I must admit that I don't have any personal experience with
any Orlando area airport shuttle service. As a result,
I don't personally endorse any of them. However, I've been asked
about these services so much that I've done a bit of research...here
are my findings:
- (Listed Alphabetically) American Luxury Transportation,
Florida Town Car, Happy Limousine, Lincoln Town Car Service,
Mears Shuttle, Selective Limo, Tiffany Town Car, and Top One
Tours all have the reputation of being an efficient and reasonably-priced
means for getting to WDW from the airport or from WDW to other
- I would recommend a call your shuttle service before leaving
for Orlando to confirm their procedures and prices. It is
recommended that reservations be made at least 24 hours in
advanced to be picked up at your WDW hotel in time for your
homeward-bound plane. A shuttle company can pick you up, up
to two hours before your flight out of Orlando and drop you
off at the terminal.
- A shuttles can also take you from WDW to Sea World or any
of the other major attractions in the area for around $10.00
per passenger. Of course, you must make arrangements with
them in advance.
American Luxury Transportation
American Luxury Transportation provides special discount rates
to MousePlanet readers. You can hire them to provide luxury
Lincoln Town Cars or vans (depending on your group size) to
handle the chore of driving you from Orlando International Airport
to your hotel.
Typical rates run $45.00 one-way or $85.00 roundtrip plus gratuity
in a Lincoln Town Car or van. All trips are express, non-stop
(i.e., you don't have to wait for someone else to be dropped

Happy Limousine is one of the most flexible of all of the companies
listed on this page. They provide transportation via luxury
Lincoln Town Cars and Stretch Limos to people coming in at Orlando
International Airport and traveling to surrounding areas.
They can also pick up at Tampa, Daytona, Sanford, Orlando Executive
airports, and Port Canaveral (where the Disney Cruise Lines
and other cruise ships are based) if your travel plans are a
bit more complicated.
Happy Limousine's rates are very competitive, even though the
vehicles and service are considered "premium."
For example, the cost to be picked up at the Orlando International
Airport and be dropped off at your hotel (assuming on-site)
is $80.00 roundtrip plus gratuity in a Lincoln Town Car.
In a ten passenger stretch limousine, the cost goes up to $170.00
(again, gratuity not included). A Free 15 minute grocery
stop is included in the fare upon request.

Selective Limousine & Transportation
Selective Limousine & Transportation provides an unusual
array of services for an airport transportation company.
Not only do they provide min-bus, bus, motor coach, and limousine
transportation services, but they also provide meeting and convention
planning services. In addition to airport transportation,
Selective is happy to provide transportation to/from hotels
and theme parks, to Cape Canaveral to make cruise connections,

business, they also provide services for smaller groups and
individuals. Charges are done by the vehicle.

Lincoln Limousines serves the entire state of Florida, but

Airports. They meet you at baggage claim with a Meet &
Greet sign with your name on it and take you directly to your

Mears Shuttle Service
Mears Shuttle runs a continuous service (on a fifteen minute
schedule) from Orlando International Airport to WDW. A one way
ticket costs about $14.00 per person. Mears maintains a manned
counter at the airport baggage claim area, near the car rental
counters. The shuttle ride from the airport to WDW takes about
20 minutes, but depends on traffic as well as the number of
passengers and which resort hotels must be visited to drop everyone
Mears also has taxis service available at a higher rate, of
course. If you have reservations at a Disney resort, you
should received a coupon for $3 off per person. If not, Guest
Services can send you one.

(407) 423-5566 phone
Florida Town Car
Florida Town Car is more private than Mears. Each vehicle is
personally reserved for you when you make reservations. The
car costs about $75, regardless of how many people you have
in your party, so this might be a
better deal for you than Mears. Since FTC is not running
on a regular schedule, you can have the driver stop at a local
supermarket if you would like to buy sundries before getting
to your hotel ($5 extra charge for this). Also, the car will
go non-stop to your destination from the airport without making
any intermediate stops.
Paul Dolegowski (Paul.Dolegowski@signet.com) provided some
information on Florida Town Car including the phone numbers
below. Paul said, "I highly recommend Florida Town Car
over Mears. We used them on our trip last week. Cost was $70
round trip from MCO to WDW." Paul also gave me the phone
numbers and web address for Florida Town Car.
(800) 525-7246 toll free or (407)
Tiffany Town Car
The service provided by Tiffany is similar to that of Florida
Town Car and, by word of mouth, is generally good. Also,
it is reported that their prices are slightly better than FTC
and that they will make a brief sundries shopping stop free
of charge. Like FTC, Tiffany's car will go non-stop to
your destination from the airport without making any intermediate
