    Please can you advise the options and cost of transport - we are arriving at Sanford Airport and going to the Beach Club - 2 adults and a five year old.

    Hi, Glynis! Orlando Sanford International Airport is located northeast of Orlando and approximately an hour's drive from the WDW resort area. For further details, you can visit the airport's website at for driving directions and transportation information. Unfortunately, Disney's Magical Express does not provide complimentary airport service to the Sanford Airport, but you can contact DME's provider, Mears, at 407-422-4561 for specific questions on rates and pick-up/drop-off times/locations. Mears does provide shuttle service (for a fee) to/from Sanford and the WDW resort area.

    Personally, I would investigate renting a car since the commute from Sanford to the Beach Club is a relatively long drive. In addition, a rental car would give you flexibility should you need to pick up some supplies off property (which would be more economical) and while you are on WDW property (if you'd like to visit other resort areas).

    Let me know if you have more questions. You're going to love the Beach Club -- it's a beautiful resort in the middle of the action with a fantastic pool. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
