Typical minivan rates for June?

Does anyone know what I can expect for a typical minivan rate in June for a week? I am trying to put together a budget for our trip. We would be flying into MCO on a Fri, driving to cocoa beach that night, then going on a 4 day cruise Sun-Thurs, then driving back to the airport thurs. We have one child in a car seat and one in a booster we would be bringing if we rent a car, so for that reason and the high cost of renting seats, I dont think it would work to do two one way rentals(nowhere to store the seats), we would probably be better off renting for the week and parking it. We have 6 of us so need a minivan.

Trying to figure out if it will be ultimately cheaper to rent a car like above or go with happy limo or some other transport. If its a toss up, we would rent the car.

Thanks for any help!

We have a standard SUV booked for Christmas week. Mini vans were the exact same price when we made our reservation (we only have three people, though, and drive an SUV at home, so the SUV made more sense for us than the van).

Price for one week (Sunday to Sunday) was $302 taxes included with Budget using the Travelocity public code X474200. We also have a coupon code which will get us $25 off when we return the vehicle, for a final total of $277. So far, this code has yielded the best price we could find on a van or SUV.

Not sure if Christmas week prices are comparable to June, but I can't imagine June being any worse. Christmas is the busiest time of the year in Orlando.

I used the same Travelocity public code and coupon for April and got the same exact rate. Try it and see if it works. I thought it was a good rate for a mini van for a week.
