    I didn't ask about that airport. But she did ask me which airport I was going to so she could quote me accurately! So that might mean they go to Sanford. I would call and ask.

    We are going down to universal in a few weeks and was going to use Tiffany.

    last time we were down a few months ago - We had Jack Jordan as our driver, he said he was an independent contractor through Tiffany.

    Honestly he was one of the best drivers from there that we ever had! He's a nice older guy who is proud of his car, keeps it clean, is patient, arrives early and is happy to wait.

    He said he was a POW and we talked on the ride back. If he is one of the 2 cars they have and he is available I will book him.

    I think it's cheaper to rent a car....what about renting for one day,and returning somewhere near Universal,if you don't need it to get back to MCO?
    we have a rental car for 10 days that's less than 150.00

    but we do have to pay to park at HRH,so there's that.
    but we need a car to get to Disney after Universal,so it works out

    Was that $55/person or for the whole travel group? We have 4 of us & trying to find the best deal from HRH to MCO.

    My family of 5 is travelling to Universal and then Disney in April. We're staying at HRH for the first 3 nights, then renting a car and switching to a rental home with another family for the rest of the vacation. Are there curbside minivan taxis at MCO, or would we need to go through a shuttle service to get a van? Between the 5 of us and my wife's habit of overpacking, we don't really fit in a regular car. It sounds like tiffany towncar isn't the way to go anymore - any chance anyone could post the forbidden company name backwards or something? :confused3

    i can't help with the company, don't want the points.......

    i quit using tiffany some years back.



    have your wife wear lots of layers of clothes so the suitcase won't be overpacked.
    just put the shoes in the luggage then.


    yes, there are curb side taxis at mco.

    might be better to call in advance before you leave on your trip to arrange a minivan.

    Yes, there certainly are taxi vans available at the airport. It is almost becoming the norm.

    OK, sorry, I don't want to get anyone in trouble. Purely for my own curiosity - why is that particular company verboten? Did they get in trouble for posting advertisements or something?

    Getting my wife to pack less isn't an option. It's mostly for the kids anyway, and we're going for 11 days, so we'll be lucky to keep it down to 4 bags. Sounds like a taxi minivan is the way to go for a one way trip.

    Thanks so much for the info and confirmation.

    that seems like the way to go then.


    We haven't stayed onsite since 2002! I remember the taxi from MCO being about $50 back then!

    I just called the HRH and inquired about town cars - they told me that since there are 5 in our party, it would have to be an SUV, at $108 each way. :( Going from 2 kids to 3 is so expensive!;)

    i would call and check the rates for other places.
    be sure to list you have 5 in your group.

    i know murray hill would be cheaper than that $216.

    I just called to check as well. I told them 2 adults, 2 children, 1 suitcase, 3 carry-ons and was told $95.00 each way.

    Last time I told them 4 people, 4 suitcases and she said $110.

    Hmmm.. that is 2 calls and 2 different prices....

    I guess a taxi will be the way to go.

    A van that seats up to 10 people from Tiffany Towncar is listed at $125 round trip for 7 or less passengers, and $135 for 8 to 10 passengers between MCO airport and the Universal hotels.

    From earlier in the thread, it says Tiffany towncar sold off their vans, and just farms out van reservations to other companies. Seems like it could lead to quality & communication issues.
