Disney's Magical Express operates to and from MCO only.

Only MCO. If you fly into any other airport you'll have to find your own way to WDW (rental car, taxi, or towncar service).

Wow, it looks like all three of us was posting at the exact same time. lol

Sanford says they have a shuttle to all the hotels. It wasn't cheap and I can just imagine how long that ride would be. We are renting.

I've flown into Sanford several times. I've never seen anything about a general shuttle. I do think there is a shuttle service though that you can book but it doesn't run very often. I'm sure it would, as you said, take forever!

I have never heard of an airport-run shuttle at SFD. There is a company called Sanford Transportation, but they are not run by the airport and they have received a lot of complaints over the years.

There is a shuttle at Sanford that you can book when flying Allegiant Air. I don't remember the cost but for 3 people it was cheaper to get a car service for $125 plus tip through Tiffany Town Car. It was shared with all Orlando area hotels, I do remember that.

Was that a one way rate? I ask because it was around $200 plus tip when we used Tiffany to and from Sanford.

This is the information I received too. I don't travel til Dec. but the car rental is cheaper now and I'm hoping it will go down the closer I get to my travel date.

Hey - NICE TICKERS!!!!!

OMG we all 3 have identical tickers! And are all going around the same time - what are everyone's dates - maybe we could split a car service or van from Sanford!! We don't have airfare yet but we might go down Allegiant on Friday, 12/6. We fly home Tuesday, 12/10. It's a fun filled Girls Only trip!

We are flying Allegiant into Sanford. Bundled the flight and rental car. We are getting a rental SUV through Alamo for 6 days for $230.
