Maybe. I remember when I was checking different rates, I think it was Hertz and Avis both had one-way fees, but have seen others report those agencies don't charge extra. Interesting...

Considering how much money I'm already spending at WDW and on DCL I just spend the extra $'s and use a town car/limo service from the resort to the port. You get to pick what time you want to the driver pick you up to match your scheduled arrival time. No messing around getting/dropping off a car and luggage. We tried the DCL transfers one time, pick up at BW was at noon and then a stop at All Stars, didn't get to the port until about 1:45. If you decide to go with a rental car remember to pick a size that will hold all your luggage, don't get a compact and have luggage for four that you're trying to fit in the trunk.

The for the return we use DCL transfers, especially if the airline we're flying home on is part of the onboard checking group. So nice to not have to search for your bags, take them through customs and then check them in at MCO, just put them outside your door and claim them at your home airport.

As I said, not the cheapest solution but on vacation it's nice to not have to worry about things, just sit back and enjoy.

Have never rented a car or used WDW transfers. Have always used a towncar. Door to door service. No hassles. There are plenty of good limo services. We use Tiffany Towncar. Good luck w/ whatever you decide.

Alamo and National are serviced by Enterprise at Port Canaveral. They do have one way rates, which seem much more reasonably priced than Avis or Hertz (at least for December). You can also easily pick up an Alamo or National car at the Car Care Centre at WDW.

Not sure if the Thrifty info is new...we did have a 1-way rental with them in Feb. 2012. No additional fees or anything. It was a good rate as well.
Maybe the rental dates I checked were sold out. I see that one way rentals are being offered in Dec.

So does the driver drop of your luggage at the port? Or does the driver let you out with your luggage and you deal with getting it to the right place?

Town car? Which company do you recommend? Like the idea of being able to schedule the time I get picked up- being dropped off with messing with returning the rental car. Thanks for your help.

We are going to let DCL take us back to WDW after the cruise- seems the most hassle free solution. Thanks for your advice.

Happy Limo. Their rates are right on their web page. They drive up to the drop off at the terminal get your luggage out and a porter comes over to take it away.
