But you also have to think about how you will actually GET to Disney World, especially if you are flying. After Disney’s Magical Express ended service in January 2022, we saw 2 major companies take over that role, transporting guests to and from the Orlando International Airport and their Disney World hotels (for a fee). Those main services were Mears Connect and The Sunshine Flyer. But there’s since been a change.
If you’ll be flying in for your next trip, your transportation to Disney World may be cheaper than you expected.
While Disney’s Magical Express is no longer available to drive us from the Orlando International Airport to the Disney World hotels, there are several replacement companies that are offering transportation services to and from the Most Magical Place on Earth. One company, in particular, is running a sale that you might want to act on if you’ve got an upcoming trip. [Read more…]
If there’s one thing we think most Disney World fans can agree on, it’s that they hate price increases.
And, we totally get it! Why would you want to pay more for something than you did a year ago if it’s the exact same? But, we see price increases regularly in Disney World — they’re almost expected at this point. Annual Passes, MagicBands, Spirit Jerseys, and more have all seen price increases over the past year. And, even though we’re only a little over 2 months into 2022, there have already been significant price increases in Disney World. So, let’s take a look at what we’ve seen so far this year.
Traveling to Disney World for vacation?! How EXCITING! But before you hit up your favorite rides and feast on your favorite snacks, there’s the teensy matter of getting from the airport to your hotel.
In a perfect world, we would just roll right off the plane and into our Disney World hotel beds. But things aren’t QUITE so perfect, so let’s break it waaaaay down with a handy guide for how to get to Disney World from the Orlando Airport!
At the beginning of this year, Disney World officially discontinued the Magical Express service.
This service offered free transportation to and from Orlando International Airport for guests staying at Disney World hotels. With Magical Express discontinued, the company that provided the transportation for Disney, Mears, has now begun offering airport transfer services which guests can purchase separately.
A new year is right around the corner! If you are planning a trip to Disney World in 2022, then you’re probably preparing for all of the changes, including Disney Genie and Genie+, the 50th Anniversary Celebration, and much more!
However, if you’re accustomed to flying in and out of Orlando International Airport, then your Disney World trip may actually cost MORE starting on January 1st. That’s right, there’s a new line item in your vacation budget that you’ll now need to plan for starting in 2022: ground transportation.
At the end of 2021, Disney’s Magical Express will be discontinued and will conclude its service to and from Orlando International Airport. As of this writing, Disney has yet to announce their own replacement program that will shuttle guests from the airport to their resort hotel, but Mears, the company that operated Magical Express, has announced what they will provide.
Mears Connect will launch right after Magical Express is discontinued, so it’s important to get the rundown on what exactly this new service is, how it’s similar to Magical Express, and how it’s different!
Disney’s Magical Express service, which transports guests to and from the airport and their Disney hotel, officially discontinued service at the beginning of January 2022.

Now that we know the pricing for this new service and how it operates, we’re wondering if it’s still your best bet for getting to Disney World. But, just how does that pricing compare to ordering an Uber to take your family to and from the airport? We’re breaking it all down to find out.
Disney’s Magical Express is being discontinued on January 1st, 2022.

With Disney’s Magical Express being discontinued at the end of 2021, many are wondering how they’re going to get from the airport to Disney World.
