I was curious to know if any of the major rental companies offer large vans for transporting 10 people to/from MCO and port?

Our outbound flight isn't until 6pm so we were thinking of spending some time either at KSC or Downtown Disney after the cruise.

Budget.com has a 12 passenger van, but you may have trouble with 10 people plus luggage in it. We just did the 1/22 Magic and had 7 adults and 4 children to transport. Shopping around we found two minivans that were about the same price as one 12 passenger van and offered more luggage space.

The ones to try would be Budget, Hertz, Avis and National. We did Budget going to Port Canaveral at about $55 per mini-van including taxes and they have a shuttle. Coming back, National had the best rate at $46, but they don't have a shuttle and the taxi ride is about $14 one way to/from cruise ship terminal.

Hi, we used Murray Hill transportation for our party of 11 this past September.

I would say that we were Extremely impresed :worship:

We had many complications with our trip, and Madame JEanne, and they were fantastic about everything, so much that they had given us our drivers cell phone number, and we were in constant contact with him. We were changing flights, as well as airports, and times, and they were 100% reliable.

They also had plenty of space for all of our luggage...

We used a Budget 12 pass van on 2003 and the luggage was tight for 10 people but we managed....

Here is a pic of the van....

Thanks for the info. According to Budget.com tonight they do not have a 12 passenger van available. The Ford minivan is $87 + tax. Maybe I could call the location directly and make arrangements.
