Mears Pricing & Reservations Available As It Prepares for Magical Express Replacement

The ride to and from Orlando International Airport is going to look a little different when 2022 rolls around for Disney travelers. We previously shared the news that Walt Disney World has announced they will no longer be offering their complimentary Magical Express transportation to and from the airport for their Disney Resort guests in 2022. With the service going away, Mears has announced they will be offering transportation for a fee. We now know those fees and that reservations are currently available for the service as it begins January 1, 2022.

Mears Connect states the service is the “Same reliable, safe service guests have been using for decades to Disney area hotels. Service starts January 1, 2022.” Currently, there are two Mears selections. You can choose Mears Standard service which is a shared service with large vehicles and monitored wait time. The second option is Mears Premium service which states it is a limited wait time with direct service. The introductory rates for their “Reserve Now & Save” promotion are listed below:


Standard Service:
One Way: $16.00 per adult, $13.50 per child
Round Trip: $32.00 per adult, $ 27.00 per child

Premium Service:
Round Trip: $200.00 (up to 4 passengers)
Per Additional Passenger: $55.00

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
