On the bottom of ressie, says -
1. Airport South
2. 417 South
3. exit Osceola Parkway West (Exit 3)

We've done that in the past except #3, exit Osceola Parkway.

We always exited where the road(?) passes IDrive S on the right, crosses 535 & becomes World Drive into Disney. But I can't remember which exit that is???

Anyone know what that exit # & name is?

Also, how many tolls on 417 & the $ amounts?

I will try to help you, as I asked this question a while back. Assuming you are going to be coming via Interstate 75, take 75 South to exit 328 Florida Turnpike. Drive 39.7 miles to exit 267a, merge right towards South/Tampa. Drive 14 miles to exit 8 Disney World. Follow exit around and drive through Disney gates. Turn left at light/dead end and follow signs to hotel.

These are the directions that another Diser posted for when when I asked the same question. Luckily, I won't need them now, I am going to FLY!!!:cool1:

As for the toll cost, I think if you mapquest it, it may tell you the toll cost. I also think there is a website (google Florida Turnpike tolls) that tells the cost. Maybe someone else can answer that question for you!

Hope this helps!

The directions above take you a bit out of your way. Instead of going all the way to exit 3, get off at exit 6 (just past the 2nd toll plaza) as you've always done. Once you pass under the Disney welcome sign, take your 3rd right and then left at the end of the ramp. You'll see POFQ on the right in about 1/4 mile.

There are two tolls on 417 this way. They were $1.25 each, but I understood they were going up the beginning of July, so figure on $1.50 each. No need for exact change since there are manned tollbooths. When approaching the toll plaza stay far to the right as though you are exiting the road - that's where the toll booths are. The road going straight through is for those cars using Florida's EZ pass.

Thanks to all for your help.

OKW Lover, that's what I couldn't remember - exit 6. Isn't exit 6 the one that passes I Drive on the right, then comes to stop lite at 535. Go straight from lite & that's World Drive & under the WDW arch sign? If so, exit 6 is definitely what I was looking for! Such a fast & easy way to get from the airport to the Disney resorts.

Thanks again everyone.

I would suggest posting on the Transportation board. There are more people on that board who have driven to the World, than may be on this board.!!!
