I think everyone is aware that at the end of 2021 Disney World is doing away with one of the best perks of staying on Property: Magical Express.
It’s been one my absolute favorite things and yes, it’s made me want to stay on property when it’s cheaper to stay elsewhere. The idea of not having to collect my luggage in Florida and having it automatically sent to my room is fantastic.
I honestly thought Disney was cutting ties with Mears, the bus company that runs Magical Express, and would announce their own service but it’s not looking that way. It’s another perk WDW is taking away and another reason NOT to stay on property.
Mickey Views YouTube Channel got the pricing and details about it.
(Here’s their video: https://youtu.be/lnnny-XUSkw?t=40 )
It will be called Mears Connect and Basically:
Standard Service (get on a bus that will stop multiple times before leaving the airport)
Premium Round Trip Service - Direct from pickup to WDW :
$200 (up to 4 passengers)
$55 each additional passenger
He didn’t have any details about whether they’ll collect your luggage or not but I’m not betting on it.
Here’s ANOTHER reason to not stay on property along with how you don’t get any advantage from that with the Genie+ plan either.
