Exactly! No car means that you eat at WDW restaurants and that other area attractions are inaccessible. Having a vehicle at WDW means that you can save tons of money by eating off property, making a grocery stop on the way (just getting milk, juice, and cereal will save a bundle!), etc. One day spent at another attraction will lose Disney more money than the bus transportation costs them.

We've been cruising with DCL since January 2006 and they've always charged for DCL transport - about the same amount each time, I think ($30-ish?).

Magical Express is free, but getting the guests who fly into Orlando to WDW increases resort traffic/revenue vs non-Disney hotels, eh?
