Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are the most convenient way to get from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World.
You simply use the phone app to arrange for someone to pick you up at the airport, and then a driver will appear within minutes to take you to your resort. Since your credit card is linked to your account. there’s never any exchange of cash like most traditional taxis. The entire process is simple and quick. And it’s cheap, too!
As we stated in our recent “How Much Does an Uber Cost from Orlando Airport to Disney World” article, a standard Uber from the airport to Disney World will cost you roughly $35. This can jump to above $40 if you request a special type of vehicle.
For a family of 4 or 5, your best bet may be an UberXL, which will cost you just over $50 between the airport and most of Disney’s resort hotels. The fancier Uber Black option will run you just over $90 per trip.
You’ll also pay a little more for vehicles equipped with car seats or if they are designed to accommodate pets.
One of the clear benefits of taking an Uber or Lyft (rather than a shuttle bus) is how direct the service is. A ride from the airport to Disney takes less than 30 minutes and there are no stops along the way. Plus, most vehicles are at least as comfortable as a taxi service (and less expensive).
Please note that the cost of a ride is subject to increase during peak times. This “surge pricing” happens when there are more people requesting rides than there are enough cars to take them all. This can happen when parks open and close, during bad weather, special events, or other instances that cause an unusually high volume of people to request a ride.
The rideshare option may be somewhat limiting if you have a lot of people in your group or if you have an unusually large amount of luggage. If you’re going to Disney with a large family or group, then you probably won’t all fit in a single car and you may do better with the shuttle bus or private vehicle option.
