    We have a trip booked mid January 2022 at the Rivera. What will our options be for transportation from and back to Orlando International?

    Bonjour Joseph!

    It is so lovely to see you here at planDisney! Here we love helping Guests experience the most magical Disney vacation possible. A stay at the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort, will be like a European dream come true. This resort is the epitome of luxury and elegance, channeling inspiration from the French and Italian Riviera. You will love the gorgeous archways, beautiful detailing, and stunning waterfront promenade.

    Disney’s Magical Express service will no longer operate in 2022, so I am glad that you are asking about alternative transportation options. Many transportation options will get you to Disney's Riviera Resort on your arrival date and back to Orlando International Airport on your departure date. The first popular option is a ridesharing service, such as Uber or Lyft. I have successfully used ridesharing services during my visits to Walt Disney World and found them to be a quick and convenient way to get around. Another option would be Mears Transportation Group, the current operator of Disney’s Magical Express. The shuttle services Mears Connect was recently announced and will offer transportation between Disney Resort hotels and Orlando International Airport starting January 2022.

    I would be amiss if I did not recommend the fabulous Topolino’s Terrace for a meal during your stay. The Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is the perfect way to start your day with elegant rooftop dining and spectacular views. I highly recommend that you consider booking advance dining reservations, as this restaurant is quite a popular choice amongst Guests.

    I hope that your stay at Disney’s Riviera Resort is magnifico! Have a wonderful time in The Most Magical Place on Earth, and remember, here at planDisney, we love answering your Disney vacation questions.
