    Thinking of seeing a NFL game while we are at Disney. How far of a drive r we looking at to Jacksonville, Miami , or Tampa? Can we rent car from the resort at Disney? Or get one delivered to resort from outside company? Thanks do much!!!!

    Hi there, Danelle!

    It's a great idea to combine Florida fun while you are on your Walt Disney World vacation!

    From Disney to Jacksonville, you're looking at about 130 miles, so roughly 2-3 hours, depending upon traffic.

    Disney to Tampa is about an hour's drive.

    Disney to Miami will be your longest distance; it's about 230 miles, or about 4-5 hours, again depending upon traffic.

    Please remember that these are very general figures, based on city centers. Distances to stadiums will vary.

    And of course there are rental car options for you at Disney!

    Alamo® Rent A Car, the Official Rental Car of Walt Disney World Resort, has a location at the Car Care Center near the parking exit of the Magic Kingdom; there is also a desk at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel.

    For Emerald Club customers, National Car Rental® also has a location at the Car Care Center.

    Shuttle service between the Car Care Center and your resort location is provided 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. — 8:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. — 6:00 p.m. (holiday hours may vary). Shuttle service should be scheduled at least one hour in advance. The phone number of the Car Care Center is (407) 824-3470

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
