    Hello. I was wondering if there is any Disney sponsored transportation from the smaller Orlando airport to the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Hello Valerie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It's always a pleasure to help out a returning Guest.  I hope you are enjoying making plans for your next Walt Disney World adventure.

    Orlando Sanford International Airport is located about 50 miles from the Walt Disney World Resort.   This airport is very small and does not house as many airlines as Orlando International.   It is becoming a popular spot because of many non-stop low cost airlines that are now flying into it.   One such airline recently started service in my hometown and the fares are really wonderful.   I can see why you asked such a good question.   Currently Disney does not offer any transportation between Orlando Sanford International Airport and the Disney Resort Hotels.   You would need to either rent a car, or use a car service.  I have looked up a few car services and they run about 200 dollars round trip.   You may be able to find a flight into Orlando International taking into account those fees.   Disney's Magical Express is a complimentary motor coach service between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort Hotel.   It's a great perk to Guests who fly into Orlando's busiest airport.   If you could find a flight for less than the 200 dollar difference in price of renting a car it would be well worth it.   

    I hope this has helped.  If you have any other questions about your travels,  you know where to find us.
