The Sunshine Flyer, a source of transportation from Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World resorts that is perfect for family travelers, recently obtained its official Resort Transportation Operator Permit from the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. Launching operations in February 2022, The Sunshine Flyer has worked toward this official permit status since inception as it can now move its operations inside Terminal B, Level 1, Ground Transportation. Guests can find the train-themed transportation service more easily than before.


“We know how important it is to our guests to be able to more easily locate us within the airport,” said Tony Glibkowski, vice president, The Sunshine Flyer. “Since before our first day of service, we have been working toward obtaining this permit so that we can better serve our guests and ensure their vacation starts the moment they step off the plane. This is a big step in making that happen. We are very excited for our guests to enjoy our new location. They can look forward to the same great service, but now in a much-easier-to-find location.”


Kid travelers enjoy many of The Sunshine Flyer’s amenities, like three-point harness seat belts at each seat, conductor hats for kids, stickers, coloring and activity books, and onboard video entertainment. For families traveling as part of the Make-A-Wish program, transportation is complimentary. Tickets cost $11 per child and $19.50 per adult.
