Question Transportation Options - Multiple Trips??

Hi Everyone - hoping someone can help me out. Myself and my hubby will be driving to WDW for a stay at POR 10/18/14 - 10/26/14 for MNSSHP and of course, Food and Wine. Even though we drive, when we arrive, we tend to not drive unless going to the Hess station.

Being a huge EPCOT fan often times on our trips I am very, lets say, "happy" when I leave EPCOT at night. This being our first time doing Food & Wine, I can only assume that there may be more than 1 night were I am very "happy". Sometimes "happy" and buses are not a good mix. My hope is that perhaps Mears or another service in the area offers some type of multiple trip deal. I am thinking we would need a cab a least twice for EPCOT but then we have other plans which would be made simplier if we did not take Disney transportation and did not have to drive ourselves.

I am open to any suggestions, taxi, town car, etc.

Thanks everyone!

Mears runs the taxi service that you'll find at the parks. In other circumstances I would say to get the card/phone number of a cab driver you like, but I'm not sure that would be OK with the way they have their system of who is next (to get a fare) at resort and parks.

Just grab a taxi - there will be plenty available.

Oh, I don't know about being 'happy' and buses not being a good mix! There was one ride back to OKW, early Dec. it was a Saturday night. About 30 people on that bus from Epcot. Well.....I think my friend and I were the only not happy passengers! Man, that bunch had a great time.....singing holiday songs, at the top of their lungs.. It was pretty memorable!
My suggestion? Walk over to BC, CIA the International Gateway, and get a cab there. Much easier than going back to the front of the park! But, there are no pkg deals for cabs. You will have to pay the full fare each time you ride.
