    How do I plan transportation from Orlando airport to AK?

    Hello Dorothy!

    Wow, it looks like you are planning to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort. It is a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort. I have had the opportunity to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort many times, and I love the Resort theme!

    As of January 1st, 2022, Disney's Magical Express is no longer offered for transportation from the Orlando International Airport to the Resorts of Walt Disney World. There are many options to get from the Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort to begin your vacation. Here are four of the many ways to get to your Walt Disney World Resort:

    1. A rideshare service such as Lyft or Uber which are easy to book using their phone apps
    2. A shuttle service such as Mears Connect (a bus and taxi service). You can use the Mears mobile app or call (407)-422-2222 to book this service or try the Sunshine Flyer (a new Orlando airport bus shuttle service to Walt Disney World Resorts)
    3. A car service where you get a private vehicle with a driver to get you to your Resort. This option may be more expensive, but it could be the fastest option to get to your Walt Disney World Resort
    4. A rental car from any of the rental car agencies at the Orlando International Airport (keep in mind there is a nightly parking fee at all the Walt Disney World Resorts if you have a vehicle, and there are tolls on some of the roads that lead from the Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is magical!
