    We are traveling with our 2 year old for the first time in OCT,first plane ride,first trip to the parks. I'm worried about airport transportation. Can you give me any info on Town Car rental? we may get inpatient waiting for the Magic Express.AmyG

    It is very possible that you may become inpatient with the Magical Express.  I found it to be not very magical nor express.  It is a typical hotel shuttle with a cute Disney video that plays while you drive to your hotel.  There are multiple hotel stops and if your not staying at the first stop, it can be a little annoying. 

    We found it to be more economical to rent a car than take a town car.  Rental car rates in Disney are very reasonable and we were okay getting a more economical car since we wouldn't use it that much once we got to the park.  If convenience is a higher priority than cost, go with the town car.  If you think you may also become inpatient with the bus services within the parks, go with a nicer rental car.  Make sure to go with a company that it located on sight at the airport.  Some companies, like Hertz, require you to take a shuttle to your car.

    For your daughter's first flight, remember to have a drink handy when the flight attendants buckle their seatbelts.  That's right before take off.  I also make sure to have some kind of gummy like treat that my daughter doesn't normally get.  I usually try to pack a few little surprise toys to give her though out the flight also.
