    We are staying at the Swan and Dolphin hotel for a conference but it looks like does not use Magical Express. Can you tell me what the best way is to get from airport to hotel? I loved Magical Express!!

    Hi Summer,

    How exciting that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort next November. I love this time of the year as the whole Resort starts to celebrate the Holidays.

    Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel are beautiful hotels located next to Disney's Boardwalk. I had the opportunity to visit them on a few occasions as a ConventionEAR. They do share some of the Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits like Extra Magic Hours, and include complimentary  to and from the Theme Parks and Disney Springs.

    To get to these sister hotels from Orlando International Airport, you have several options. You can rent a car from Alamo or National Car Rental and drop it off directly at the lobby of Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Other options include Mears Transportation, which offers shared van shuttle service or luxury sedans, and private services like Uber.

    One last tip: remember to make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days in advance, and FastPass+ up to 60 days before your Check-In. Happy planning!
