    We are staying at Disney world but check out 4 days before we fly out. We want to use Mears for transport back to the airport. Will Disney Hotel security allow us back on property to do this without a current reservation?

    Bonjour James!

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thank you so much for sending us your magical question! I am honoured that you decided to make us a part of your magical vacation again, and I am so excited to be helping a fellow Canadian guest. Your vacation is also coming so soon; how exciting! Can you believe that in just one short month, you will be soaking in the sun at the Walt Disney World Resort? The last month before your trip always goes by so fast, so don't worry when counting down the days!

    Now, let's talk about your Mears Connect reservation. To answer your question, you will still be able to enter the Resort you put as your pick-up location even after your Resort hotel reservation has ended. Indeed, you will have to let the agent at the gate know that this Resort was set as your pick-up location. In this case, I would make sure to have your Mears Connect confirmation on hand just in case, but they may only ask to see a piece of government-issued photo ID. Then, you will be able to use your Mears Connect reservation and go back to the Orlando International Airport!

    Once your reservations are all settled, that is when the real fun begins! I see that you will be visiting during one of my favourite times of the year: the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival! Indeed, I would highly suggest making a theme park reservation for EPCOT to visit the festival, as it will make your vacation unique and extra magical. There is nothing quite like the view of EPCOT in full bloom, the themed topiaries, the seasonal food booths and the limited edition souvenirs! And with unique activities, you are sure to have the best day ever. Did you know that some of your favourite artists take the stage each night as part of the Garden Rocks Concert Series? I also always love participating in the seasonal scavenger hunts, so watch out for Spike the Bee throughout the World Showcase. Maps and stickers can be purchased at select merchandise stores, and you will even receive a limited-edition prize upon completion!

    I hope this was helpful, James, and that you and your family will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. It is always my pleasure to help fellow Canadian Guests like me!

    Have a magical day,
