ContInning the process of second-guessing all my plans ...
The current plan is to hire a standard SUV at MCO. Cost: roughly $600 for our nine night stay. Add in: $20 per day parking = $160. (We get free valet parking one of our days at Universal). Add in Uber from house to MK and return on arrival day. Total = $800. Plus gas.
Cost of Uber only = airport to house ($40) + 10 round trips to WDW/USF $400. Couple of shopping trips $40. Total = $480.
Even allowing for variations in costs, we'd save about $200.
But . . . what are the downsides?
Ignoring cost, would you choose hire car or Uber?
