One Part of Your Upcoming Disney World Trip Just Got Far More Affordable

When it comes to a getaway to the Most Magical Place on Earth, there aren’t too many things that see a decrease in price, but if you’re headed to the parks at the Walt Disney World Resort soon, you’ll be thrilled to know that getting from Orlando International Airport to your Disney World Resort Hotel just got cheaper.

Once upon a time, Disney World Guests gave little thought to the mode of transportation they’d take once to the Walt Disney World Resort from Orlando International Airport. Once they landed, gathered their belongings at baggage claim, and walked out the sliding doors, it was easy to spot Disney’s Magical Express buses waiting to carry Guests away from MCO to Disney World so they could begin their magical vacations–and at no cost to Guests staying at a Disney World Resort Hotel.

But when 2022 rolled around, the Magical Express rolled out, leaving Guests to choose from other transportation services, each one with its own restrictions, conditions, and fees, including Lyft, Uber, and vehicle rentals. Another MCO-to-Disney World service operated by the entity that once operated Disney’s Magical Express is also available, and this season, they’re making it easier and cheaper than ever to get from Orlando International to the magic in the parks.
