Disney’s Magical Express Replacement Announced

We previously shared the big new that Disney announced the Magical Express service for airport transportation will come to an end beginning January 1, 2022. This complimentary Disney resort guest service will be greatly missed. Shortly after Disney’s announcement, Mears – who operates the Magical Express service – announced they plan to continue offering transportation service in some form. Well, now enters the latest in Disney’s Magical Express replacement… “Mears Connect”.


Mears Connect is coming in January 2022, just in time for the retirement of Disney’s Magical Express. While details are limited, we do know that Mears Transportation’s connection experience will connect guests from the airport to Disney Resort areas. Mears has announced this new transportation will offer “The Same Reliable, Safe, Express Service”. You can begin making your reservations for Mears Connect starting May 2021.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
