    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.

    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.
