    Is Disney transportation feasible for a family of four with two boys ages 3 & 4. Staying at Caribbean beach club resort? Or should we rent a car

    Dear Sandra,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to say hello with your great question about planning for your upcoming magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort!

    This question can be a very personal choice for each family. For our family, we have never rented a car because I don't mind utilizing buses, boats, or monorails to get where we want to go. I don't mind waiting a few minutes in order to save a lot of money and to save myself the added concern that comes with keeping track of a rental car. I also like that using Disney transportation keeps me in "the bubble" of Walt Disney World Resort while we are staying there. Having to walk a long distance out to a car late at night after park closing really takes away some of the magic for me.

    Also, I hope that you are aware of Disney's Magical Express, which is a complimentary round-trip airport transfer service that is included in your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. 

    All of that being said, some folks are not comfortable with shared transportation such as a bus, and they may choose to drive a personal vehicle or rental car. The other time that people might find a car to be helpful is when they have a lot of Advanced Dining Reservations at other Walt Disney World Resort hotels that might be farther from your hotel.  

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
