Minivans at MCO

Renting a minivan for our upcoming Disney trip. If we get a choice of minivans, which should we choose? 4 people and 4 suitcases. Looks like Dollar right now is our least expensive option ($294 for 9 days - city special). National is $70 more (KLM code) - worth it? We have a Dollar express card, so at least we can bypass counter.

Also considering a premium rental, but I am concerned our luggage may not fit.

October car rental rates seem soooo much higher this year than in the past!

Thanks in advance.

either a Chrysler Towne and Country or a Dodge Caravan. The Towne and Country is the nicest. Both will have two seats in the back that fold flat. I am sure the other makes and models will do the same, but, (IMHO) they no way compare to the two I mentioned.
Premium cars are not rated by size always, they are rated by features. You might as well rent a full size car, which may have more room than the premium class.
I would always opt for National or Alamo. I no longer work for National, so, I can state my preference without bias.
