Question is, if we are going to pretty much only go to Disney sites over five or six days, do I need to rent a car? I like public transportation, but I also anticipate wanting to go to one park in the am, go for a swim or a splash in the early pm then off elsewhere in the evening. On the other hand, I can see how a car might allow us to eat elsewhere or get supplies from outside.

For a visit of 5 or 6 days, I would not bother renting a car. If you arrange limo transport from the airport, you can generally work in one grocery stop on the way to your hotel which would allow you to pick up enough provisions for the duration. TiffanyTownCar would be one such service. Really does not cost much more than trying to take a taxi or "shudder" the Mears bus which will stop everywhere but your hotel before dropping you.

Disney bus service is 'pretty good' at getting you to/from your hotel to the parks. And with the range of dining options available at the parks and resorts, we never found the need to go offsite for our meals. The time it would take to get offsite and back has to be considered as well as breaking the Disney 'spell' that overtakes visitors to WDW.

Starting May 5, Disney intends to meet you at the airport and whisk you and your luggage to your hotel free of charge. The jury is still out on whether this will be a good thing...
