gas stations close to Disney

Our plan is to rent a car from Alamo at MCO for a couple of days when we are going to be over at Universal area, then return the car either at the Car Care Center or the Dolphin hotel when we check into the Beach Club. I can redeem some of our Choice Hotel points for gas gift cards which I hope to use to fill the rental car before we drop it off. These are my choices for gas cards:

Shell
Exxon/Mobil
Chevron/Texaco
Sunoco
BP/Amoco

Are any of these gas stations very close to Disney property?? Thanks!

Go to Google Maps and enter "gas stations near 32830" and you'll be able to see all of them in the WDW area. Or be specific and specify "Shell near 32830".

You could also make it easy and use Hess on site (I use the one by the BWI), and use the gift card/s at home.

There are 3 HESS stations on Disney property and they have favorable prices. The 3 stations off-property but near the Disney entrance on SR 535 in Lake Buena Vista are 7-Eleven, CircleK/Shell and Chevron. They are all very expensive compared to HESS.

I have found that the Hess gas station by the Board Walk has better prices than off site gas stations. It has always amazed me when I see the prices there compared to what I see on the drive in on US192 and 535.

Using reward points sounds like a good idea, but it doesn't sound like you will be using a significant amount of gas. I would just use the most convenient gas station and not worry about. Sure it might cost your ten cents a gallon more, but considering your will probably use less than $10 in gas you are only saving a dollar or two. Also if you have any money left on the GC you will have to hope that the gas station has a location near your hometown to use up the remaining. You may have to drive further in your hometown to use up the remaining amount, which may make the savings worthless.

thanks all. It sounds like none of my gas station options are super convenient so we will just fill up at Hess and save the gas cards for home! Thanks again!
