Have no car? Need a ride!

We offer hotel pickup.  Just let us know that you need picked up when you schedule your flight and we will arrange it.  The fee is $15 per person and that is round trip.  We will pick you up and take you back after.  This is about 1/2 what a taxi will cost you! 

Here is where you can go and find out what the estimated cost of a taxi would be.  

Taxi Fair Estimator  Remember this is "One Way" and also remember that on the way back there will be heavy theme park traffic so the cost will be even higher!  Also remember that the Taxi driver may not know where he is going and it is not uncommon for a taxi to be late, especially at that time of morning.  Remember Sunrise will NOT wait.  Sure would hate for you to miss your flight because a taxi was late picking you up.  We will not wait!



The Meeting Spot.

Since our flying area is around the Disney World area we meet near the main entrance to Disney World. 

We meet at The Maingate Lakeside Resort.
