Pre-Trip Report - 32 days to go before our split stay at BLT and BWV in a two bedroom suite. It's a no-brainer decision this coming trip. Car vs. Magical Express was debated during our last August trip. We had reserved a car for part of our trip and we canceled it. We used bus transportation on our very first trip back in 2001. We drove to WDW in our own car in 2002. The convenience of a car vs. buses spoiled us. ME has changed my mind. By dvc_dreamer at 2011-08-16 Why we'll use ME on this trip: 1. High cost of rental cars - We used to get some good deals. Last year the cost really went up. 2. ME is awesome - Couldn't believe how convenient the service turned out to be. Only one other stop at Poly and then right over to BLT. Our bags were in the room when we checked in just as promised. 3. We have 8 in our party flying in this trip - We'd need a bus or two cars. 4. Split-stay at two resorts within walking distance to 3 parks - We'll only need to take bus to AK. If we do one day at Universal, that may be a challenge. We received our ME passes on Saturday in the mail. DW says we have our going but not our coming back. Does this mean I'm stuck at WDW? Hope I can find work. She'll follow up, I'm sure. Anybody still renting cars these days?
