Transportation for 5 from MCO to WDW for the aftertoon & back.

Need help from the board..

The day before we set sail on we arrive at MCO. So we would like to travel from the Hyatt @ MCO to MK for MVMCP, then back to the Hyatt after the party is over. There is 5 of us.

Who is the cheapest car service? OR How would you get to MK?


Thanks for the help

Car services are all around the same price - ~$120 or so. You probably want to consider renting a car.

Not to mention if you have a rental car you can come and go on your own terms rather than the scheduled car service times.

car rental will be a lot less than a car service. You can get a mid-size rental for around $30 or less. The drive to WDW is easy if you take the south exit from the airport. Remember to take some $1 dollar bills and a few dollars of quarters because 417 is a toll road and should cost less than $5 for round trip.

Psst! As you near WDW in your rental car, use the Rte 536 interchange (heading west) for Magic Kingdom, not following the green Magic Kingdom signs.

After you get on property then look for MK signs. As you get near Epcot, get into the left lane and there is a small bear left.

How are you getting to port the next day? I would rent a car, drive to the party and back and then drive it to the port the next day and drop it off there. One way rentals tend to be the cheapest way to get to the port for larger groups.

The PP makes a good suggestion, but if you take it, make sure the car rental agency has a facility near the port and provides free local transportation, and have the renter/driver drop everyone and the luggage at the ship before returning the car.
