We had a chevy suburban last October. We were booked for a 7 seater minvan, but got an upgrade to this. It was a 7 seater - 2 in front, 3 in middle and 2 in back, but had a huge boot. There were 7 of us, and fitted our luggage no problem, and we had a lot of luggage Picked up from MCO through Alamo.

We had a PT Cruiser in Jan. We booked an intermediate as we weren't going to do much driving, as we were staying at the Poly.
Paul missed having a big car (even though there's just two of us) and we both found it a bit 'sit up and beg'.
Ok for short trips but didn't really float my boat and I think it would be a tight squeeze for families.

heres what we had, will get another beauty like this next year if budget are still renting them. Will be ok for two adults. But the boot is so small, we had to put our 2 suitcases up right on the back seats with the roof down on the way back to the airport.

Last year we upgraded at the Dollar desk in Sanford from a 4x4 SUV to the amazing HUGE Dodge Durango. It even had a DVD player built into the ceiling in the back to keep the kids happy!




This picture shows Freddie and Harry in the the middle row of seats that were folded down for most of the holiday and acted as tables. The boot was huge held lots of luggage no problem.

We have booked a full size 4 door this year, but if the option of an upgrade to the Durango arises, I don't think DH will be able to say no

sorry...haven't got interior pics, but after we got over the the horror of our first impressions (we didn't get a choice of hire car from disney car care), but we grew to love our economy Chevrolet HM...ugly or what? but it was really roomy and fitted our 3 large cases from Matalan in it as well as hand luggage with ease.
