What are you planning to do? Some visitors do get by without a car, but it all depends on the purpose of your visit.

Yes you do need a car. Its worth it for the convenience. Then you can go anywhere you like whether your on Disney Property or not.

Its just much more easy and particularly for a family. getting on/off shuttle buss es is a pain with all the gear you will carrying

Definately.

If you want to get the most out of your trip you will need a car. You cannot just step out of your accommodation and walk anywhere, you will need to drive. Everything is quite spread out and if you don't have a car you will spend a lot of time waiting around for transport - not to mention the expense. It's not just getting from park to park, but shopping, restaurants etc. Car hire is very reasonable and the cars are well maintained . The roads are well signed and easy to negotiate.

Nearly everyone I have spoken to that hasn't had a car just doesn't seem to have got enough out of their trip. Hope this helps. Have fun whatever you decide.
