    Hello I was wondering if there is a bus that’ll pick us up from the airport to bring us to Disney world? We aren’t sure how or what to book! Thank you

    Hi Zoe! It sounds like your magic carpet might be out of commission! Let’s see if we can find a way to get you from Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    In previous years, complimentary transportation was provided from the airport to your resort hotel via Disney’s Magical Express. That service took its final drive in January 2021. Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort can now choose from several options when traveling to their resort hotel.

    Head to any search engine on your internet browser and enter “Orlando airport to Disney World.” You will find a variety of transportation carriers that will be able to get you from the airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel! 

    For recent visits, my family has used a bus service that we booked in advance of our travel. Upon arrival we went to the former Magical Express location and boarded the bus to our resort hotel! It was very convenient. I also found the prices charged to be quite reasonable. The bus services will usually stop at multiple resort hotels, so your arrival might be delayed if you’re not the first stop. I don’t mind this because it gives me a chance to see other hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection that I might consider for future visits! Most bus services will also offer a “direct to your resort” option which will cost more than the traditional bus service. We have also used a private van service which we also booked prior to our travel. Our driver was punctual, and friendly, and drove us directly to our resort.

    Don't forget, once you arrive at your Disney Resort Hotel, you will have complimentary transportation via Disney bus service, Monorail, Disney Skyliner, and even boats! This is a great perk of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel!

    Zoe, I hope these tips are helpful as you wait for your magic carpet to get repaired. Until then, there are many options available for you!

    Happy Planning!
