Even though the Magical Express service will be discontinued this year, you’ll still be able to take a shuttle bus or passenger van from Orlando Airport to Disney World. Shuttles and vans can be a great option and they may end up being the most economical choice depending on how large your family or group is.
There’s also a brand new option from Mears and it’s being branded as a Magical Express replacement (for a fee, of course). This new service is called Mears Connect.
The new route debuts on January 1st, 2022, the same date Disney’s Magical Express service is officially discontinued. The route will connect Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
Mears promises that the new bus service will provide the same type of reliable, safe, and express service that we have become accustomed to from the Magical Express.
Reservations are now available. Pricing for the Mears Connect is as follows:
PER ADULTS PER CHILD
One Way $16.00 $13.50
Round Trip $32.00 $27.00
Round Trip – $200.00 for up to 4 passengers ($55 per additional passenger)
Please note that shuttle busses will make more than one stop. If you are looking for expedited service to and from the resort, you may want to look elsewhere OR you can book the Express Service. Contact The Vacationeer for more information.
The Sunshine Flyer
The Sunshine Flyer is the newest shuttle option between Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World Resort. The service was launched by Transportation Management Services (TMS) and is themed around old-fashioned passenger cars and train engines.
Service on The Sunshine Flyer will begin on February 1, 2022. Fares are comparable to Mears Connect: $17.00 per adult, $12.50 per child each way. Tickets must be booked at least 4 days ahead of arrival.
