I've seen so many posts recently about long waits for Disney transportation, specifically buses. Before I go any farther, I'm not trying to start something or put down the people that choose to go this route. I would just honestly like to know why? We are lucky in that it only takes us about 10 hours to drive to Disney from where we live. We've driven it twice so we had our own car with us. However, we've flown down there more than we have driven and we have ALWAYS rented a car. One reason is because I like knowing that if there is an emergency or I just need to go to the store, I can, but the other reason is because standing around waiting for a bus seems like pure hell to me. I always feel bad for the people that are having to wait at the end of a long day. It just seems to me that it is so much easier and less time consuming to rent a car and drive to the parks. If you're staying onsite you get free parking anyway. Of course, my tendency to be a bit of a control freak probably factors into my decision to always rent a car too. So, my question is, why not rent a car?
