The start of the new year marked the beginning of an important change that is impacting the way guests travel to and from Disney World. Disney’s free Magical Express transportation service is no longer available, meaning guests must find a different way to get to their Disney resort from the airport.
There are several alternate options currently available, and there is a high-speed train project in the works that will eventually make stops near Disney Springs. One replacement service, called Mears Connect, is now up and running, so let’s take a look at the new service.
While we were visiting Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, we caught a glimpse of the new Mears Connect service in action.

Interestingly, the new Mears Connect busses look very similar to Disney’s old Magical Express busses. It looks like the Magical Express busses received a Mears Connect makeover — what do you think?
Inside, readers have told us that the busses look the same as the old Magical Express busses. The in-ride video now reportedly promotes all Orlando attractions, though, instead of the old Disney videos.
If you’re looking for the closest possible alternative to Disney’s Magical Express service, it sounds like Mears Connect might be your best option. Keep in mind that the pricing can vary from service to service, so weigh all your options before you decide! In the meantime, stay tuned for all the latest Disney news and park updates!
