    If I have a reservation with varsity for national dance team championship do I I need to book magic express for my girls or is that taken care of ?

    Hi Brea - welcome to planDisney!

    You and your girls must be so excited to compete on the national level at Walt Disney World!  It will certainly be an experience to remember!

    Unfortunately, Disney's Magical Express was discontinued at the end of 2021.  Oh, how I loved that service, especially when they handled the luggage.  Everything was so magical!  I do have some good news for you.  Mears Connect, the same bus company that operated Disney's Magical Express, took over this service.  I have used Mears Connect several times since Disney's Magical Express was discontinued and I find the transportation to be nearly the same.  Mears Connect does not handle luggage so you will need to bring all your luggage to the bus before boarding.

    I checked the Varsity website and I noticed under the "Travel and Transportation" section it states that transportation is not included in the hotel travel package to and from the airport. The recommendation is to reserve with Mears Connect and standard service is suggested.  You can make these reservations easily online at the Mears Connect website.

    Brea, I hope you find this information helpful and I wish the team the best of luck in February!  Have a magical competition!
