    As far as the buses to work? I would think so! lol And to Wal Mart etc - I don't think we'll have any problems.

    I think the money you'd spend buying/insuring/fixing etc a car would probably wipe you out. I'm planning on hiring one as and when I need it - days off & such

    The bus system is great, it works! But it only takes you to Disney parks and Wal Mart (and Florida Mall ones a week, if you sign up for it)
    Having a car is great! It's totally worth putting some money into it...
    I don't think I would have stayed a year without a car.
    The beach is only an hour away, but that's a looong hour without a car.

    Of course hiring a car is great too, cause there's lots of fuss with the paperwork and licence and stuff before you can go driving ..
    But I think it's worth it.. And you may find cars that are not that expencive, but it's the incurance that costs (100$ and up a month)

    A Norwegian friend of mine at the commons just bought a 1995 Ford Mustang... which is a really cool ride for just... $2,800 !!!

    You can get a nice car for under 3K

    Ford Mustang :eek: I'm lovin' it!!!
    Well as for the other questions NO you don't have to pay for the Disney busses. They will take you to the parks, waterparks, grocery stores nearby and Wal-Mart. They didn't even go to the Florida mall when I was there :( It's always good to have a car, if you have the money to buy one I say go ahead and do so. It's the best thing in the world when you can drive to the beach on a day off. It will also be easier to get to Downtown Orlando ( since a bus ride takes over an hour I think ). I didn't have a car ( because I'm poor lol ) and I still got around. You will have many friends with cars and just rent one if you want to go on a road trip.
    The worst part will be going to Wal-Mart without a car! It's such a DRAG! I was so glad I lived in Building 8 which was right next to the bus station. Wouldn't want to carry all your bags to Building 28.

    I'd love to buy a car out there, but I really don't think I could afford it.

    I'm selling my car over here too, and Im gutted as well lol shes my baby :( and we've been round the country a few times together :(

    Anna, I know what you mean! I had just bought my car a few months before I went to Orlando and had been going on HUGE trips with it!
    Always hard to part from a car! I basically live in mine!

    I think I have lived in mine too, I've literally been all round the country in it (cos of my boyband obsession ;) ). I'm going to miss the independence of having my own car.

    It goes tomorrow :( have to say goodbye (oh lord im worried about saying goodbye to a car, god help me saying goodbye to everything else)!!

    You could make your drivers license down there in Florida. It's sooo much cheaper ( and easier ).
