Today, the Walt Disney World Resort dropped a bombshell! Beginning in 2022, Guests will no longer be able to use Disney’s Magical Express as a way to get to and from the Walt Disney World Resort when arriving and departing at Orlando International Airport.
Disney sites that the reason behind this change is that the needs and preferences of Guests are changing and vacationers have more options than ever to choose from for their transportation needs. So, what does the retirement of Disney’s Magical Express mean for you? Well, it means starting with arrivals starting on January 1, 2022, Guests will need to find their own method of transportation to and from the resort. Disney’s Magical Express will continue to operate for new and existing reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for arrivals throughout 2021.
Keep in mind that other complimentary transportation offerings at the Walt Disney World Resort, such as buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner, will continue to be available within Walt Disney World Resort for Disney Resort hotel guests.
Disney’s Magical Express is a service that debuted in May 2005 and provides free bus transportation to and from Orlando International Airport and Disney’s resort hotels, for Guests staying at those hotels. Want to learn more about Disney’s Magical Express? Take a look at our FAQ.
