    Can someone please tell me the best (cheapest) way to get to a resort from Sanford Airport? Thanks

    Bonjour Joyce!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I was so excited when I saw your question in our queue as I am always so happy to answer questions from fellow Canadians. Plus, having grown up in Quebec, that practically makes us neighbours, right? I cannot wait for you to experience the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort this year, and, besides, there's no better way to escape the chilly Canadian autumn than by going to Florida! 

    When it comes to transportation, most options found at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) are also available, such as taxi or ride-share services and car rentals. I have found that car rentals were incredibly convenient when visiting the parks, as your theme park parking will be complimentary since you are staying at a Disney Resort. Having your car also makes getting from your Resort to the theme parks much easier, and I always love getting some extra snacks at local grocery stores to keep in my room. Although the new Mears Connect service is not currently available at the Sanford International Airport, a quick Google search will also show you different shuttle services available. If you are looking for the cheapest option, however, taxis and ride-share services, as well as airport shuttles, appear to be relatively the same price and to be amongst the most affordable options. However, I would recommend keeping an eye on ride-share prices closer to your visit as these prices are highly dependent on demand.

    Now, let's talk about the magical offerings you will be able to experience during your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you're a foodie like me, check out the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. I love that themed gift cards can be purchased on-site to make staying on budget much easier! Also at EPCOT, the new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy - Cosmic Rewind, opening on May 27th, 2022, is perfect for the thrill-seekers in your Ohana. Over at Magic Kingdom Park, prepare to have a spooktacular time as grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! Tickets go on sale starting on May 18th, 2022, so mark this date in your calendar. Lastly, we cannot forget about all the magic of the 50th anniversary! Stay until after sunset to experience the EARidescent glow of the Beacons of Magic, and check out all the special treats, activities and souvenirs that are only available during the World's Most Magical Celebration. With all of these incredible new offerings, your vacation is sure to be unforgettable!

    I hope this was helpful, Joyce, and that you and your fellow Mouseketeers will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. Ever wonder if we can answer a question for you? The answer is always: Yes, we Can-ada!

    Have a magical day, neighbour!
