    My friend from work is flying out to Disney at the end of may next year. They are staying in a villa in kissimee and are intending to hire a car for the length of their stay. There will be four adults and two children and they don't know whether to hire one or two cars ? any recommendations on the size of the cars? which is the cheapest hire car company ? :p015:

    We booked through USrentacar and the car was from Budget.

    We booked a 2 door compact ( knowing they don't do 2 door cars ;-)

    We got lucky and got 2 upgrades and got a Full Size

    We have ordered a 7 seater from Dollar but want them to take out some seats so we can put a scooter in the back. Anyone know if they do this?
