    We need a rental car at the end of our Disney trip to visit the local beaches. Where are the rental car locations inside Disney World and are there shuttles that could pick me up? I’ll be at Arts of Animation.

    Hi Shannon,

    Welcome back to planDisney!

    Yes, there are car rental capabilities on the Walt Disney World Resort property! Through The Car Care Center - Car Rental Facility close to Magic Kingdom Park, you’ll be able to rent cars from companies like Enterprise, Alamo, or National. The Facility is open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. You’ll want to plan your pick-up in advance so the timing works for your schedule.

    There is complimentary door-to-door service from the Disney Resorts Collection hotels to the Car Care Center! You’ll just call (407) 824-3470 ext. 1 to make arrangements. Disney suggests calling at least an hour ahead of the time you’d like to be picked up and being ready at that time right outside of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort lobby. You can also get a shuttle from the Theme Parks if that’s easier for your schedule!

    If you’ll be returning your car to the Car Care Center, remember there is also After Hours Vehicle Return for Alamo customers. Keep in mind that you will need to find your own transportation back to your Resort via ride-share service since the Car Rental Facility shuttles do not run after hours and this isn’t on the Walt Disney World Resort transportation loop. If you’re returning the car during office hours, the shuttle should be available!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you research your rental car options. If you have any other vacation or planning questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
