    We will be arriving at MCO, then renting a car to drive to Clearwater for a few days. We would then like to return the car to MCO before heading to All Star Sports. Is if possible to use the Express at this point, even though it is 3 days later?

    Hi, Lorraine!

    For your specific situation, you will want to call Disney's Magical Express at 866-599-0951.  Explain your travel plans to see if they will accommodate your family.

    If not, another option would be to rent your car from Alamo or National.  You can pick your car up at the airport, then return your rental car to the Car Care Center located just outside of the Magic Kingdom.  A shuttle will take you to your resort after returning your car.  You can book your car online, but make sure to include the correct pick-up and drop-off locations.  The phone number to the Car Care Center is (407)824-3470 if you would like more information on rentals and transfers.

    If you plan to use the Car Care Center, make sure you will still reserve Disney's Magical Express for your return to the airport.  Sorry folks, we all have to head home eventually!

    On a side note, you might want to check rates.  I have found that sometimes it is simply to cheaper (and easier) to keep the car for your entire stay.  You will have to take in account refilling the gas tank and road tolls, but parking at All Star if free, and you would then have a car at your disposal if you choose to drive in lieu of the bus at any point.  This would also save valuable time not having to mess around with transfers and car drop-offs mid-vacation.  Just a thought!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
