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.

We are out here now, this is our Durango. Hired from Alamo at MCO.










We are 2 adults,2 kids and 1 baby and to be honest find it the perfect size. with the back row of seats folded flat there is loads of room for luggage.

One thing I would say is that with the back row of seats down there is very little room for luggage so you may need a rethink if planning on 6 or 7 of you in the vehicle.

we are averaging 14.2 miles per gallon at mo according to the on board computer.

We had booked a full size from Dollar at Sanford.The guy on the counter looked new and not quite sure if he understood properly! Anyway he said they didn't have any Chrysler 300s but we could upgrade at the cost of $20 per day to a Pacifica or Grand Tourer. DH said no thanks then after quite a bit of negotiating he was offered the Pacifica or Grand Tourer complimentary but DH said he would prefer a Dodge Magnum 3.5L V6 and the guy agreed!

The Dollar guy took the tip and then said he wouldn't swipe the credit card for fuel but asked that we bring just it back full.

We also asked him about a booster seat for DD2 who, although is older than 4, is quite small. He said don't get one from Dollar as they are too expensive - buy one from Wal-mart so we did for $15.

Here are the pics ...
