    Does a shuttle bus pick us up at airport and take us to our hotel?

    Hi Vicki! Sometimes a ride from the airport to your resort hotel is the only thing standing between you and the start of a magical vacation! So, let’s get you to your resort and let the magic begin!

    In previous years, the Walt Disney World Resort included Disney’s Magical Express as part of a Guest’s vacation package. The service provided airport-to-resort transportation. That service was discontinued a few years ago. Guests now have the flexibility of planning the most convenient transportation option for their travel party.

    Vicki, I’m including a helpful transportation link to the Walt Disney World Resort website in this answer. Once you arrive on that page there is a link at the bottom of the page. Once you click that link you will be directed away from the Walt Disney World Resort website to a company that provides transportation from the airport to hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! This is the service that my family typically uses when arranging transportation from the airport to our “Disney home.” That is just one option available to you!

    If you want to explore additional transportation options, I recommend using an internet search for “transportation from airport to Disney World.” That search will provide a variety of companies that offer service from the airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. You can also explore various rideshare companies that offer transportation between the airport and Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

    A few years ago, we arrived at Orlando International Airport on Christmas night. We wanted a quick ride to our resort hotel, so I booked a private car service to pick us up at the airport and take us directly to our resort hotel. The service was very easy to book. Our driver communicated with us via text upon our arrival to the airport until we arrived at his van. He was incredibly courteous! We had a great experience.

    These are just a few options to consider! I hope you find some of these recommendations helpful!

    And, don't forget, a great perk of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel vacation is complimentary transportation around the entire Walt Disney World Resort via bus, Monorail, the Disney Skyliner, and by boat!

    Happy Planning!
