How long does it take to drive to Miami from Orlando?

I know it takes us 17 hours to get to Orlando from our home, then another hour to port. So I am wondering how much longer of a drive it would be for us to get to Miami is we were to try to go on a cruise in 2013.

Basically we are leaving from Indianapolis.

Plan on about 3.5 hours to get from Orlando to the port in Miami.

I live in South Maimi and it's about a good hour to get to port from where we live, when we go up to WDW it's about 5 hours with one stop for a 1/2 hour. We don't go on I95 we go on the FL turnpike.

Is it an easy drive? We're doing the reverse, after our cruise.

Yes, it's an easy drive. Just follow the signs (or ask for directions)for the FL Turnpike North and it's a straight shot up the turnpike to Orlando.

I live outside of Orlando and have family in Miami so I've made the drive more times than I can count.

Definitely take the turnpike, and get an EZ pass so you can breeze through the tolls.

Where are you coming from? It takes us 10 hours to go to Orlando (down the east coast on 95), and about 4 hours from there to Miami, but if we are coming from home we don't go to Orlando, just keep going down the coast to Miami, so it takes about 1-1.5 hours less.
