    So your vacation packages include flights or so I have to separately book my flight?

    Welcome to planDisney, Renee! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. It looks like you have plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort right around the holiday season, and I think that's the perfect time of year for a magical vacation. The Theme Parks and Disney Resorts Collection hotels are sprinkled with that extra layer of Pixie Dust that makes the festive season so magical!

    Renee, flights are not included as part of booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package. Your vacation package will include your accommodations and your tickets, but you will need to book your own return airfare. I fly to Orlando from my home in Texas a few times a year, so I have some great tips for booking flights! First, I'll check to see if there are any flights available where I can use my frequent flyer points. I also like to book my travel with an airline that lets you modify your flight without an extra fee! That way, I can keep an eye on the price and make changes if something cheaper becomes available. It never hurts to keep looking!

    Once you arrive at Orlando International Airport, there are quite a few options for getting from the terminal to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Mears Connect is a shuttle service that offers 24-hour service, so it's great if you have an early or late flight. You can also book a private transfer, rent a car, or use your favorite rideshare service! It can take about 30 to 45 minutes to get from the airport to Walt Disney World Resort, so keep that in mind when planning your transportation. 

    I hope this answers your question, Renee, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
