Breaking news – the free transportation service Disney offers between the Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World is permanently ending on January 1, 2022. Read below for the official statement from Disney.
Vacationers have more options to choose from than ever for transportation, including ride-share services that save time and offer more flexibility to go where they want, when they want. In light of this shift, when Disney Resort hotel bookings open for stays in 2022, we will no longer offer Disney’s Magical Express service for airport transportation, starting with arrivals Jan. 1, 2022. We will continue to operate the service for new and existing reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for arrivals throughout 2021. Additionally, complimentary transportation options – such as buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner – will continue to be available within Walt Disney World Resort for Disney Resort hotel guests, including to and from all four theme parks.
We will continue to update this article with when more information is announced, but it seems that the Brightline train will eventually be the replacement.
