Are we crazy to attempt to drive straight thru to the World?

We live in Central Texas and are 18 hours away from DisneyWorld. On our last trip, in June 2008, we took 1 1/2 days to make the drive (staying overnight in Pensacola Beach) and on the way back took 2 1/2 days, spending some extra time on Crescent Beach (St. Augustine) and Biloxi, MS. We are planning another trip for this Dec. and will only have a week and are strongly considering driving straight thru both going out to DW and coming home, mainly for the time it would save us. DH and I would switch off driving. We figure this would get us to DW quicker and we would get to stay a little longer. By Dec, our kids will be 12, 10 and 4. They are all great car riders and would have enough to keep them busy in the car. I'm not worried at all about them. Plus, most of the time that we would be in the car going out to DW, they would be asleep, because we would leave late afternoon. We would stop for gas, of course, and also make a point to eat sit down meals all the way there and back, so we are at least getting some breaks from being in the car. What do you think? Anybody made a similar-length trip and have any words of wisdom to pass on?? Would you consider making such a trip? Thanks-
