    Is there a shuttle from Orlando airport to the resorts and back again.

    Welcome to planDisney, Emily! The Magical Express, which offered free airport transfers for Disney Resort hotel Guests, no longer operates. However, once you arrive at Walt Disney World, all transportation throughout the resort is complimentary. Disney's Skyliner, romantic ferry boats, and legendary Disney Buses will get you to your destination with a little sprinkling of pixie dust!

    For airport transfers, you have three main options: a taxi or rideshare, a bus or shuttle, or renting a car and driving yourself.

    Mears Connect offers bus shuttle services between Orlando Airport and Disney Resort hotels. You can pre-book this from home. It's a splendid option for larger groups, individuals travelling alone, and those who wish to leave the car seat at home. 

    Depending on your group size, rideshares and taxis can sometimes offer better value than a shuttle. This direct service might be quicker since they only transport your party. You can download apps like Lyft in advance to book such services. At Walt Disney World property, you can also book the iconic Minnie Van through the Lyft app—handily, these also have car seats ready to go if needed.

    The final option is car rental. Please remember that  Disney Resort Guests receive complimentary parking at their Resort and Theme Parks if you prefer the flexibility and convenience of having your own car during your stay.

    Emily, I hope this information helps today. Happy planning for your adventure, and you know where to find us at planDisney if you need anything further.

    Magic always,
