How to Get to a Disney World Resort from MCO Airport

Disney World Resorts are about 20 miles from the MCO Airport and there are many ways to get to the resorts from the airport.

Disney World used to provide a service to the resorts as part of a Dinsey Resort package, but that has since stopped.

The best option is to either Uber, take a Taxi (they are regulated in Florida), or a transfer service like Galaxy Vacations.

Galaxy Vacations will pick your family up at the airport, load your luggage and take you to your Disney resort for a per person fee.
