    On the last day of our trip I need to go from Pop Century to Swan-Dolphin to pick up a car from Alamo for the drive back to Sanford airport. Is there a resort bus I could take to do this, will be picking up car at 8 am on a sat?? Also has anyone picked up a car at Swan-Dolphin or do they shuttle you to a off site location to pick up a car?? First time for us flying into Sanford, WE have a car rented from Sanford to Dolphin. Just Wanted to know about return trip....... THANKS... 6 days left for us....

    I don't know if they'll do a pick up or not. You can get a bus from POP to MGM and walk, it's about 12 - 15 minutes (at most on the 15).

    POP is really close to the Dolphin. You might want to consider taking a cab over. You could go to MGM and then walk over. But that will entail waiting for a bus, then the ride to MGM, then the walk or boatride to the Dolphin..could take an hour, and that won't be great for getting there by 8:00. I would think a cab would work out better.

    I used the Alamo shuttle bus once from AKL. After stopping at all the All Stars, it went to Alamo's main lot near MK. I don't know if they'll shuttle you to the Dolphin? I'd call and ask if they do.

    There is no shuttle to the Dolphin for National or Alamo. Here's a tip: there's usually only ONE person working the National/Alamo desk at the Dolphin, so get there before 8:00 and get in line. Otherwise it could take a while before you get your car. You will give the car keys to the valet at the Dolphin, and he will bring you the car.

    Since MGM usually opens early on Saturday mornings for Extra Magic Hour - you should have no problem getting an early bus to MGM and then either walk or take the boat to the Swan/Dolphin.
