    Are you able to rent a car on site at Disney Property for 1 day? How far of a drive would it be to take my family to a beach for a day?

    There are three rental car locations on Disney property, one is at the Car Care Center near the Magic Kingdom, on Lake Buena Vista near Downtown Disney and the other is at the Dolphin Hotel.  They are run by National/Alamo. Here are the addresses.
