I know, you love Disney's Magical Express. You love receiving those special, yellow luggage tags. You anticipate receiving that Mickey mail containing your confirmation, and when you get off the plane at Orlando International Airport, you love how it feels to skip the baggage carousel and head right over to the ground level of Terminal B to join that magical bus line.
Going forward, there's another magical option for your family to get from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
A Minnie Van!
You can now confirm your family's reservation to hop inside a Minnie Van to ride directly from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
I have experienced several rides in a Minnie Van, and what I love about this service is that, unlike Uber and Lyft, Minnie Vans are driven by Walt Disney World Cast Members. This means you'll receive the same high standard of service as a Minnie Van passenger that you're accustomed to throughout Disney property. Don't forget to ask your driver for a transportation collector card before you get out of the vehicle. And don't forget to take your phone with you...after all, you'll have a chance to charge it during your ride.
A few fine points:

Some of you may know that Disney Skyliner, which opened to resort guests at the tail end of September, has been closed due to operational difficulties and an incident which occurred on October 5, 2019.
Today, Disney Skyliner reopens to guests at Walt Disney World Resort!
The entire system has been reviewed with the manufacturer, and in true Disney fashion, many of the training, communication and processes have been adjusted. If there is a silver lining to the malfunction that took place earlier this month, it is the fact that Disney has learned from it, and continues to improve the system for guest safety and enjoyment.
Disney Skyliner is open today from 8 am until 10:30 pm.
Later this week, there will be modified hours of operation to accommodate additional system updates:
It's important for guests to understand that, from time to time, the Disney Skyliner system may slow down or come to a stop, especially while cast members are assisting guests who need some extra time and help to board the gondolas.
Disney Skyliner can help you get from Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios to four different resorts:
I'm really looking forward to taking Disney Skyliner for a spin this coming weekend!
