We normally drive, too. We break it up on the way going, but drive straight through back home. We can't wait to go as DVC owners. We also go to Fort Wilderness since we have a fifth wheel some of the time. I love it there but my ds age 15 prefers the resorts.

We're just the opposite. We both graduated from schools in Texas, now live in Louisiana. So our son is looking at Texas A&M, his mom's alma mater. He wore Aggie stuff since he was a baby. I used to sing the Aggie War Hymn to him as a lullaby.

And we always drive. We'll either leave after school and drive to Mobile (Daphne, actually) or leave early in the AM and drive to around Tallahassee.

Now that we have DVC, we plan on driving from here on out.. although with
Gas flirting with $4.00.. maybe flying is getting closer to break even if you find a great SW deal????

We usually fly from Houston on SW and I have gotten a $79 one way flight.

Hard to drive it for that

We normally drive. Last 2 trips we left in the afternoon and stopped for the night in Tallahassee then finished up the following morning. I prefer driving straight through, either leaving early in the morning or driving through the night, but my family appreciates the break.


Go Colonels!
We always fly. Much faster. Cheap on southwest as well.

From Northeast La. here -- in Monroe.

We have been DVC members since 2003 and go at least twice a year, sometimes as much as five times. We have always flown, usually SW out of Jackson MS.

We own at VWL, BWV, BCV and AKV.

Well, to fly from Shreveport is going to cost about $500 per person. We have to fly to Dallas, Memphis or Houston, just to get anywhere. Of course we do have Allegiant, but they only fly in and out twice a week to Sanford.

We have always driven to DW. We usually leave around 3:30am and
arrive by early afternoon. This works out well with the kids who usually sleep
most of the way. Besides, how can you fly with all the stuff we need for our
2nd home!

We drive too. We usually leave Monroe around 3:00 in the morning and get to Orlando around 6pm. My dh doesn't mind driving and our kids travel well. We're planning to split the drive coming back in June and spending a day on the beach at Penscola.

How can you fly? Very easy. Remember you have a DVC property and if you are in a one bedroom minimum you have a washer and dryer so you do not need to bring a bunch of clothes, also, you have the garden grocer and that store on the boardwalk that will put groceries in your room. What do you bring with you?
