Loved our rental car on our trip two weeks ago. Yes, installing the rented car seat was the usual trial. But we survived. Zipped to and from MCO. Easy trip from WL to Animal Kingdom for EMH. Went to an off-site Mexican restaurant when we tired of "park food". Would not plan another trip without a rental.

In the future, most airlines do not charge a baggage fee for car seats. They will wrap it in a bag and you can pick it up at luggage claim. I cannot believe what rental car companies charge per day for car seats, it's a rip off.

With all the money being spent, it's funny how just a few minutes difference between GETTING your own bags GOING to a taxi, or car service & then arriving at your resort, after paying a nominal fee, is better then putting your bags on the plane when you leave your home airport & not seeing them again until check in. (As in M.E.)

Just the non aggravation of going to get your luggage is well worth ME, not to mention the extra money you spend.

True it may take a lil longer / or not but Don't we all remember we're in WDW. Things take time....There are plenty of lines for rides and/or food that I'm sure you wait longer than this.

For me honestly my trip officially starts with the ME ride to WDW....They set the mood for the whole trip... Obvious to each his/her own, but just wanted to chime in.

You can usually rent a mid size car for that much, for the entire week!

Yes they do charge a fortune for car seats. We have a bag that will hold an infant carrier and base, or a full toddler 5 point harness seat, or now that they both are in boosters, I can fit a high back booster and a normal booster in it. Even spirit (or so their website says) will not charge a checked bag fee for car seats if the child has a paid seat. We always bring our own seats with us when renting a car. However we don't rent a car at disney. While the ME service leaves something to be desired on the efficiency side....I don't know my way around Orlando or Disney properties for that matter....nor do I care to. Sur ei have google maps on my phone, but we all have our "things" for vacation. Some look at DVC kitchens and say...I'm not cooking on vacation. Me? Well mine is I'm not driving on vacation. Maybe some day when the kids are older and we explore other things that are non disney, but for now we stick with disney transportation.

Same here.

And the fact I don't have to see my bags until we get to the hotel is priceless

We've used ME and have never had any issues (hopefully not jinxing myself). Driver could be new EE. Definitely should know names of resorts and their related buildings, if someone says BayLake to Contemp Bus driver you would expect him to know.

We all would like perfection for our vacations, but I don't know of any business that runs perfectly.
