Walt Disney World has its Magical Express transportation for guests staying at Disney owned resorts.
But Shades of Green guests are on their own for transportation from Orlando International Airport to the Military Resort on Disney property.
I usually drive to Disney World. In fact My family and I have only flown in to Orlando three times over the years. Each time we tried a different method of getting to WDW.
Once we rented a car at the airport and used it to drive to Disney and back. Then we had the rental car to drive to the parks or wherever we wanted to go. You might be able to find a good military rate. I’m a USAA member and they have discounts negotiated with all the major car rental companies.
The other two times we used a limo service and Disney’s Magical Express.
Here are the options for your transportation from Orlando International Airport to Shades of Green:
- Limo Service
- Bus Service
- Rental Car
Limo Service – There are numerous limo services available to take you to WDW.
Taxi – Taxis at the airport are about $75 each way to Disney.
Bus Service – A company called Mears Transport runs regular buses vans and limos from the airport to all WDW and local area resorts. About $80-100 one way
Car Rental – You might be able to find a good military rate. I’m a USAA member and they have discounts negotiated with all the major car rental companies.

How can I get to Other Destinations like Universal Studios, SeaWorld, or Legoland?
As far as getting to Universal or Sea World from Shades of Green you have a couple of options.
There is an Alamo kiosk just off the Shades of Green lobby you could rent a car for the day or more if you have other excursions planned.
There is a shuttle bus available at Shades. You need to make a reservation 24 hours in advance with the Shades of Green Ticket Sales Office. The round trip cost is $ 10.00 per adult and $ 5.00 per child. Under 4 is free.
For other destinations like Legoland Florida, Kennedy Space Center, and your Disney Cruise at Port Canaveral I again recommend OrlandoShuttleService.com
