Best way to get to onsite rental car

Ok, so I booked a rental car at the Dolphin for only a few days during our trip. What's the best way to get from the BLT to the Dolphin by 8am?

Walk over to Magic Kingdom and get on a Dolphin bus OR change your pick up location to the Disney Car Care Center (close to BLT) and they will come and pick you up with the shuttle van. You may not even have to change your reservation. I had a reservation once at the Dolphin, and I just called the Car Care Center and told them I wanted to pick up the car at their location. It was no problem when I told them I needed a ride. They picked me up within 15 minutes.

Cab. Have you thought about changing your ressie to the Care Car Center They will pick up. Or we find the BV Palace is easier than dolphin take the bus to DTD & it is right across the street form the Market place bus stop. We use National/Alamo & have used all of the places. We have also found they have different prices with BVP being the cheapest.

Tipping Disney Car Care shuttle driver

I understand the shuttle is free, but do you tip the driver and how much? What if you don't have any bags?

You can't count on a Disney bus to get you to DD before 8 a.m.
