    We are going to WDW in July and I'm flying into Orlando Sandford Airport which I didn't realize till after I booked it. Will they pick me up from that airport if I'm staying at one of the Disney resorts?

    Hi Kaitlin,

    At this time, Disney's Magical Express operates only between Walt Disney World and Orlando International Airport. The Sanford Airport is about 55 miles northeast of Walt Disney World and is 60 to 90 minutes away, depending on traffic.

    I understand that there are a number of shuttle services that operate between the Sanford airport and Disney. You may also want to explore how much a taxi or Uber service would be. There are a few websites that help you compare transportation service from that airport. You can find them by searching "transportation from Sanford airport to Disney."

    You may find that a budget rental car might be more economical than the cost of a shuttle. (You will park free at Walt Disney World if you are staying in a Disney resort.) I've frequently had good luck getting a great deal on a rental car using a travel service such as Priceline or Hotwire.

    I hope those suggestions are helpful. Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Kaitlin. Please let us know if we can help in any other way as you make your plans. Enjoy your vacation!
