    What’s going to replace the Magic express. We plan on going to WDW in January 2022.

    Hi Mistie!

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    The good news is that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! The sad news is that we do not yet have details about what other transportation magic might come after Disney's Magical Express® ends for guests arriving in 2022 and beyond. Neither are my skills with the Force as sharp as they used to be. I could not see into that particular future. 

    As of now, guests have a number of private transportation options. We have used ride share services like Lyft and Uber. One year I priced a car service but decided against it because we enjoy Disney's Magical Express® so much! Of course, you could always rent a car. If you rent a car, remember to consider the parking costs.

    As you prepare to book your trip, remember to check the Special Offers periodically to see if there are any vacation package deals available for the dates of your visit. If you are still trying to select a resort hotel, do consider those that are within walking distance to one or more theme parks. On our last visit, we stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and made good use of the walking path to Magic Kingdom. We love Disney's Contemporary Resort because it also has a walking path to Magic Kingdom. And we also adore Disney's BoardWalk Villas because we can walk to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Mistie, keep an eye on the operational updates since change is inevitable. Know that my family considers Disney's Magical Express part of the magic that begins our Walt Disney World Resort stays, so we will surely miss the experience as well. Having said that, I am excited to see what is on the horizon! In the meantime, you have plenty of time to coordinate your super-suits to get ready for your next Incredible Disney Day!

    Magic and memories,
