Transportation

We are two seniors and we will be coming from Charleston to spend a week in and around Disney World in late October. After a week in Charleston and Savannah, should we drop the car off and fly down or drive down to Florida? I understand that we can get an airport shuttle if we are staying in a Disney property. Basically we are wondering if parking for a week while there would be very expensive- especially we we don't need a car.

thanks,

Diane in California

Welcome to the forum

If you stay at a Disney Resort, I would ditch the car and fly

You will have free transport from and back to the Airport ( MCO) as well as to all the Disney Parks

October is a great time to visit, the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot is lovely, we plan many of our visits around it

There are usually very nice Resort discounts for the Fall, we will need to wait a bit for those to be released but as long as you book direct with Disney or an Official Disney Travel Agent such as www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com you can Modify your reservation later to include any new discounts

As a side note, if you stay at a Disney Resort and you do have a car ( that you may not need ) Parking is free, for Disney Resort Guests and the Disney Parks

thanks for your reply. Sounds like a plan. So you think we could wait a while for some deals?

We have gone many times in October and have never paid full price. The discounts will come, you could wait a bit :)

As a side note

When you do book, you need a deposit equal to one nights room rate for a Room Only Reservation, balance due at check in and $200 for a Package Booking, balance due 45 days prior to arrival
