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.
