Taxi, taxi, rental car, taxi?

Hi All,

I'm here for suggestions. Our family of 5 (2 adults, 1 senior, 1 teen and 1 preteen) will be flying into MCO. This trip we're planning on visiting Universal. Since we'll have quite a bit of luggage (4-5 suitcases, 5 rolling carryons etc) whatever transportation we use has to be able to accommodate 5 of us plus our luggage. We're thinking of catching a taxi van to Universal (our flight arrives in the afternoon) staying at the Royal Pacific (front of the line privileges) heading to IOA and US for two days then catching a taxi van to WDW when we're done at IOA (check out of RP in the early am and have them hold our bags while we visit IOA). That night, check in at Shades of Green. I wanted to rent a car at Shades or at CCC but fear neither will be open when when we arrivevat WDW. Now, here's the rough part, go to CCC at 6 am to rent a standard car (I figure since we don't have to worry about luggage we don't need a minivan) then pick up senior and 2 kids and head out for a park (I want to be at park for rope drop to maximize riding rides). At the end our Florida trip, return car at CCC and then get a taxi van from WDW to MCO.

Does this sound doable and is it difficult to find a taxi van to transport our family and all of our luggage? We will be traveling in the last 2 weeks of March.

Thanks so much in advance for your input.

CCC opens at 8, I think, so no. Why not just use the Shades of Green bus?
