LYNX bus. ($2, $4.50 for day unlimited, $16 for week unlimited)What about getting from MCO to a Disney Springs hotel? Is using Uber/Lyft a reasonable plan, at a reasonable price? My Disney Springs hotel has service to the parks, or I can walk over to Saratoga Springs and take a bus from there, but I have to GET to the hotel from the airport (and back)!
Other thing with driving is that the Disney Springs and Disney hotels all charge $15-$40 a day for parking. So that cost can add up and you would have to go further offsite for free parking hotels.We would be. We found that we're more likely to use a mix of Disney transportation plus Uber/Lyft, and that in doing that, even when car rental prices were normal, we still saved a few bucks and we never had to drive, which is the real benefit for us, personally. We like driving-free vacations.
Yes.Would I be getting myself into a tight spot relying only on ridesharing?
Where you stay will matter on the convenience of getting around. I have seen people rely on public transportation (Lynx) although I wouldn't advise it. But it is a very inexpensive option.I'm still struggling to decide where to stay. I won't have a car, and the hotel I'm considering doesn't have a shuttle.
I thought they meant enough Uber drivers.Enough drivers? That's something to consider especially if the rental car agency charges for additional drivers outside of your spouse. Don't assume everyone in your party is approved to drive.
Actually it is. It's a public bus and I see people bring luggage on it from the airport all the time. In fact the LYNX-111 is called the Airport Express and goes from MCO to Sea World.Lynx is a city bus. Its not designed for airport passengers with luggage. It will work if you have a backpack or maybe a small roller bag
Can you stow luggage under the bus? Does the bus have large bins in the bus to stow luggage? Buses to offsite car rental lots do.Actually it is.

The bus is for the public. For everyone. Hence public bus.Can you stow luggage under the bus? Does the bus have large bins in the bus to stow luggage? Buses to offsite car rental lots do.
Is the bus primarily designed to transport employees to work?
SW allows 2 checked bags, one bin bag and 1 personal item per pax. Such a person would have issues using a public bus.
I doubt it, though I'd be happy to be corrected.I would be "comfortable" with it, but I can't imagine it'll work out any cheaper than just renting a car.
Car rental should be about $40 per day after taxes and fees. Uber gets expensive quickly if you need to upgrade your service category or add a car seat. You also have the large bookend costs of getting to and from the airport.I doubt it, though I'd be happy to be corrected.
I mean, it depends on the situation, but parking alone at Disney parks is going to run $25 per day. Let's say a car costs $50 per day, that's $75 right there. I've heard Uber quotes for non-peak at around $15 each way, but let's say even $30 each way to account for some peak times, that's running cheaper than a car. And I think every assumption I just made is too pro-rental.
Again, please correct me if I'm missing something.
