Re: Lufthansa - Frankfurt to Orlando canceled?

I may have to choose from Frankfurt to Miami and then somehow take a bus to Orlando.
I know in LAX, they have (or used to) called a Fly Away bus which takes to areas of LA which are far from LAX area.
Do they have some sort of service similar to this in Miami?
