We had 5 take a limo to MCO-about $65 plus tip. Took about 25 minutes total from walking out the door of the Dolphin, no ressie even. ME is 3 hours before the flight-fun but time consuming.

With FP+ I can see a cab/limo as our new choice. That way we can check out at 11 and send the bags home on Delta (S&D/BW/BC whatever) walk over to EPCOT or DHS for lunch and 3 afternoon FP+ and catch our 8PM flight back easily.

HaHa-actually that's what they called it, it was a Town Car and they had vans for even larger parties, I think even the same price.

They are just in a line all day waiting for someone to come out.

I totally agree with this. We love BWV and are dying to stay at BCV. But when budget is an issue or discounts aren't available, S/D is our next choice.

We're DVC members and our home resort is BWV. We usually fly in on a Thursday or Friday. The pts. needed are these days are ridiculous-close to if not double. We usually spend these first couple of nights at the Swan/Dolphin because the location is the only a minute away from BWV. Sometimes we stay at CSR.

I used to be into the whole Disney theme being important but after so many trips, I'm over it. A few hidden Mickeys in bedspreads or carpets does not equal having comfortable beds. Disney's deluxe resorts have understated Disney theme anyway.

OP, I don't know if you all are like us but after a long day in the park, we like to order room service, kickback, and order a movie to help us unwind. CSR offers limited room service and unless it's changed since last October, WDW doesn't offer movie ordering at any resort.
