My wife and I are traveling to WDW in June for our anniversary and looking for options besides Mears/Sunshine. On our flight home, we’d prefer not to be at the airport 3hrs before our flight. Wondering if Lyft is a better option or any other options that’s not too expensive.
I normally Uber/lyft to and from the airport, and it’s usually $32-38 (before tip) each way. The small extra cost is worth it to me because it’s more tailored to my own time frame.
Since the bus service is now decoupled from your resort stay, you can choose a bus that picks you up later than 3-4 hours before your flight.
Depending on when you’re flying out and if you have PreCheck/Clear…and/or need to check a bag you may need every minute of that 3 hours…MCO has been rough lately. (but I understand not wanting to take Mears)
@Jeff_AZ has recently created this thread as well, which has some great info in it! Car Service Reviews 2023
Ride share is a good option.
Uber/Lyft tends to be both faster and cheaper than a pre-booked bus. And usually cheaper than a car service as well.
My wife and I were hesitant taking a Lyft for the first time. Not any more. It is the only way to go. We have now used it between WDW and Universal, and From MCO to Universal and then WDW to MCO. We use Lyft XL because of the amount of luggage we have. Cost varies with distance and averages around 37 to 47 depending on a regular size Lyft or and XL. The app is easy to get and easy to set up a account. You call for a Lyft ride via the app and are charged via the Lyft account. You are given the info on the driver as well as the vehicle that will pick you up. You are given the time to pick-up and the vehicle position at the time of reservation. Have never waited more than 10 minutes. You can track it’s whereabouts coming to you and while riding to your destination. We use Lyft, but Uber appears to be mostly the same and works the same. Many of the Lyft vehicles show both Lyft and Uber in there front window. Driver appear to be working both. Since using them it is the only way to go for us. We have way more control of our time and for the little extra money it is point A to point B no stops. Vehicles are usually next to new and very clean. Driver is usually foreign and just trying to make a living in there new country. Very courteous. If interested go on your smart phone and download the App. Must then start an account which is safe and easy. Only way to go now that we have discovered them.
