Smile Limo prices

Who's used a LIMO service from Orlando to the port? We are a family of 9 and going on the Dream in July!! What was the round-trip price? Doing my research on booking a Limo for a family of 9 and was wondering if some of the quotes I have received are in-line of what other people have paid? Thanks for all the info!!

We didn't specifically book a limo, but with my family of five I booked a van. We were picked up in a cargo van that would have fit 9. I'm not sure about stowing the luggage for that many though. Even in a limo I would have concerns about luggage storage for 9.

Regardless, Feb of 2011 we booked a van and paid $230 before tip. This was Orlando Airport hotel to port and port back to airport. On the return trip, we were in a stretch limo.

April of 2012 we booked the same company, again a large van. Didn't get upgraded to a limo, but service was good. This time it was WDW hotel to port and then port to airport. It was $270 before tip that time.

Hope that helps. When booking a large group, you usually book the car type, not the number of people. A family of 4 getting a limo should be the same for family of 9 in the limo.

We also booked for a large party (10). It was in 2011 and through Florida Town Car, whom I highly recommend. We saved hundreds using them over the Disney transportation. It was $250 round trip back then, without tip. Our driver was wonderful, I think his name was John.

We used Noble recently from wdw to port and it was very pleasant - requested a town car but were picked up in a luxury suv for no extra charge. Cheaper than happy limo also. I would use them again.

It was $156 including gratuity one way for 4 people (we used ME to WDW so only needed one way).

Sorry I meant DCL transfer back to airport. The one way was WDW to port before the cruise.

I'm interested in this info too... can anyone else share their limo quotes? Note, there is a pretty big difference between the rates for vans and towncars vs. limos, so would love it if anyone with limo rates specifically could chime in!

I've been looking for a limo to take 8 of us from our Disney resort to the port (with a grocery stop), then port to airport. Here are the quotes I've gotten so far:

La Dolce Vita Luxury Limousines (Hummer limo) = $500 (port taxes/fees included, not gratuity)
La Dolce Vita Luxury Limousines (Lincoln limo) = $400 (includes taxes/fees, not gratuity)
Sunshine Limousine = $466 (includes taxes, fees, and 20% gratuity)
Southern Elegance Limousines = $375 (includes taxes/fees, not gratuity)
Tiffany Towncar = $510 (includes taxes/fees and 20% gratuity)
LimoOrlando.com = $350 (includes fees, but not $18 tolls and not gratuity)

We are using executive VIP limo an they quoted us $300 round trip for 6 in a town car, with one grocery stop. Pick up at hotel to port, then back to airport.

I'm wondering that too, our next cruise I was going to order a limo, but our party has grown to 9 people. Thinking we might all squeeze in there, but doubting the trunk is big enough for all the bags.

We used Orlando Chauffeured Service (OCS) the last time for 5 of us and it was $230 RT (plus tip) from WDW (which is a little more expensive than from the airport). We had a nice large towncar.

We just used Happy Limo it was 201 including tip each way for an 8 person limo. Excellent service. Mention mousesavers discount.

thanks for all the great info! I think we are going to go with sweetwater limo everyone time i have talked to them they have been very professional and sound like they know what they are doing. We live outside of Orlando so there price from our home to the port is 500.00 but if you become a facebook friend you get 10% off So split 9 ways its not too bad
