The Sunshine Flyer Will Offer Direct Transport From Orlando International Airport

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida, Orlando Region, is honored to be partnering with The Sunshine Flyer, a partnership between Academy Bus, Empire Coach Line and Transportation Management Services. To celebrate Disney’s 50th anniversary, The Sunshine Flyer will be generously donating 50% of all revenue from the first 50,000 passengers during the first 50 days of business. The Sunshine Flyer starts running on February 1, 2022. The goal of this partnership is to raise $100,000 as The Sunshine Flyer is committed to uplifting spirits and granting the wishes of local children with a critical illness.

The Sunshine Flyer, a themed motorcoach bus experience, will transport guests from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Walt Disney World® Resorts. Offering a convenient and cost-effective mode of transportation, The Sunshine Flyer will allow guests to start the magic of their vacation from the moment they step off the plane.

Before leaving the airport, guests are immediately transported into an immersive and exciting premium travel experience – maximizing their theme park experience from the very beginning of their vacation. While traveling on The Sunshine Flyer, guests will encounter themes that center around old-fashioned passenger cars and train engines. From the bus designs, to staff dressed as 1920s rail conductors and engineers, the motorcoaches effectively serve as time-machines, offering a glimpse into 1920s rail travel.

“I am pleased to be working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation as it holds a special place in my heart. Two years ago, after admiring the work the Make-A-Wish Foundation does, my family and I had the opportunity to accompany friends on a Make-A-Wish trip to Walt Disney World® for their son. It was incredible to see firsthand what the wishes can do for a child and their family. My hope is that through our partnership with the local Central & Northern Florida chapter, we can be part of making those wishes and memories even better,” said Tony Glibkowski, Vice President of The Sunshine Flyer.

Tickets for The Sunshine Flyer are $17.00 per adult, $12.50 per child each way. Tickets must be booked at least four days ahead of arrival. To learn more and to book tickets, please visit:
