Disney’s Magical Express to Retire in 2022
Beginning with arrivals on January 1st, 2022, Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be an option for transportation to and from Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World. At that time, Disney will no longer provide an airport shuttle, and alternative options, such as ride-share services, rental cars, and other third-party transportation options will be encouraged for travelers. On-site Disney Transportation – buses, monorail, boat launch, and the Disney Skyliner – will remain complimentary options between Disney Resort hotels, all four theme parks, and Disney Springs.
Early Park Entry Announced for Disney Resort Guests
Coming later this year as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration, Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels will have access to early park entry. When this occurs, all four theme parks will be open 30 minutes before scheduled park opening and will occur every day. As for Extra Magic Hours, this announcement stated that this benefit is still suspended due to health and safety restrictions. Once we receive further details and the exact date, we will provide an update to this story.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom to End This Month
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, an interactive in-park game where guests cast magical spells in the form of cards to defeat Disney Villains, will be retiring this month. At the time of recording, the Walt Disney World website has times through January 31st, though reports have been stating January 24th as the final date. If you’re visiting the Magic Kingdom this month and are a fan of this game, be sure to pick-up your cards before it’s too late!
