Actually, there was an Avis office at the Radisson. I am not sure if they still have it. People would rent a car at MCO, drive to the hotel, turn the car in, and then pick up another car when the cruise was over. Avis picked you up at the ship.

I just checked and the Avis office is now a mile down the road from the hotel. I guess there wasn't enough volume to keep the hotel Avis office open. Still - it is only a mile away.

That would have been nice. I had called the Avis office and they told me they had a shuttle to/from the port every 15 mins or so. I would assume they could (or do) make the hotel a stop fo rthe shuttle. But a verification call to the office would be a safe bet.

Originally we were going to do the hotel the day before thing, but I found an early flight that gets us into Orlando at 10AM and there is a second that gets in at 12ish in case there is an issue. Either way we should be able to make it to the ship on time. That and we decided to detour at Disney after the cruise, so I didn't want to incure the extra day

Thanks Dave and Jim, for checking and all your advice. I'm going to call Avis. Thank you for all your help with our first cruise and clearing everything up. Thanks again.
