    I'm interested in booking a car for 2 days during our WDW vacation this September. I see there is an Alamo car hire venue onsite, what it the best way to reserve a car if I'm booking from Australia

    Hello Megan!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled to help you plan your vacation to the place where dreams come true!

    I visit the Walt Disney World Resort all the way from Southern Brazil, so I always rent a car with one of the two companies located at the Disney Car Care Center, which offers Guests the services of Alamo Rent-a-Car and National Car Rental. I usually ask my travel agent in Brazil to verify the costs of renting with both companies, and then we decide which one is the best for our needs. I have also booked directly with both companies online, and we have never had any issues as they provided excellent service.

    What I really like about renting a car with these companies is the complimentary shuttle service from your Disney Resort hotel or from other destinations across the Walt Disney World Resort to the Disney Car Care Center to get your car. Once you are done with your rental, they will also drop you off at your next destination. The complimentary shuttle service can be arranged by calling (407) 824-3470 ext. 1. Nothing could be more convenient, that’s why we really enjoy using this service. 

    Some Guests also make arrangements to rent a car at the Disney Car Care Center once they arrive for their visit, but I personally prefer to book in advance and make sure that I can rent my preferred vehicle.

    Thank you once again for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Megan. I hope you have a pixie dusted vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.
    Best magical wishes,
