I was under the impression the Express Transportation option was popular for guests at Disney World. Everyone I heard from loved the convenience of being able to hop from park to park without having to go through security. Well, I guess it wasn’t popular enough. Laughing Place has just announced this add-on transportation option will be coming to an end Wednesday, August 23. The last day for guests to purchase this option is Wednesday, August 16.
Express Transportation launched back in December 2016 as a trial run. The service was then confirmed as a permanent option a few months later. When it was originally introduced, the price was $15 per person per day or $24 per person for multiple days. However, the price increased this past February to $19 per person per day and $29 per person for a multi-day pass.
Disney says that the option was terminated because “more guests preferred other forms of transportation.” Some said the service took away from the magic because guests were going backstage in order to ride the Express Bus.
Disney recently launched the Minnie Vans as an alternative to Uber and Lyft-like services. This new service provides transportation between locations on property for a flat fee of $20. The service is currently in testing phase and only available at a few resorts. We should hear about Minnie Vans being rolled out to many more locations, if not property-wide, any day now.
Are you sad to see the Express Transportation option go away?
