    Why is Magical Express being discontinued in 2022? Is there something that will replace it?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lisa!

    Thank you for bringing your question to us. It is a pleasure to assist you as you dream of a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    As you are aware, Disney’s Magical Express service will stop operating in 2022. Travelers have more options to choose from than ever regarding transportation, including rideshare services. I have reservations for a Disney vacation in 2022, and I plan on using rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. I have already used both companies and did not have any issues. I prefer to use rideshare services because they offer a flexible, convenient, and fast way to travel to my Disney Resort hotel from Orlando International Airport. While there aren’t plans to offer Disney-operated transportation to and from the airport, please note that complimentary transportation options like buses, the monorail, and the Disney Skyliner will continue to be available within the Walt Disney World Resort.

    There are private transportation companies you can also hire. Mears Transportation Group, which currently operates Disney’s Magical Express, has recently announced it will launch Mears Connect, a shuttle service that will connect the airport to Disney Resort hotels starting in January 2022. I recommend visiting their website to sign up for news and updates on this service.
