    Is there a shuttle from the airport to my Disney hotel?

    Hiya Carol, 

    It is great to see you back at planDisney. I do not know about you, but the minute my plane lands in Orlando, I can hardly wait to begin my Walt Disney World Resort vacation and want to find the easiest and quickest way to start my magical adventure. 

    Great news! There are a number of options to take you from the Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel so the fun can begin. Disney World has partnered with a local transportation company to provide convenient shuttle services from the airport to the resorts. MEARS Connect provides two options for shuttle services. The standard option is a shared ride service that makes a limited number of stops for a reasonable price. This means your shuttle will most likely make a few additional stops at resorts near your resort and your travel time will depend on the number of stops made. The express service is a direct service that operates between the airport and your direct resort. It will cost slightly more but since the shuttle does not stop at other resorts, it is a faster option. You can reach them at and advanced reservations are strongly suggested. 

    If you are looking for some additional options, there are a number of local companies that provide transportation options. One of our favorites is Sunshine Flyer. The prices and options are similar to Mears Connect, however this company offers a somewhat whimsical approach to your travel as the drivers are decked out like old time rail conductors. There are also plenty of private car options. We opted for this on our last trip as we were limited on travel time and trying to make it to an advanced dining reservations. While these options are more costly, the driver will you at the baggage area and take you directly to a waiting car. Since the car is just for your party, it is the fastest option and most companies even include an additional stop for the same price. This means if you want to stop for a few groceries along the way, this can typically be arranged. We recently used Happy Limousine and had a great experience, but you can find numerous options and reviews through a quick internet search. 

    I hope this helps you select the easiest option for your needs. If I can help with any additional planning tips, please stop back and see me
