Question Cell phone hire, Orlando?
Hi,
I'm going to be on vacation in Disney (Florida) for 2 weeks with large family group. Looking to hire 3 cell phone for 2 weeks for keeping in touch (no Intl calls). Being from the UK we don't want to use our own cell phones 'cos of the International call charges we'll incur calling each other.
Can anyone recommend reliable, sensibly priced businesses that hire cell phones to non-US residents?
Does anyone know what sort of price we should be aiming for? Rental and call charges?

Thanks
Richard.

I think you can buy the cheapest model Tracfone with sixty minutes of time for about $20. Might be available at the Airport. If not, go to the local Walmart store when you land in Orlando. Tracfone Orders

if this pops up it appears there are several locations nearby and one might be at the airport as Lucky Strike stated

1002richards,

If this is your first trip to Florida, google earth can be handy to study the area in advance, especially if you have a broadband connection.

LuckyStrike,
No it's the third visit to Disney in 16 years. However this time my sister & her teenage kids are joining us, hence the need to keep in touch with each other around the place.
We will use Google Earth though to get our bearings and work out where places are in relation to each other, thanks for the tip.

Richard.
