    this is our first time and will be staying outside the resort at Cypress Point Grand Villas. I know that we can take LYNX from MCO. I would like to know if there is a local bus route or alternate transportation other than a taxi to get to WDW?

    Hi, Ursula,   I am unfamiliar with this particular resort, so you may want to call Cypress Point and speak to the resort concierge to see what the transportation options are.   I suggest you calculate what all your transportation will cost (airport transfers and park transportation) and compare that to renting a car.   You may find it is about the same to just get a car and have the flexibility of getting around on your own.   If thinking of renting a car, go to www.mousesavers.com.  where they have a list of car rental company discount codes that can save you some money!

    When we stay off property, we always find it easier to rent a car.   There are some additional costs:  parking tolls at theme parks, highway tolls, and gas, but for the time it saves and being able to run to the grocery store or restaurants, even if it costs a few dollars more than taxis and shuttles, it is worth it!  We like to check for "city specials" at www.dollar.com  where we often get some good deals.

    Good luck to you and I hope you have a great vacation in the Orlando area.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
