    What do you suggest is the best/cheapest way to rent a car on the day we check out of AllStar Movies? Can I rent a car at WDW and then return it to the Airport 3 days later? We are doing 5 nights in WDW then visiting family for 3 days before flying home.

    Hi Johanna!

    There is a rental car company located at the Car Care Center on Disney World property.

    The Car Care Center features an Alamo/National car rental service. A shuttle can be arranged for transportation to/from your resort if you wish to rent a car. The shuttle does require that you call ahead to make arrangements with at least an hour notice (407-934-4930).

    In addition, there is another Alamo/National car rental located at the Swan & Dolphin resort, if this is more convenient.

    The easiest way to reach the Dolphin hotel is to take bus transportation from your resort to Hollywood Studios. After you arrive at the Studios, do not enter the park, but instead go to the boat docks and grab a boat ride over to the Dolphin - or walk if you are up to it (it is a manageable walk, but long).

    When looking at both of these rental agency's websites, I am able to price out rentals that pick-up at the Car Care Center and drop off at Orlando International Airport. It does appear that prices are much higher for multiple destination pick-up/drop-off locations than renting/returning to the same location.

    Moms panelist Diane C give some good tips on renting from the Car Care Center. Her tips can be found here.

    Hope you have a great time at WDW and exploring Florida!
