Mears Connect is now servicing Disney area hotels that were previously serviced by Disney’s Magical Express. The shuttle service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and the Disney area resorts started with arrivals on January 1, 2022.
**MEARS CONNECT TRANSPORTATION SERVICE IS NOT FREE**
Travelers who utilize this service will board a motor coach bus, van, or car at Orlando International Airport and, along with their luggage, will be transported to their Walt Disney World Resort area hotel.
It's important to note that, similar to Disney's Magical Express, it is likely that you'll be sharing your ride with other guests and that you'll be stopping at other resort hotels on the way. The pricing below is "introductory" and could change at any time. While we do our best to update our information when we receive it, it's important to keep in mind that everything is subject to change.
You must make a reservation for airport transportation; it will not automatically be done for you. Reservations can no longer be added to your Walt Disney World vacation package and must be made on the official Mears Connect website or your Dreams Unlimited Travel agent can make them for you.

The Sunshine Flyer is a themed motorcoach bus experience that transports guests from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Walt Disney World Resorts. The service offers a convenient and cost-effective mode of transportation, allowing guests to start the magic of their Disney vacation from the moment they step off the plane.
The Sunshine Flyer’s buses are late model, premium motorcoaches with themes that center around old-fashioned passenger cars and train engines. From the bus designs to staff dressed as 1920s rail conductors and engineers, the motorcoaches effectively serve as time-machines, offering a glimpse into 1920s rail travel.
The buses service all Disney resorts and are complete with a bathroom, USB chargers, and three-point seatbelts for the comfort and safety of all guests. Ahead of travel, guests will book their tickets online and receive a QR code they will scan once arriving at MCO which will ensure smooth timing and departures to the Resorts.
Tickets for The Sunshine Flyer must be booked at least four days ahead of arrival. Tickets are $17.00 per adult, $12.50 per child each way. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.sunshineflyer.com.
