View Full Version : Another Limo Question !

04-27-2004, 12:00 PM
We are looking into using a limo on this trip from MCO to BWV. There are six of us, and we have always used the TTC van in the past. We thought it might be fun to surprise the kids with a limo. My question is ... Which service to use? I have been calling around and it seems that some services charge up to 50.00 for a grocery stop with a limo. Why would that be? What is the difference in the stop between the car vs. the limo? I was wondering if anyone else has used a limo with the grocery stop, and what you have found to be the best deal. So far, I think FL tours is winning in my book, it is 190 + 20% grat + free grocery stop. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks! princess:

Hi! I am using Jimmy with Golden Limo. My rate includes MCO to Disney, then Disney to Universal, then Universal back to MCO. Price is $220 with free grocery stop (plus tip). I'm guessing it would be around $175-$180 without the transfer between Disney and Universal.

I was going to call Happy Limo. Have any of you heard of them from allears.net.

As I won't be going until Sept :( Hope you all post how the service is! I have 5 people so taxi is to small and bus would be around same price as limo. OK not quite the same SHHH dont tell husband. :smooth:

I don't want have to stop at all the other resorts just to get to mine.

You all have a great trip. :wave2:

i'm also using southern elegance limos - my questions have been very quickly answered by email, and everyone's seemed really nice so far.

bratray...please let me know how it goes with Southern Elegance...we're going to Disney in October & are still researching limo companies!

Has anyone heard of A1 Luxury Limos? They have good rates, but I haven't found anyone else that has ever used them.

Good luck and have a great time!

I've used Jimmy from Golden several times and he has been by far the most reliable and courteous of all the drivers/services I've ever used in all my WDW trips!
