    Bring a bike with you on the plane, it's good exercise! Just pack light.

    Seriously though, a towncar, Mears, regular taxi, or a friend giving you a ride - all are good IMHO.

    I used to rent a car. Then I found the towncar services and have not stopped using them. I have used Tiffany Towncar in the past but am trying Quicksilver this upcoming trip.

    Thank-you everyone.
    tigger guy...when my daughter & her family lived there (for about a year), we went off Disney grounds to eat. They took us to a place called 'BuddieFreddies' (or something like that)...yummy.
    Sam...good one. 'bring a bike.'
    Main Street...We're thinking of using Quicksilver this time too.

    I've used Mears (which was great, except for all the stops) and even a limo service before, but have often been renting a car. Although Disney transportation is great (and I ride the monorail even if I have a car), it's tough sometimes waiting for a bus to go somewhere, and with all the stops, takes up to 45 minutes (my Disney-time is valuable, you know) Plus, now with the baby, car seat, etc., it seems like the car is the way to go.

    One other alternative for East Coaters that I really like is the Amtrak AutoTrain. Drive to Washington DC (Well, Lorton, VA) and then put your car on the train. Then it's just a short drive the next morning from Sanford. It takes a little longer, but is less hassle, you get to see the country, and it's a train. (I love trains)

    Sam - I have always wanted to take the autotrain. I think it would be a fun way to get down here.

    I am (was) part of the rental car clan. But now I just hop in my car and drive over.
