Guests looking for a new ground transportation option don't have to look far. Mears, the same company that used to operate Disney's Magical Express, introduced their new service, Mears Connect. Although the service may have a new name and price, Mears offers the same safe and reliable service guests have been using for years. In fact, if you use Mears Connect on your next vacation, it may look very familiar.
Mears offers two service options; Standard and Express. The Standard service is a shared shuttle service with monitored wait times and limited stops at at other Disney Resort Hotels, much like Disney's Magical Express service. If you're looking for more direct service, you can book the Express which provides limited wait time on a direct, shared service to your Resort. This isn't a private service so you may share your vehicle with other guests but you'll be guaranteed to be the first stop.
Once you arrive in Orlando, you'll collect your luggage from baggage claim and then make your way to ground transportation level 1 on the B side at the Orlando International Airport. (Sound familiar?) This is the same exact space where you would board Disney's Magical Express. The check-in counters are the same former counters just with new signage.

The Express Service is only available as a Round Trip service and is $250 for up to 4 passengers. If you have additional guests, the cost is $55 per additional passenger. The Express Service does not have a child rate so children of all ages are included in the total guest count.
Reservations can be made through the Mears Connect website or you can reach out to your Kingdom Konsultant Agent for assistance booking. If you don't already have a reservation, the sign at the check-in area says it's no problem! You can book your reservation by visiting MearsConnect.com upon arrival at the Orlando International Airport.
