Check Here For Popular Transportation Links
Hello, everyone! I decided to clean up the Sticky threads at the top of the Transportation Board. The following is a list of links frequently referred to here on the Transportation Board.
**Orlando Airport Transportation (Town Cars, Limos, Vans): The DIS recommends FL TOURS Transportation - www.fltours.com.
The wdwinfo.com site contains a lot of transportation information
wdwinfo.com transportation page -- This area of the DIS includes info on I-95 exits from Virginia to Florida, WDW gas stations, parking, and driving distances, as well as the following --
Orlando Airport Transportation
WDW bus schedules
airport tips, airline web sites and phone numbers
the WDW monorail system
driving directions between locations at WDW
These popular threads contain a lot of useful information for travellers
Autotrain FAQ thread, about the Amtrak service from Lorton, VA to Orlando, FL
The National Emerald Aisle thread features reports from other DISers of what has been available recently
The "For Those Folks Driving" thread has been a popular one for -- well, those folks driving
These websites outside of the DIS are also great resources and have been recommended many times by many members
TSA web site area for travelers
The TSA list of items prohibited on airplanes, as a PDF file and in html..
Flying but want to know which seats are the best and which are the worse? Check out Seatguru.com
Many on here have mentioned Flyertalk, a web site for frequent flyers
Using Disney's Magical Express? Here's their online reservation site.
Need to take a taxi and want to estimate the cost? Check this fare estimator on Mears Transportation's web site. Link originally posted by Kimberle.
Driving and need to budget for gasoline? Check out the AAA fuel cost calculator
USAStar.com I-95 info page contains exit information for the Main Street of the east coast
The I-75 exit information guide is a similar site for the interstate that runs from Michigan to Florida
**If anyone knows of a similar site for I-10 or other interstates, let me know and I'll add it**
Road work continues at the Springfield Interchange in northern Virginia, where the Capital Beltway meets with I-95. Work continues on the Wilson Bridge but may be nearing completion. Check the site for construction and road detour updates.
The three most popular web sites for maps and directions --
Purely for nostalgia purposes -- Plutospup recently posted a link to this site, which contains historical information and photos of various airports around the country, including MCO in Orlando.
Last, but not least, there is FL Tours, the town car company which sponsors the Transportation Board.

May have been mentioned before.
Grass Roots website but very valuable info there. Free info but they have a spot where you can donate if you feel like you saved some money.
Hope it helps someone.

I have been searching all over this site. I know I read something somewhere about taxis vs. Mears vs. private car/limo. I want to get any advice I can to decide how we want to get from the airport to Shades, but we want to stop at a grocery store on the way. Any tips on what's best and what's most cost-efficient will be greatly appriciated. We usually travel via Mears, but they don't stop at stores and we don't want to rent a car if at all possible.
