    Walt Disney World's Magical Express airport shuttle is on track to handle nearly 2 million passengers this year, but its success has come at a price for small rental-car, limousine and bus companies.

    The first-of-its-kind free service shuttled 186,238 passengers in April -- its peak month -- from Orlando International Airport to the Disney resort, with eight of the past 15 months tallying more than 155,000 passengers.

    The figures underscore Disney's significance as a driver of airport traffic. Vacationers heading to Disney accounted for more than 10 percent of all passengers who flew into the airport during the first six months of this year.

    Never thought of it that way. Feel alittle sorry for the regular taxi drivers. That's alot of business taken away.

        I think that the Disney Experience should be as seamless as possible. A dirty cab ride defeats the excitement of the whole arrival on property. If you want your own car then that is a different decision as you'll go off property anyhow.
        ..and take the advice tendered below and thank you for patronizing Shrunken Ned, the jungle's only self service witch doctor.
