    Hi. I'm going to WDW late Jan-Feb and wanted to rent a car. I usually take the Magical Express over from the airport and then pick up a car at the Car Care Center from National, which traditionally had cheaper rates than Alamo. I now find, however, that Alamo/National is doing away with the National part there, and only accepting reservations/coupons for Alamo which is 2/3 more expensive.

    Anyone have any experience with the companies around there? I heard Hertz is at the Hilton, and Thrifty has an office in Kiss. but are the shuttles timely? I've been concerned in the past that we would miss our Magical Express back to the airport, because it took almost an hour to have a shuttle pick us up and take us back to the hotel--even from the CCC.

    Thanks for any info!

    Budget is located in Hilton DTD.
    Dollar is located in Grovsnor DTD.

    Both are across the street from Earl of Sandwich and by the bus stop.

    I used Enterprise across Epcot drive and I-4 in Oct .

    And Dollar at Grovsnors this DECs last trip both with no problems .

    Enterprise picked and dropped me off anywhere on sight.

    Dollar was a real easy walk from SSR or the DTD marketplace bus stops

    On our last trip we to ME to our resort. Then we rented a car from CCC the next day. There was no extra charge for drop off at the airport. When you take ME back to the airport it really cuts into your time on the last day. Driving back gave us those last few extra moments of magic.

    The CCC is near MK. I doubt there will be a delay with ME on Pres. day.
