - Taxi Services are available on both A and B sides of the Terminal, located in the center of the Arrivals area on Level 2. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please come back and ask us any other questions you think of before your trip!
