How to get from Sanford to WDW???

We normally arrive in MCO, but this time we are using Iceland Air which will take us to Sanford, so the question is, how do we get from the airport to POR? Will we be OK in a taxi or should we book a town car? How long will the trip take? And how big is the airport, is it easy to navigate in???

Thanks

A taxi or a town car will be about the same price, so I would probably go for the town car. I would be wary of any company that charges much less than $200. I've never used one myself, but I've heard really nice things about Tiffany Towncars.

We have used both towncar services as well as getting a rental car. We used Tiffany Towncar and it was very nice. I would book a towncar service vs using a cab...much nicer way to go. But, it is going to cost at least $200, r/t..either way.
Also...Sanford is a wonderful little airport. It is ridiculously easy to navigate. I love flying in there. It does take about an hour to get to WDW though...so plan accordingly.

Thanks for answering, I'll look into booking a town car.

It would be cheaper to rent a car and be free to explore other parts of Orlando or go to the beaches for a day than pay for the cost of a towncar both ways.

Thanks for the tip, but we won't be renting a car
