    I am staying @ CoronadoSprings but am renting a car for part of the trip from Alamo @ the Dolphin so when we return the car we can utilize the location and go to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. What is the best way to get there to pick the car up from CS???

    Hi Michelle,

    I almost always rent a car when I go to Walt Disney World for much added convenience and I did this same scenario on my most recent trip in December when I too was staying at Coronado Springs.  I was supposed to pick up my rental car at the Dolphin, but when I arrived at my resort I was told that they do a courtesy pick-up and drop-off service for Alamo at the Magic Kingdom location (right next to the "Hess" gas station), but they do not offer this service at The Dolphin.  It does not matter where you have reserved your rental car (at either of these 2 locations mentioned).  You will have to stick to the one that you pick though for the duration of your trip (for pick-up and drop-off), for example: you may not pick-up at the Magic Kingdom location and drop off at the Dolphin and vice versa.

    My suggestion to you would be to call Alamo when you arrive at the Coronado Springs Resort, tell them that you have reserved a vehicle from the Dolphin, but that you would like to pick it up at the Magic Kingdom location so you can have them come and pick you up at your resort on your arrival day and drop you off again on your departure day with their courtesy service.  When your departure day arrives, you will bring your rental car back to the Magic Kingdom location and ask the shuttle bus driver to bring you to the Dolphin instead of your resort so you can enjoy the ease of then getting to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I hope this helps!!!

    Best wishes,
