    Great offer on flight only on way home. Can we rent car 1-way, drive to MCO, and take ME to WDW hotel? If not, can we rent car 1-way, check in, then drop car off somewhere on property near WDW bus trans. to get back to hotel? Can we take ME 1-way home?

    Hi Ryan!

    With the cost of airfare ever increasing, I can understand wanting to save a few of your Disney dollars on transportation costs.When making reservations for Disney's Magical Express, you will need to give the cast member your flight information which will also enable them to schedule buses based on your estimated time of arrival.Since you will be driving to Orlando this will not be an option, however there is another options that will work for your situation.

    There are indeed several  locations on Walt Disney World property to pick up and drop off rental cars.
    • The AAA Car Care Center serviced by Alamo and National offers complimentary shuttle to and from your Disney Resort or Disney Parks. 
    • The Dolphin Hotel, also service by Alamo and National, doesn't have a shuttle service like the Car Care Center.Instead you can use Disney's transportation to any of the parks and transfer to a bus, monorail or water taxi to your Disney Resort.This hotel is also a short walk to Epcot where you could transfer to your Disney's resort bus easily.
    Although you won't be able to use Disney's Magical Express upon your arrival, you most certainly can use it for your departure.You can make reservations by calling (407) WDW-MAGIC.The night before your check out, you will be given a pick up time for your departure (typically 3 hours before your flight is scheduled to leave).Also, you will be able to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In Service.This service will allow you to check your bags and print your boarding passes before leaving your Disney resort, which is a huge time saver.

    I hope this helps you to save a bundle on your next Disney vacation,please let me know if you have anymore questions.

    Best Wishes!
