For us renting a care was the most economical route since we do not care for Magical Express. We were staying a Disney both before and after the cruise. We only paid $184 for a week. That is less than 1/2 of what it would have cost for a car service where you also have to factor in tips. Getting around Disney is a piece of cake. I don't know why we have been so afraid in the past. We absolutely loved it!
We arrived at the port at 10:50 and checked in and received a boarding number of 3. We where on board by 11:30. We drove from PA and parked at Park n Cruise. WOW what a savings and great service too. As far as tolls Not a big deal for us. We have the Pa Turnpike and have to pay a toll to go north or south.
