    If we drive to WDW, can we return our rental car on property then go to our resort to check in to avoid parking fees? We want to then take Magical Express from out resort so we can fly home. Is this a possibility?

    Hello Jaynee!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I visit the Walt Disney World Resort from Brazil, so we usually rent a car at Orlando International Airport, visit friends in the area, and then return our rental car to start our adventures at “The Most Magical Place on Earth”. We take advantage of complimentary transportation during our vacation, and return to the airport with Disney’s Magical Express.

    In order to return your car on property, you must rent from one of the two companies located at the Disney Car Care Center: Alamo Rent-A-Car or National Car Rental. You will be able to return your car and take advantage of complimentary shuttle service to take you, your family, and your luggage to your Disney Resort hotel. Please note, however, that you must return your car within the hours of operation to be able to take the shuttle, otherwise you will have to arrange for private transportation. Hours of availability are 6:00 AM - 7:30 PM, Monday - Friday, and 6:00 AM - 5:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Jaynee! Please stop by real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
