    Hi Jacqueline, thx for your answer regarding rental car locations. May I ask which online vacation booking site you used? Thx!

    Hello, Elisa, welcome back to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for reaching out to me here at planDisney, I really appreciate it! Let’s see what we can do about that car rental, shall we?

    Elisa, I did an online search through Expedia, the Canadian site with a mock booking since I do not know your dates of travel or the preferred size of the vehicle. When I added the location of the rental and typed in Walt Disney World Resort, quite a few locations onsite became available to me from the dropdown, such as the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, the Walt Disney World Car Care Center, and near the Walt Disney World Casting Center location near Disney Springs. Today, when looking through Expedia, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel showed availability and in my search, it appeared that National car rental was the company that I saw offering the most availability.

    Please remember that I was working with the mock booking as I don’t know when your intended dates of travel are and because of this, you may or may not see the same list of locations or availability, or you may even see more availability. My experience with car rentals, pricing, and availability is dependent on the time of year and demand - it can all be very confusing and frustrating.

    Elisa, if you do not see availability at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, the Walt Disney World Resort Car Care Center does provide courtesy transportation for your car rental pick-up and drop-off at the end of your rental. I remember this location was not your preferred location, but I wanted to let you know of the complimentary shuttle service in case that is a determining factor, and that there is a car rental link within the Walt Disney World Resort Car Rental page that may produce more favourable results this time. Fingers crossed!

    If you booked your stay or may be considering a stay at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel or a few select nearby hotels through The Walt Disney Travel Company, you may be eligible for the Quick-Service Dining Card for up to 10-days of your stay.

    I hope this is a little more helpful to you, Elisa and again, it was such a pleasure offering my assistance today, thank you! You are most welcome to stop by planDisney for a chat again soon – you’ve got a friend in me!

    Best Disney Wishes!
