The rental agency has a shuttle that will take you to the port.

After calling the physical car agency where I would pick the car up, they shared that they did have 1 15 person van they could rent me for the day for 600.00 dollars. ( double the amount they quoted for 9 days with a large car).

In the end I went with Budget and found the one day rental I was looking for for a decent price. But the Alamo/ National situation is true. Even the employee thought it strange and gave me the email of her manger. Her quote was that something must be happening that weekend for her company to block 1 day/ 1 way rentals.
Alamo & National allowed me to do a 1 way rental..

I played around with all the options, but in the end, EZ Rental had the best deal. I decided to go ahead and get a Caravan style minivan because even though there are 7 of us in our group, my parents will be meeting up with their Dodge van and only have 4 people so I think we can either send a few to port with them or at least some of the luggage.

So I played around with the discount codes posted for one way rentals, and it did help, but because we need the care for Fri-Mon morn to PC and then Fri morn to Sun morn MCO, it ended up being about $580. Instead, I did a 10 day rental for the entire time which I got signing up for their email and rewards system (5% off) and then liking on FB (which isn't shared with anyone) 3% so all in total, I got the van for the entire 11 days for $332 which includes all the fees, and everything tax etc. I only had to made a reservation, didn't have to put any money down. At least they should have a van waiting for us, and this company is INSIDE the terminal (which we want for when we land.)

The only obvious downside being that I have to stow the car at the cruise parking for 4 days. However, there are some advantages. We won't have to wait for all the rental car info AND we can leave our extra items in the vehicle (we have two land weekends so actually that will help a bit) and it only costs $8 a day, or about $45 total. Not perfect, but better than $500 for two halves of the trip. The advantage too is that once the parking shuttle comes, we can skidattle. We have used this parking group twice with great results and they run every 15 min. We should be on our way early to the parks on Fri, what what!

Chase away the post cruise blues with more parks!

So does anyone else think a minivan for Fri-fri through Sunday for $332 all said and done is a good deal? I've never rented a car before but at least its a van for $30 a day.

For some reason, I find it comforting to know that our same van will be ready and waiting to take us back to the fun, instead of going through the process to get a one way rental. I did try it both ways though...

I think I found the difference. I want to pick up from the Disney World Car Care Center. I don't want to pick the car up from the airport since I won't need a car the first two days of my trip.
From the DW onsite Alamo center, it can not be done on Feb. 14th. If it can, I have a great discrimination lawsuit since they keep denying me the possibility.

Are you saying they discriminated against you because of race, color, religion ?????

TwinPrincessMermaid, I have been renting cars at MCO once a year for a week at spring break time the past 7 years and I think you got a good deal with your 10 day rental. We've been paying that for an 8 day mid size. You might be traveling at a slower time, but you are getting a lager vehicle. Never hurts to keep an eye out as time goes on, but I'd be happy with your price if nothing better comes along.

Thanks! I'm pinching pennies trying to save our group money. If I can get it cheaper, I definitely well. But at least I got it for now!
