Hi drivers!!! I'm still so excited about our first road trip to WDW coming up in December. The last thread was so encouraging and informative. Happy driving everyone and keep sharing all the awesome tips! OOPS I was so excited to see this new thread that I posted to it before reading your statement. I'll go post to the old thread to help complete it.

You need to stay at least 10 days to recover from the drive and be willing to get back into a car to go back home.

Not True! We can do a week driving and not need recovery time at all! We're veterans, though.
