    My husband and I will be visiting in Nov 2010 with our 2.5 yr old son. I'm wondering if there are any transportation options from the airport to the Disney hotels that will work for our toddler without having to bring our big car seat along on the trip.

    Hi Jennifer!  I have been making many Disney trips over the last few years with my grandchildren and this has been an issue for me to consider as well.

    Disney does offer their Magical Express service to their guests at the resorts.  You just make your reservation with them and they will send the luggage tags and instructions. If your flight arrives within the framework of the day where they can handle the luggage pickup you will not even have to make a stop at the baggage carrousel.  It will automatically be picked up to be taken to the resort which is specified on your luggage.  You simply head to the location in the airport where you check in for the Magical Express buses and soon be on your way to your resort.  Car seats are not allowed on the buses so this is not even an option.  Luggage arrives some time later so be sure you have all you need in your carry on bags. Please click HERE to read about the Magical Express.

    We actually use other options and have been pleased. We use a car service called Star Limo which will meet you at the end of the escalators and help you get your luggage. Then they will take you on the short walk to a special area under the airport for private car services. It is so easy and quick!  When you make your reservation with them you simply state what kind of car seat you will need and they will make sure the driver has it in the car. The Star Limo number is 407-888-5530 or 407-857-9999 if you wish to call for pricing. There are other private car services that would follow the same rules.

    You can also request a taxi that is carrying a car seat with them.  Many have them in their trunks since this is such a big family vacation destination.
