How to Travel to Disney World Like a VIP on a Magical Express Replacement

Remember the good old days of the Magical Express? After Disney did away with their free airport shuttle service, other options took its place, including the Sunshine Flyer.

Sunshine Flyer

These buses are themed around “old-fashioned passenger cars and train engines” and help get you in the headspace for a special trip as soon as you leave the airport!

Since its inception, this convenient option has remained a shared bus for both you and other guests heading to the Disney parks. However, if you would prefer something a little more exclusive, the Sunshine Flyer has a new service line! They have introduced a new private transportation service called the Sunshine Flyer Direct that will provide direct transport from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World resorts.

Unlike the classic motorcoach-themed buses, these rides will vary and guests can choose from a sedan, luxury SUV or sprinter van. You will also be able to select a pickup time and your driver will handle your baggage for you, even meeting you at baggage claim to help assist. Swanky!

Having someone else get your bags? That’s the best!

Just like the original Sunshine Flyer, the Sunshine Flyer Direct cars will have the same amenities for kids, including:

  • Three-point harness seat belts at each seat
  • Conductor hats
  • Stickers
  • Coloring/activity books

You can meet your driver in Terminals A, B and C at the Orlando International Airport. Your driver will monitor your flight information so your service will be on time and fit with your schedule. Try out this service the next time you visit Disney World!
