The Express Transportation add-on service at Walt Disney World will end Wednesday, August 23. The last day for guests to purchase this service will be Wednesday, August 16.
According to Disney, while Guests who used Express Transportation enjoyed the convenience, more Guests preferred other forms of transportation.
The Express Transportation service provided park-to-park transportation from backstage locations so guests would not have to go through security again. The service was a bit controversal as it did take guests backstage and had the risk of “ruining the magic.”
Disney is currently soft-launching their Minnie Van service which provides transportation between on-property locations for $20. This individual service is on-demand, but does not go backstage meaning that guests going from a park to a park will have to go through security again.
