If you take the inland route (81-77-26-95), try to get past Charlotte before stopping for the night. We pushed to get to Orangeburg one trip and that was perfect for us. (We can't leave until after church on Sunday, so we lose a good six hours of travel time, so getting to Orangeburg was pretty good for us.)
like pw said, you have to take i95 for the shore points,south of the border. mytle beach is anotherr hour off of i95.
the way myself and rotlex posted is what people call the inland route here on the boards. heres an idea of times. again this is leaving at 3am, short breaks and driving on the upper end of the speedlimits:
nazareth to va stateline = 2hrs/52min.
nazareth to i77 =6hrs/15min.
nazareth to charl nc = 8hrs/25min.
nazareth to i26 = 9hrs/49min.
nazareth to i95 = 10hrs/38min.
nazareth to fl. stateline = 13hrs/29min
nazareth to wdw = 16hrs/6min
total 1094 miles.
just an fyi, im an outside rep and spend alot of time on the road. if it wasnt for getting gas, i could drive without stopping. theres alot that figures into time of travel. when you hit citys, how fast you drive and how often you stop and for how long. im just lucky my wife and dd puts up with me. lol

9:55 am Delaware state line, Delaware toll 10:15, $4.00
10:17 am Maryland state line
11:15 Baltimore toll $3.00
12:08 pm Virginia state line
12:35 first rest area stop
Traffic in a couple of stops, slow down to 40, lost about 20 minutes
3:42 North Carolina border
4:25 Dinner stop Highway diner, Rocky Mount NC Delicious!! Will post more info and some pics, real diner, real food, nothing fancy, perfect for us.
5:35 out to gas station, getting 24.8 mpg in a 2005 Grand Caravan, not too loaded, but running front and back A/C
5:40 back on the road to North Savannah, GA, expected arrival time 11 pm

All in all it's been a great day so far. We're relaxed, not "rushed" to get anywhere. DD just finished up a weekend of 4 shows of her summer play so she's exhausted and not cranky and complaining ALL the time, just some of it

Already got our confirm call on our golf cart tomorrow and grocery order. Expect to hit the fort by 1, and MK by 4. Talk to you all soon!
ARE WE THERE YET, ARE WE THERE YET!!!!!

Hi Everyone!

We left yesterday at 5:15am for our 6th drive to Florida! The drive was uneventful and smooth except for some traffic outside Baltimore! Our 3 car caravan made it to Savannah at 5:50pm for the night.

Today, we left Savannah around 830 and arrived in Port Canaveral around 1245! Our cruise on the Dream embarks tomorrow!! Life is good!

On Sunday, we head to the World for a week at our Beloved Lodge.

For anyone making drive South on 95, we have never seen so many speed traps and state troopers from Virginia south. Beware and drive safe!!

Take care!!

Our 5th drive was a success!
We left our Montreal suburb Saturday morning at 5:05am, lost a half hour at the border crossing, and got to our overnight stay in Salem, VA at 8:00pm. We finally chose the inland road and I think it was a good choice. There was some construction on the I-81 in PA that cost us another 1/2 hour but the rest of the road was clear. We got back on the road at 7:20am Sunday morning and were in Downtown Disney at 7:02pm. Lots of potty breaks but with 4 kids, what can you expect?

We're having agreat time in WDW again, and are very pleased with our rental home

We will use the inland route again when we go back home next week...but I don't want to think about that right now

Thanks for the opinions and advice!

Wow, over the last two days there have been an unbelievable number of accidents on I-81 in southern PA, MD, and WV. Be careful everyone!

Finally Introducing myself

I've been lurking on this thread for awhile. Next September we're planning on driving from the Twin Cities down to Orlando. I'm sure I'll have a ton of question as the big day gets closer. I'm glad to know that there is a place to go when I have questions.
