Disney’s Magical Express is ending at the end of 2021, leaving many Guests wondering how they are going to get to and from Orlando International Airport. A new service will soon be available that could get your vacation started in a whimsical way!

The Sunshine Flyer will transport Guests to and from Orlando International Airport and all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. There are plans to expand to include other area hotels and attractions.

What exactly is the Sunshine Flyer? Here’s the description from the official website:

All aboard the Sunshine Flyer! The Sunshine Flyer brings the era of 1920’s rail travel to the start of your vacation. The Sunshine Flyer’s buses are late model, premium motorcoaches with a theme centered around old-fashioned passenger cars and train locomotives.  From the bus designs to drivers and staff dressed as 1920’s rail conductors and engineers, the Sunshine Flyer experience starts shortly after you step off the plane.

Each Motorcoach will be wrapped either as a 1920’s era locomotive or passenger car.  No two vehicle designs will be the same, providing a distinctiveness for each Sunshine Flyer ride, giving first time riders and returning guests a new experience and photo opportunity each time they ride The Sunshine Flyer.

The Sunshine Flyer will begin transporting Guests on February 1, 2022. The cost will be $17 per adult, one way, and $34 per adult roundtrip. The price per child under ten will be $12.50 for one way and $25 roundtrip. Reservations are now available.

With so much uncertainty these days, many people are worried about cancelations. With the Sunshine Flyer, you can cancel up to 72 hours in advance for a full refund. If the 72 hour mark has passed and you need to cancel, you will receive a credit.

There’s one additional reason to book. For the first 50 days, the Sunshine Flyer will donate 50 percent of sales to Make a Wish, in honor of Walt Disney World’s 5oth Anniversary. You’ll ride in style and make a difference at the same time.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
