We've always used Sun.... Ray. It's a small business with SUV's and we'll absolutely recommend them and use them again. Tricky how it edits company names. $105 rt with a stop if you want.

yeah I hate that it edits...mine should say sun...........state which is $120 RT with a stop. But we are now going down a day early and I was thinking of maybe hitting up the Disney Outlet store just to check it out since we have NO Disney Stores near us anymore. Anyway so I thought hmmm rent or just go with our usual car service. But Im not finding anything to rent for the same amt or cheaper. Plus Im trying to decide if I want to pay $5/day for it to sit at Shades in case we want to use it other than the one day. Thanks for that other place, Im going to check it out!

We always rent a car when we are at WDW.. I looked through Travelocity 6 months prior to our trip and everything was around $ 600.00 for 11 days.. I checked everyday at the 3 month mark and booked one at $210.00.. Then I kept checking and the price was $167.00 (This included all taxes and fees) about 3 weeks prior to our vacation.. There are good deals to be had you just need to be persistent..

We used FLTOURS and I can't say enough great things about them.
When our flight # changed and we didnt think to alert them, the driver called when we were in ATL connecting to check on us. We left him a message lettinghim know what our flight # was changed to and he was at the airport waiting for us. They are very nice, and offer a grocery stop. They also talked to us about the area.

I would def. go with them again.

we rented our car from Alamo - 109 including tax for a Tuesday to Monday. We did have to pay for parking at SOG, but that was minimal. And we never used the car to go to a park, only DTD and BB and hotels. But it was so worth it, just for those times.

I suggest you get in on one of the threads in the transportation forum. There usually is a monthly thread where people post best rates and codes. I checked that daily - and then sometimes watched rates change 2 or 3 times a day. The nice thing with cars is that you can book and cancel as often as you like.

We got a military rate through Advantage for only $125 for a midsize in December for a week.

No I still need to do that. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I had looked into renting a car, but the prices for our trip were pretty high. Sounds like I need to do some new research.

So many of you seem to be finding some great deals.

My suggestion is about 3 posts above yours, so 4 posts above this one. :D

I have a ticket question that I hope someone here can answer.. The past 4 years we have used the Salute tickets and have had to activate them at the front gate.. This year we will have to buy the Magic Your Way tickets because most of our days there are blacked out..(Easter) Do you need to activate those tickets too or just go through the turnstile? Thanks for any answers..

Finally after months of planning and anticipation we will be at Shades DAY AFTER TOWORROW!! Ok, just excited. A little. lol

I have read many post on here about having a car vs not having one. For us, it's never been an issue since we are only a 6 hour drive away and always have our car. But, we never use it the whole time we are there. Never had the need to. I suppose we must take it for granted that it is there if we need it. Not sure how I would feel otherwise. Though on vacation we don't want to have to navigate anywhere on our own. lol As for the $5 fee to park at Shades, to me, that is chump change and not something I find out of line whatsoever.

Nomad: WOW have wonderful trip!!! You are so lucky being only 6 hours away. You know out of all my trips I can only remember not renting a car once. I love the convenience. Hey $5 a night is nothing.. Universal hotels charge $17 a night
