    Renting car @ WDW

    I there, has anyone every rented a car at WDW resort, not at the airport? I'm thinking of doing that to get out of the "world" one day & just wanted some info. Thanks

    2010- Third trip, my girls first trip. Was so magical
    2012- second trip for kiddos, Christmas time Spectacular. First DCL, over New Years Eve.So unbelievable!

    Re: Renting car @ WDW

    I can't say that I've ever rented a car at the resort, but last year we did rent one (for the first time) at the Airport. The reason I am replying, is because what I discovered may help others in the future. After a lot of research, I discovered that Alamo was the least expensive of all the options. (There is an Alamo location at WDW). I discovered that selecting the "lowest price" offer on the main page was in fact, not the lowest price. Going through the standard online booking was a better deal. Becoming an Alama insider (for free) gets you a discount. Search online for discount codes. I found a free upgrade code, which got me a standard car for the price of a small car. Finally, I pre-registered. This meant that there was no additional paperwork upon arrival. I presented my confirmation and much to my surprise, was presented with 20 cars to choose from. No small car, no standard car...I took a luxury car (at no extra cost). I did havea Corvette as an option, but there were 4 of us..and lugguage

    I have. I rented a car in 2013 to go to Legoland for a day. You rent from the Car Care Center.

    The two companies that are there are National and Alamo. You can call 407.824.3470 to schedule a pick up from your resort. They'll schedule and send a shuttle to you.

    From that point forward, it's just like renting a car anywhere else.

    When you return the car to the Car Care Center, they'll also have a shuttle that will take you back to your resort.

    I have, we used Alamo was great, cheap and they pick you and drop you off where ever you want. Highly recommend, we used them to go to "another" park. I am renting one next week to run out and get some stuff for the grand Kids at Walmart.
