Searching for Cheap Transport!!!

Looking for a cheap way for three to travel from a Disney Resort to Port and from Port to MCO this coming August. Currently, we are looking at $250+. We are fairly light packers and just want to be able to find the cheapest alternative possible. No bells or whistles necessary

Your cheapest option is likely to be a car rental. You can find discounts fairly easily. We had a 1-way from MCO to Port Canaveral, with taxes and all it was under $50. I think we used Thrifty.

Enjoy your cruise!

A one way car rental is the cheapest way I found. I am using Hertz in February and it is $53. That includes tax and a car seat that I think was $13.

I agree with the rental car. We're renting in February and its is about $78 round trip including all fee's. You can't beat that. Check www.mousesavers.com for discount codes.

Echo that a car rental will be cheapest. rentalcodes.com and mousesavers.com will save you serious money. Book early, but recheck rates as the cruise approaches; some discounts don't come out till 30-60 days ahead. you can cancel and rebook if you find a better rate. We typically pay under $50 for a full sized one way rental including all taxes and fees.
