    How do I make a reservation for the Magical Express from the airport to our hotel on property? We arrive on 1/15/2022.

    Hi Amelia!

    Bravo for having a Walt Disney World vacation all set for 2022. I’ll bet you are counting down the days until your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. It feels good to have all the details about transportation all ironed out in advance, so I applaud you making this a priority. Then, you can just show up and let someone else get you to Disney! 

    Sadly, Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be offered starting with arrivals on January 1, 2022 and beyond. Guess it will officially be in the “Disney vault” then. So you will need to make your own arrangements for private transfers as Disney’s Magical Express will not be available on your travel dates. 

    Your options would be to use the Mears Connect service, a ride sharing company, taxi, or renting a car. Be mindful that if you decide to rent a car, there are fees for parking your vehicle at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Mears Connect is the most similar to the retiring Disney's Magical Express service if you still want to have that same feel to your vacation transportation. The only change is that this service is no longer complimentary. 

    I hope that this helps you in making all the plans on getting to and from Walt Disney World Resort. Wishing you a spectacular vacation and a great start to the new year!

    Happy Holidays!
