    @ WDW 12/22-12/27. Kids are 8&7. Staying @ Dolphin where Garden Grocer does not deliver. Now thinking of renting a car to get food but will using a car to get to parks during Xmas week be worth it? We plan to be @parks @ opening. thanks!

    Hey Bonnie,

    I bet you're getting excited for your Christmas trip.  I've got a great idea for you, and one that I have used repeatedly on our trips.  We don't typically need a car for our entire trip, but we do like to go out and shop for food upon arrival.  I rent the car for only one or two days and then return it.  The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel has a National Car Rental on premises.  We rent the car at the airport and then after we've shopped and done other errands, we drop the car off at the hotel.  Personally, I would not want to get in the parking mess during Christmas week.  For a jolly holiday, I recommend using only Disney transportation to get to and from the parks.  

    Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays and hoping all your Christmas wishes come true.  

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.
