Cheating on the Mouse!

For the first time ever, we are going to be cheating on the Mouse and staying our first two nights at the Nick Hotel... does anyone know if they offer any type of shuttle to/from the airport?

My kids are averse to taking a taxi (bad experience) and we would rent a car but none (yes, NONE!) are available in the size we need (minivan) on the date we fly in... so, shuttle? or car service (FL Tours?)?

we have a car reserved for the second day (and dh will take the least expensive mode of transport to airport to pick it up alone) which will get us around Orlando and over to WDW on the 3rd day of our vacation.

Also, although i have not looked at a map, it seems that WDW may be closer than the airport to the Nick, is it? if so, we may rent from there if taxi is only alternative and the CCC or Dolphin have a minivan available. (Right now they do not.)

Thanks!

have you thought about renting from enterprise- they will pick you up at the Nick hotel. also, you might want to see if there are any other local car rentals near your hotel
