Can anyone tell me how long it takes to get to Disney from just South of Atlanta?

Also, if anyone has traveled 75 south into Disney, can you remember what you paid in tolls on the turnpikes?

Go Bucks!

Go to mapquest.com and search for directions for your route. That will give you a mileage idea.

I thought Ohio was the Buckeye state.

It takes me 8 hours from my area so it probably won't take you much more than that.

I can't help with the toll amounts because I forget. I just make sure to have plenty of change and small bills on me to speed up going through the toll booths.

We are coming from Ohio. Driving just past Atlanta the first night, and I was just curious how much further after that.

About 4 1/2 hrs to the FL border and another 3 hrs to WDW.

Google Maps provides times.
Cincinnati to Atlanta approx. 7.5 hrs.
Toledo to Atlanta approx. 11 hrs.

I'm not sure where you're coming from in Ohio.

Atlanta to World Drive @ Disney World
Approx 8 hrs.

Tolls used to be a few dollars. I would imagine it all depends on what areas you are driving along the toll roads.

10 bucks in change/small bills should do you for most trips down and back. I think it was only 3.50 each way for our last trip, but I always budget more.

You can use the Florida Turnpike Calculator to get a better feel for your toll needs based on your route:

Do note that there is significant construction/detour on interstate 75 just past the kentucky/tennessee border that is going to add some time to your reservations as it is reduced to one lane going south. It is near Jellico, TN

That reminds me. I like to check each state's DOT/Highway department website for construction zones and closures close to my dates.

Here's my list of links for the states I drive through.
