Walking through a parking lot at Disney World can feel like being stranded in the desert.
Alright, maybe that’s a little dramatic. Still, though, the parking lots are huge, it can take up to 10 minutes to get to and from your parked car, and the asphalt combined with the hot Florida sun has a strange way of making you feel like a cookie in a way-too-hot oven. It isn’t fun. However, that’s where the trams come in and save the day! Well, that’s where they come in and save the day in some cases. Let’s talk about it!
For many years, Disney World Resort guests had the opportunity to use Disney World Magical Express to travel to and from the airport. But in 2021, after the 2020 closure and reopening, Disney announced that this opportunity would be coming to an end.
As of January 1, 2022, Disney World discontinued the Magical Express airport transportation service. Here is what we know.
If you’re trying to figure out how to get to Disney World from the airport, there are plenty of options.
You could rent a car or try a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. If you want more of a shuttle, there are options like Mears and Sunshine Flyer. And for those traveling this summer, there’s a great way to SAVE on your airport transportation!
Disney World is HUGE, but don’t worry — there are lots of ways to get where you need to go. You can use the extensive bus system, hop on the Monorail, take a boat, or even use a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. One of the most unique forms of transportation, though, is the Disney Skyliner.
The Skyliner is Disney’s gondola transportation service that connects two of the theme parks (EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios) to certain hotels. It debuted in 2019 and has run into a few hitches since its opening, but generally it’s a quick, safe, and efficient way to get where you need to go. Even though it’s a safe way to travel, there are a few things you should NEVER do on the Skyliner. [Read more…]
