    I am planning a trip to Disney World for summer 2017. While in Disney, we want to rent a car to visit friends in Tampa. I can reserve a car at the Disney Car Care center. But how can I get to and from Port Orleans and the car care center if the center?

    Hi William, and thank you for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    You will be pleased to know that the Car Care Center at the Walt Disney World Resort allows Guests to pick up or drop off rental cars from either Alamo Rent-A-Car or National Car Rental. The Car Care Center is conveniently located close to Magic Kingdom park, and also offers complimentary shuttle service to and from Disney Resort hotels.

    Therefore, you will certainly be able to make arrangements for complimentary shuttle service from either Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter or Riverside by simply contacting the Car Care Center at (407) 824-3470, extension 1. At the appointed time, your shuttle will pick you up outside the main lobby of your Disney Resort hotel. Complimentary shuttle service is available from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

    You will, of course, want to contact Alamo Rent-A-Car or National Car Rental directly in advance to secure your rental car reservation. Generally I find that the best rates are often those secured as far as possible in advance of travel. Bear in mind as well that there are normally Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder Discounts available for car rentals with Alamo Rent-A-Car in case this may apply to you.

    Happy Motoring,
