Help The Sunshine Flyer Decide New Make-A-Wish Bus Wrap!

When Walt Disney Word stopped offering the free Magical Express bus service between Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World for its resort guests, it left people with no choice but to make their own way to the resort.


Magical Express was operated by Mears, so obviously they stepped in to offer the same service (with the same buses mostly!) for a fee, but it also allowed a new and fun option to drive into the market, step forward The Sunshine Flyer.

Now, if you haven't seen their buses then your in for a treat, The Sunshine Flyer brings the era of 1920’s rail travel to the roads of Orlando, with each bus themed to old-fashioned passenger cars and train locomotives, and the drivers and staff dress as 1920’s rail conductors and engineers!


We see them out and about all the time, and it's fun spotting them on the road as no two vehicle designs are the same.

Now as The Sunshine Flyer introduce new buses, they have announced that a new bus will be joining the fleet, this one themed after the Make-A-Wish Foundation!


The new bus, Firefly, serves as “a symbol of light and hope” and represents The Sunshine Flyer company’s continued relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Northern Florida.


When The Sunshine Flyer first began operating in February of this year, the company donated 50% of its profits for its first 50 days of service to the Make-a-Wish foundation, raising $279,200, which granted 28 wishes for critically ill children.
