Disney’s announcement that they were discontinuing free Magical Express transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport left many Guests stressed about how to get to and from their Disney Resort.

Many companies rose to the challenge, and one of the most well-known and popular options was MEARS. Consequently, MEARS was the third-party vendor hired by Disney to run the Magical Express.

Earlier this year, Mears Connect and Sunshine Flyer announced that they would be merging. This took effect on August 1, 2023. The new service is now called Mears Connect Driven by Sunshine.
