Earlier this year, Disney announced that the Magical Express will be discontinued in January of 2022.
Mears, the company that operates the Magical Express for Disney, later announced that they will be offering a new transportation service that will essentially replace the Magical Express. Previously, Mears’ new service was set to become available for booking in May of 2021, but it seems like things may have changed.
Mears Connect is the NEW service that will be offered by Mears for guests looking for a Magical Express replacement. It will start being offered in January of 2022. Mears notes that it will provide the “same reliable, safe, express service” for guests looking to travel to and from the airport and the Disney Resort area.
Previously, Mears’ website noted that guests would be able to make their reservations through Mears Connect starting in May of 2021.
The Mears website has since changed, however. It now notes that you’ll be able to make your reservation through Mears Connect starting “summer 2021” and says that it will be “accepting reservations soon.”
Considering that we are near the end of May and reservations are not yet available, it appears the start date on which these reservations will become available may be slightly delayed.
In the meantime, guests can continue to enjoy the Magical Express until it is discontinued next year. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more updates on this and let you know what we find.
