    Need to rent a car while at the resort this summer.

    This summer our family will be spending six days at Disneyland. One day my son and I are going to Universal Studios to check out the new Transformers attraction as well as the rest of the park. We go to Disneyland several times a year, but have never been to Universal.

    So my question is, where can I pick up a rental car for the day within walking distance of our hotel? We will be staying at the Grand Californian.

    Thanks

    Doesn't Enterprise pick you up at your Hotel? You might check with them.

    Last time I went to Universal from Disneyland I took a tour bus and let them do the driving!

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!


    Check out my six action/adventure novels about Walt's lost diary and his epic quest. Visit my blog page!

    we used alamo, they have an office right next to what used to be compass books in downtown disney.. it was quick and convenient and reasonably priced.. you pick up and drop off right there at the resort.

    Yep there is an alamo right in DTD. Did you buy your package though the walt disney travel company, Costco or AAA or a ravel agent? Because transfers (bus from DGCHS to universal) can be bought with your ticket

    Yes this ^^^ sometimes in my insurance statement or online at their site they have discount deals / coupons look out for those also. Sometimes the company and travel sites have deals also.

    Re: Need to rent a car while at the resort this summer.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I would consider the tour bus if I didnt need to make a couple stops before heading back to the hotel. We usually drive our Suburban and bring everything we need. Like a couple cases of water and snacks for the week. We're flying this time and wont be able to bring all that stuff along.

    I will check into that Alamo. I was hoping to be able to rent a Camaro for the day, but it doesnt look like that will happen. My son, who is nine is a big Transformers fan. And he loves Camaros. He's always pointing them out on the street. If Alamo doesnt have Camaros, then we'll get the cheapest car they've got.

    Thanks

    You can rent anything you want just maybe not from Alamo. There's even a specialty rental place in Newport Beach where you can rent a Ferrari. Of course the rates are obviously outrageous.
