    Universal Orlando comes up with an answer to Magical Express - Free Rental Car

    Caught a couple of ads on TV tonight, USO is advertising the fact of a Free Rental Car if you book a vacation package. I presume this is in response to Magical Express.

    And I think this is a much better deal, as you can use the car to go to SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, Walt Disney World, shopping, etc. instead of being stuck on WDW property.

    Good for them. This is the proper answer to Magic Express.

    Hmmmm. maybe I would be better off staying on USO property? will have to think on it. (see how well the new campaign works?) Kudos to USO for such a good counter offer!

    However, if you want to go to Disneyworld, I think it's still more convienient to stay at WDW and then go to USO from there, rather than the other way around. USO has half as many theme parks, and, statistics show, less visitors. By staying at WDW you get the perks of being a resort guest which will allow you to use your vacation time more efficiently and do more. This is less of a neccesity at Universal.

    How does one do that without a rental car though? If you take the magical express you are without individual transportation. Wouldn't it be a hassle ,as well as eat major amounts of time, to get to Universal without a rental car?

    well there are taxis. I don't know how much they cost to run from a disney resort to Universal but they're all over the place at the resorts.

    The first time I went to Disneyworld we used a Mears shuttle to get to IOA for the day. I don't remember what it cost, but it had to be cheaper than a taxi. However, that does sound like a great deal. I think it's a great idea for Universal.

    Wow. That is even better than Magic Express. I'd much rather have a free rental car. But they won't be able to keep that up for long. That has got to be expensive for Universal.
