Earlier this year Disney announced that it would be doing away with the Disney Magical Express service starting January 1, 2022. Mears then announced it would provide a service to guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resort and now that service is available to book. Mears Connect will take guests from the Orlando airport to their Disney World hotel starting in 2022.
Disney’s Magical Express is a complimentary transportation service that takes guests from the Orlando airport to their onsite Walt Disney World Resort hotel. The service has always been “complimentary” but the price is just worked into Disney World’s packages. That service will be ending starting January 1, 2022. All packages booked for arrivals January 1, 2022 and onward will not have the option to add Magical Express.
Mears is another transportation company that offers different services for guests in the Orlando area. Now, the company will be offering Mears Connect, a service for guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resort.
There are two options when using Mears Connect: Standard and Premium. Standard is a shared service in larger vehicles (most likely buses) with monitored wait times. Premium is a direct service with a limited wait time.
The Standard service is $32 per adult and $27 per child for round trip. For one-way service, it is $16 per adult and $13.50 per child. The premium service is $200 for groups of one to four guests and increases by $55 for each additional guest for groups of 5 or more. So a family of 5 would pay $255 for the premium service while a family of 4 would pay $200.
