    My children have never seen the ocean. So planning to spend a day at the ocean. Sounds like we will need to rent a car then. We would really only need for one day. Can we just rent a car for one day at the resort or do we need to book with the package

    Hi Paula,

    You can rent a car for just one day. Alamo and National have rental desks on WDW property, at the Car Care Center near the Magic Kingdom and at the Dolphin hotel. You should make the reservation with the rental agency directly. It's easy to pick up and return to these locations.

    The Dolphin can be reached using Disney's free transportation system. And the Car Care Center is reachable via taxi from anywhere at WDW. A ride there from the Magic Kingdom would cost only a few dollars. Or, if you ask at the Bell Services desk at your hotel, it's possible that they may be able to provide transportation for you.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
