    We are renting a car from the Airport to Disney car care. (24 hour rental) We come in on a Saturday. My husband will pick up the car and our kids and I will be taking the Disney transportation so we can get very small economy car and our luggage will still be delivered. Our trip is in November and it was only 22 dollars to rent the car from Alamo. We are going to go to the store the day we arrive. We always buy beer (buy the aluminum screw top lids so you can sit by the pool with them), water, fruit, veggies, a roll of paper towels, breakfast food and snacks. We get the dining plan “free” so most food is covered but I like to stretch it by eating breakfast in the room and we need our fresh food and who wants to pay 6 dollars for a pool side beer!! If you want to eliminate weight on your baggage you could buy most your toiletries too. Buy Suave it’s cheap, so if you don’t use it all you can just leave it there:) We are then going to drop off the car at the car care center the next day and they will shuttle us to the parks. So simple and you can pick your own stuff and get it at a place like walmart that is cheaper. For the price of delivery. This may not work for others but it works for us:)

    Hi Dave, just curious as to what other types of drinks are in a Hess store? You said no hard alcohol, so does that mean you can’t get coolers like smirnoff mixed drinks, or bacardi mixed drinks?

      Jennifer I dunno! I’m so tightly focused on beer, potato chips and donuts at Hess that I get tunnel vision! I’ll be there later this week, and try to cover this key point!
