Saratoga Springs Pool

    Johnathan from CA Asked

    Hi, we are staying at the Saratoga Springs resort March 26-31. I noticed there was no option for the Magical Express shuttle to and from the airport. Is this still offered? Trying to figure out if we need a rental car. Thank you for your assistance.

    Greetings from planDisney, Johnathan! Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    Johnathan, as a Disney Vacation Club Member, I consider Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa a hidden gem in the Disney Resorts Collection and I'm excited to hEAR that you're planning a stay! I enjoyed a few nights at this property just this past summer and I'm always delighted with the walking path to Disney Springs

    Now, Johnathan, in order to enjoy all there is to love about Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, you'll first need to get there! Disney's Magical Express will officially retire December 31st of this year, which unfortunately means that will not be an option for your trip. My family will also be traveling in 2022 and we have been considering how best to get to our resort. One option (that I believe will be popular) is using Mears Connect. Mears is the company that previously operated Disney's Magical Express and they will be launching their own service (for a fee). On past trips (at our own cost) we have also used a rideshare service, like uber or lyft, to get to our Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Another option would be to rent a car (which you can pick up at Orlando International Airport). On our most recent trip in October we rented a car and found it a quick and easy process. Johnathan, it is important to note that if you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, parking is complimentary, however if not, please see the parking fee schedule HERE

    Johnathan, I hope this information is helpful as you're making decisions about arrival. With the 50th anniversary celebrations lasting throughout 2022, you're bound to experience a little extra pixie dust and I hope you can enjoy every moment. 

    Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions.
