Much of your trip to Walt Disney World just got a lot cheaper


If you’re looking for a vacation spot that offers family fun for all ages, Disney World is your place.

If you want to take the family on a vacation where magical memories are created at every turn, Walt Disney World Resort is hands down the place to visit. But if you’re looking for a vacation destination that offers a spectacular experience that still meets families’ budgets, well, you’ll want to keep looking.

Although Disney World offers the most magical, memorable and exciting experience a family can have together, a trip to the most magical place in the world can be extremely expensive, even for families trying to stick to a budget. The sights, sounds, tastes and nods to childhood – while all wonderful and magical – give guests a sense of childhood nostalgia and excitement that seems to give guests a false sense of security to make purchases that they would not normally make.

But at least one discount will make your transportation to the parks a little more enjoyable.

Early 2022, Disney’s Magical Express service, which carried Guests between Orlando International Airport and the Disney World property, has been discontinued, allowing visitors to not only find their own transportation from the airport to the parks, but also to pay for that transportation. Disney’s Magical Express was a free service for Guests staying on Disney World property.

The service shutdown was a blow to families who typically still fly into Orlando and use the Magical Express service. No rental cars, no carpooling, just the Magical Express.

And while there are still no free transportation services that move visitors between MCO and the parks, at least one paid service makes it a little easier for families with children to get to the parks once they get there. landed in Orlando.

It sounded a little too good to be true, so we plugged in some numbers and found out that it IS true; we were able to book the transportation service for 3 paying adults and 7 children for a trip at the end of October 2022. The total cost was $96, which means the service only charged us for 3 adults at $32 per one way ticket -return. What a story!
