Well, it was a great trip. I will try and keep this short and sweet. I don’t really have much choice because if I don’t do this live I tend to forget a lot of stuff we did.
Because we were taking the cruise and had to get to the ship somehow we decided to rent a car for the entire duration of the trip. I know some of you like specifics so here they are. It would have cost me close to $300 to take Disney’s bus to the cruise ship. The Toyota Rav4 cost me just under $600. I was going to have to spend the $300 anyway so in my mind the car cost me three. I put around $50 or so in gas plus decided to valet which was another $100.
This is our fourth trip and our first with a car. I have seen and read many discussions on this subject on the pros and cons of a car at DW so I wanted to try it myself. I was concerned about getting lost. I am an ex-truck driver but if I cant get my bearings (N,S,E,W) I’m almost as lost as my DW. I said ALMOST!
While I did get lost a few times, for the most part, the signs make the area almost dummy proof.
For you east coasters it’s a short hop, but for us, it’s a solid day of travel. We landed at 4:30 pm and were in the rental car by 5:15 on our way. The signs from the airport led me all the way there. No need for gps.
