Thanks, Aubriee. We have a Chase WDW Visa - yoo hoo! Had planned on using our other Visa with Air Travel Rewards, but we can easily use Chase WDW & spend the rewards at WDW while there. But I will call & confirm.

Re: the gas receipts. We used to always buy our own gas. The last 2 years my husband said let's not mess with it & we bought "their" gas. We think it is less hassle & not that many $s difference. My point is - if you have a great deal from Dollar & it's saving lots $s, just buy their gas if the gas receipt is a problem.

I don't know how far it is from 535 & World Drive to the Airport? Probably more than 10 miles? Is that the closest gas station?

For those savy folks out there who seem to find the deals...I want to rent a minivan (need it for the double stroller). I have rental for about $588 (taxes in). Does anyone know of anything better? I am wondering if I should try Priceline but have never used them before. I have a reservation for a Ford Escape for about $388 but we have verified the trunk dimensions and would need to take the wheels and such off the stroller to get it into the trunk every time we use it which is inconvenient.

Also, I booked ME but have not received my luggage tags so getting a minivan now makes it so I don't need to worry about that hiccup either.

Trying to extend our trip but the car prices aren't going down. Wish we could get a better rate.

I'm looking for help renting a standard size from the car care center 11/20 @ 1pm - 12/1 @ 1pm. For some reason when I go to Alamo's site and select the car care center as pick up/drop off location I'm getting an error message. I'm pretty sure Alamo is there so can't figure out the problem.

Dollar and Enterprise have gone down slightly for me today, $163 with Dollar for an Intermediate 11/23-11/30 and $171 with Enterprise. At last it's started moving in the right direction. No codes for either, city special for Dollar.

My Escape has far more cargo space than my parents minivan. I can easily fit the double stroller in the back of my escape. It seems weird that the dimensions won't work. Is your stroller overly large?

CCC is $426.01 (all taxes and fees) If you have a VISA card there is an e-coupon AD2338FDF for $30 off bringing the total down to $394.14.
Are you flying into MCO? Their prices are much better for that same time period. $238.63 or $203.49 with coupon.

Speaking of refueling within 10 miles of the airport, where would that be? Thanks in advance.

Got an "answer" from Dollar - infer with your own discretion! I found the information I highlighted in blue to be the most helpful.

Quote:
Thank you for your email.

Our Refueling information is listed under the IMPORTANT LOCAL POLICY INFORMATION link, under the Rate info on Dollar.com (and can be viewed PRIOR to confirming the reservation.)

For our Orlando locations, the POLICY information only lists: Return the vehicle will a full tank of gas to avoid refueling charges.

Im sorry, but we have no information on Dollar.com regarding where the cut-off point is for having the vehicle refueled. Our rental locations prefer to go over that information at the rental counter at time of pick up. Yes, most locations do have a 10-mile radius range for refueling, but you will need to inquire at the counter as to the specific Orlando policy.



Thank you for visiting us.

Dollar is out for us. Going to use Advantage. I really can't wait till I get to the counter to discuss refueling and toll policies. I got a better price at Advantage, large full size with all taxes for 145.00. That was with no coupons.

Mousesavers dot com has useful information regarding tolls and gas. I do not have enough posts to post the full link, but the following should point you in the right direction:

mousesavers dot com/walt-disney-world-vacation-discounts-and-deals/other-disney-world-discounts-and-deals/

The information on tolls and gas is roughly halfway down the page.
