    (Staying at Resort) If our flight doesn't depart till after 8pm, and we have exhausted our time in the parks How frequently do Mears Connect arrive at pop century to take us back to the airport, so there's ample time to go through security?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I have used Mears Connect several times now when visiting Disney's Pop Century Resort, and I am glad to report that the rides have been smooth, seamless, and a great way to go to and from the airport in a comfortable and budget-conscious fashion!

    The good news for you is that Mears Connect does not simply visit the Disney resorts on some random schedule. They time their pickups specifically and individually to your schedule to return you to the airport based on your flight departure time. You will get a specific pickup time for your party, at your hotel. They set that time based on Orlando airport security needs, and a lot of experience over the years in knowing how early they have to get passengers back so that they have ample time to check in, get through security, and get to their gate. They do take international travel into consideration as well!

    BONUS TIP #1
    If you think your pick-up time is not going to give you enough time to get through security, you can contact them to ask for a pick-up time adjustment.

    BONUS TIP #2
    Did you know on your departure day that after you check out of your room in the morning, you can leave your bags at the Bell Services desk, and then head off to breakfast, or even to the parks for that final dose of magic? Just remember to gather them up before heading home. 

    BONUS TIP #3
    If on your arrival day, you get to your resort before your rooms are ready, the bell services desk can hold your luggage for you while you enjoy a day at the parks. Even if your adventures include returning to the resort late in the evening, the front desk staff can get you your bags before you head to your home in the magic!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
