    We are starting to plan our vacation for April 2022. So the Disney resorts have services to pick you up at the airport or do we have to arrange that on our own?

    Hey there, Tara. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I see that you have a trip planned to the Most Magical Place on Earth early next year, I know you've got to be getting so excited. 

    Tara, Disney's Magical Express Service from the airport to Walt Disney World is being discontinued at the end of this year. At this time, there are no plans for another service like this provided by Walt Disney World. You'll need to arrange your own transportation from the airport to Walt Disney World and back again. 

    I do have a few ideas for you, Tara. The first, and what I actually use right now, is a ride-share service. I find this to be a quick, convenient and fairly affordable option. Both major ride-share companies service this area and are pretty comparable in price but I do like to check both before calling a car. Sometimes there is a discount or coupon being offered by one of the companies. If you aren't comfortable using a ride-share service, you can also find traditional taxis for hire at the airport. They are always waiting to pick people up but I do find them to be a bit more expensive than the ride-shares. Another option would be to hire a car ahead of time to pick you up. A quick internet search will turn up several companies in the area. You can choose from a Towncar, SUV, passenger van and if you were really feeling fancy - even a limousine. Lastly, Mears is the company that Walt Disney World contracted out Disney's Magical Express Service to. Since that contract has ended, they've said they are going to offer their own service called Mears Connect that will service the area. 

    I hope this helps give you some ideas on how to get to Walt Disney World next spring. If you have any other questions while planning, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! Also, if you haven't already head over to Instagram and give the new planDisney page a like.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
