Here’s your Disney World airport transportation guide!
Mears Connect driven by, Sunshine Flyer
Standard Service: Think of this as your friendly neighborhood bus, but with a sprinkle of Disney magic! It’s a shared ride, so you’ll get to meet fellow Disney vacationers along the way. A little wait at the airport, a few stops at other hotels, and voilà – you’re at your Disney resort! Prices are pretty sweet too, ranging from $16-21 for adults and $12-15 for the kiddos (3-9 years) per one-way trip. Little ones under two ride for free!
Express Service: Want to feel like Disney royalty? This is your go-to! Minimal wait, a ride straight to your hotel, no stops. It’s like having your own fairy godmother on wheels. This exclusive ride costs $250 for up to four passengers (round trip), with extra buddies at $55 each.
Rent a Car
Feeling adventurous? Rent a car right at MCO. Choose from big names like Alamo, Avis, Budget, and more. Or, explore off-site options with a quick shuttle ride. Remember to consider parking fees and your travel plans around Florida when picking your ride.
Town Car or Limo Service
Want to kickstart your Disney experience with a touch of luxury? Book a Town Car or Limo! Customize your ride with car seats, snacks, and even pit stops. Services like Happy Limo and Tiffany Town Car are ready to make your journey special. Rates vary, so pick what suits your style and budget.
Good old yellow cabs are still around to whisk you away to your Disney dream. Easy to find at the airport or just a call away from your hotel. Mears, the same folks behind the magical shuttle services, also operate many taxis in the area.
Uber or Lyft? Both are great choices for a quick hop to your hotel or around the Disney parks. Just download the app and you’re set. If you need special accommodations like wheelchair access, consider booking a shuttle or limo for peace of mind. Prices can vary based on demand and time of day, but on average it’s about $40 each way for a standard car.
Take the Train
While there’s no direct train to WDW yet, keep an ear out for Brightline’s future plans. A train ride to Disney? Now that’s something to look forward to!
What About Disney’s Magical Express?
This beloved “free” bus service, which gracefully connected the airport with Disney World Resort Hotels, concluded its rides at the end of 2021, after over 15 years of creating magical beginnings and endings for countless Disney vacations.
While we bid adieu to the Magical Express, the magic of Disney travel continues with a variety of new, for-pay options. Whether you’re looking for a shared shuttle experience with Mears Connect, the luxury of a private SUV or limo, the independence of a rental car, or the convenience of a ride share, your journey to the happiest place on Earth can still be filled with excitement and anticipation. So, pack your bags, choose your ride, and get ready to create new magical memories!
