    what is available for transportation from Orlando Airport to Disney Resort and can I rent a car once at Disney for when I leave to travel to Tampa

    Hi Andrea! Thanks for bringing a great question to planDisney! We need to make sure you get from Orlando International Airport to Mickey and Minnie’s place – the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Unfortunately, Lightning McQueen isn't available to personally drive you, however, there are several transportation options to get from the airport to your resort hotel! There are very convenient bus services that run directly from the airport to the hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort! A quick search on the internet of “bus from Orlando airport to Disney World” will provide you with some reliable options! Keep in mind that many of the buses travel to multiple resort hotels. If your resort hotel isn’t the first stop, you should be prepared for a longer bus ride. I actually don’t mind the longer bus ride because I enjoy visiting other hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! It’s nice to see “future options” for vacations or visit some old favorites! Booking the bus ride on their internet site is very easy. We found the bus to be very convenient.

    If you feel that you’re in a rush to get your vacation started or you don’t want to experience a long bus ride, then you might consider booking a private service. A few years ago, our group of nine touched down in Orlando on Christmas night and we wanted to get our vacation started quickly! We booked a van service to meet us at the airport and take us directly to our resort! Again, the service was easy to book and our driver was on time and very friendly!

    Now, regarding your rental car, I’ve had two vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort in which I booked rental cars as part of my vacation package. When I called to book my resort hotel and tickets, I asked the friendly Cast Member to provide me with a quote for a rental car. The Walt Disney World Resort partners with well-known rental car companies that are housed right on property! To rent a car as part of my vacation package was less expensive than if I had booked the car separately. Again, this was very easy to book as part of my vacation package! When possible, I always prefer booking everything directly with the Walt Disney World Resort rather than using third parties. That way I can simply arrange things through one person!

    Andrea, I hope this information is helpful as you continue dreaming of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Happy Planning!
