Earlier this year in January, Disney’s Magical Express was announced it was ending as on January 1, 2022. The Disney fandom was shocked and disappointed. This service was a huge benefit and one many guests enjoyed. Shortly after this announcement, Mears, the company who ran Disney’s Magical Express made its own announcement. Mears Connect would begin on January 1, 2022 as a new service, effectively replacing its predecessor.
Mears Connect Pricing
Today, the Mears Connect website was quietly updated and reservations are now available to made. Previously, all that was available was a Coming Soon notice and an option to sign up for updates. Additionally, with this update today, pricing has been released.
The image above says “Introductory Rates” so I’m not too sure how long these rates will last. Furthermore, I am not surprised at all by the rates. These are right where I thought they would be, based on what we see with Cruise Line Shuttles.
Below is some information from their website, which provides a brief overview of what to expect.
