Going down tomorrow, got Emerald Reserved, needed a minivan because a lot of golf clubs are coming with me. Trunk space wouldn't have been enough in a car.

If you need a Plan B in case you don't find a minivan, the Impala has a HUGE trunk, we were able to fit 3 large bags, 4 carry ons, a stroller and groceries with room to spare...

Just arrived earlier today, Saturday, January 14. I was actually picking up a car from Alamo, but took a quick peek at the EA since that's my normal stomping grounds for car rentals.

Side B at 3:30pm had the usual mix of Malibus, Impalas, Altimas, a couple Sonatas, an Avenger, and a few small crossovers: a Ford Escape, a Toyota RAV 4 and a VW Tiguan. There were no mini-vans or full-size SUVs.

Good luck to everyone picking up cars for their upcoming trips!

Thanks for taking a minute to take a look for us National users! Have a great vacation!

Has anyone ever dropped off at the Dolphin? I pick up at MCO and return at the Dolphin a few days later.

I took a quick peek at the EA after dropping off my Alamo rental. It's really convenient since National and Alamo are right next to each other.

Side B at 5pm had wide variety of vehicles: Malibus, Avengers, Camrys, Chrysler 200s, Altimas, Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, and four mini-vans--two each: Chrysler Town & Country, and Dodge Grand Caravan. The funny thing was, I think I only saw one Impala in the entire row. Usually that's the most common car out there.

Hi all,

Saturday 1/14, 8:30pm, A-Side

sparse, couple of impalas, a corolla, a sonata, and...

a nissan rogue - 1000 miles, really nice ride. a little tight with 2 big suitcases and a double stroller, but not bad. Fun to drive. It was the "biggest" car on the EA, not counting the impala, which probably has more trunk space.

Picked up Wednesday the 19th at noon. Site A. The emerald aisle was pretty empty with only mostly cars and maybe one small suv. I choose from the executive aisle and it was full. Had just about everything to include T&C minivans and Caravans. Lots of SUVs and a convertible (a 200 I think) we were tempted with that one. We took our favorite Edge full loaded. It actually has so many bells and whistles from electric, heated leather seats. It has a touch screen which took some while to get use to all the functions it offers. It's a 2012 with 1000 miles on it. It's only the 2 of us this time, so this fits us great.

How long did it take you to get from Disney to FLL? I am making that drive in the reverse in March and was just wondering.

We arrived at about noon on Tuesday, Jan 24... there was some big golf thing going on and all they had were minivans. We drive a minivan, so were hoping for something different. Ended up canceling the EI reservation and picked a Ford Edge Limited from Alamo Full Size instead. GREAT CAR!!!

Do any of the Minivans have DVD players in them?
