    We are planning a quick trip in September followed by a road trip to other parts of Florida. Could I make arrangements for a rental car to be delivered to our Disney hotel? Who would you recommend?

    Welcome, Jackie!  

    How fun that you’re starting your adventure in Florida with a stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks for making a pit stop at planDisney for some guidance on your upcoming road trip – as my pal Tow Mater says, “I’m happier than a tornado in a trailer park” to answer your question.

    Disney’s Car Care Center is a hidden gem and is just the ticket for an easy car rental for your trip. It’s both a full-service garage and gas station for Guests bringing their own vehicle on vacation and a full-service car rental location. Enterprise, National, and Alamo are the rental providers at this facility; you can reserve a vehicle online or select “Disney’s Car Care Center” when searching on their individual brand websites. The Car Care Center is centrally located in the Magic Kingdom Resort area.

    Renting here for part of your vacation or as a follow-on to your next destination is easy, as the center offers a complimentary shuttle from Disney Resorts Collection hotels or the theme parks! Check out all the details on the Car Care Center website, including the operating hours and phone numbers to call for the shuttle. Your Disney Resort Guest Services team can also assist in connecting you with the shuttle to get your rental car or any other departure day details to make things run smoothly for you.

    If you aren’t making a round trip journey for this part of your vacation, you can designate a different return location for the rental car when making the reservation. I’ve rented from the Car Care Center and returned to the nearby Orlando International Airport and returned to airports further away in Florida when my plans called for it.  

    Jackie, I hope this eases your mind and gives you an easy solution for renting a car as part of your vacation beginning at the Walt Disney World Resort and ending in a road trip! Our planDisney team has collectively done nearly everything there is to experience on these vacations, so don’t hesitate to stop by again with any additional needs. We love to help make things easy and help you have the most magical time! Safe travels to you.
