    Hi moms and dads! Love the panel! Question about renting a car. Pick up at airport or go through the Disney Car Care Center? We are coming in July.

    Hi, Nancy!   My family often rents a car when when we go to Disney.   We like to pick it up right at the airport so we don't have to wait for Magical Express.   Also, this gives us flexibility to stop off at a grocery store (Publix is our favorite) or even a stop at an Outlet Mall (hey, this is mommy's vacation, too!) 

    If you only need a car for a day or 2 during your vacation for a drive to the beach or other location, then the Car Care Center is a good way to go.   But if you plan to use your car during your entire vacation, simply pick it up at the airport.   You might want to check for rental car company discount codes.   Keep checking rental company websites as rates change often.   We like to rent from a company that has their cars right at the airport (such as Dollar) without having to take a shuttle. 

    If you rent from the airport, have some dollar bills and quarters ready for the tolls.    Have a great stay in WDW!
