    Running the Princess Half Marathon in February. Flights into Sanford are a lot cheaper. Rent a car or use car service? Only have used Magical Express in the past. It's less than $200 to rent a car. Any experience with a car service? Recommendations?


    I personally would rent a car. I love having the freedom to come and go as I please without having to wait for a Disney bus, and it saves a lot of precious vacation time!

    If you don't want to keep the car the entire time, another option is to do a one-way rental from Alamo or National, who have locations at the Dolphin Resort. You could rent a car for the trip to Disney and return upon arrival, then rent again to drive yourself back on departure day, possibly saving a few dollars.

    If you'd prefer to hire a car service, expect to pay between $100-200 for the round trip. Since the price is comparable, for my dollar, I think having my own car is best!

    Good luck in your race!
