Reservations and Pricing Now Available for Magical Express Replacement

| | |

Earlier this year, the Walt Disney World Resort announced that Disney’s Magical Express would come to an end at the end of 2021. As of today, reservations and pricing are now available for the Magical Express replacement, coming in 2022.

Disney's Magical Express

Disney’s Magical Express is a free shuttle service taking guests flying into the Orlando International Airport to their resort hotels. This service was run by the Mears Transportation company and they had announced previously that they would continue to provide something similar to Disney guests.

The new service, Mears Connect, is a paid service. There are two levels that guests can choose from – standard or premium service. For each service, guests can expect the following:

  • quick access to Mears Connect once you land at the airport
  • an arrival souvenir
  • limited wait time to board
  •  limited stops to your resort
  • entertainment for your travel party while you ride
  • clean, sanitized vehicles
  • spacious, comfortable seating
  • professional, friendly drivers

Standard service is a shared ride service that will make a limited number of stops and have guests on the way to their resorts within 20 minutes of check-in to the Mears Connect reception area. This charge also includes any tolls and other surcharges.

Premium service is a direct service with limited to no wait time.

The pricing is as follows:

  • Standard service is $16/adult and 13.50/child for one-way service
  • Roundtrip is $32/adult and $27/child
  • The roundtrip premium service is $200 for up to 4 passengers. Additional passengers are $55/person

These services begin on January 1, 2022, and guests can now make reservations online.

To book, you will need to follow these steps:

1.) Choose your type of service – premium or standard

2.) Confirm your ride details – you will need to choose your drop-off and pick-up locations, your arrival and departure dates and times, and flight numbers. You will also need to select the number of guests and bags and indicate whether you have a wheelchair.

3.) Confirm your payment details – you will then enter your payment information and confirm!

It’s an easy process and can be done now! Will you be trying it out on your next trip?
