The Problem With Orlando Transportation
Watch this video: "4 Minutes to the Best Deals in Orlando"
Orlando is a great place to visit – it's one of the top travel destinations in the U.S. It's even edged out major cities like Chicago and Las Vegas as a tourist destination. But, Orlando transportation? Yeah, that's not so great.
Some of the most popular destinations like Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios are about 15 to 20 miles from the Orlando airport. And getting to these destinations? That's not as easy as you'd think it'd be. You can rent a car … for about $500 a week. If you rent a car, you'll be responsible for paying local taxes and surcharges, along with every toll you encounter and buying gas. Plus, you'll probably have to pay for parking, which can really add up over the course of a week.
Don't want to go the rental route? A round-trip taxi between the Orlando airport and area theme parks will cost around $100, plus you'll still have to pay tolls and tip the driver. If you're staying at a Disney resort, you can take advantage of "complimentary" transportation via Disney's passenger coach – but it's not really free, if you consider how much more expensive the rooms are there than outside the theme park.
