Good to know. This route doesn't show up when you try mapquest, google maps or AAA triptiks, but I think it might be a good way to avoid traffic.

Less than 24 hours to go!

And by the time you arrive on Friday, the weather will be fine; in fact, a quick look at the Lake Buena Vista weather indicates pleasant partly-cloudy skies and temperatures ranging from the upper 70s to low 80s!

All the best.

just returned sunday from my 18th drive down I95 and promised to post this.
I am never stopping in Virginia again.
especially the last 10 miles before North Carolina.
I unfortunately stretched my tank and stopped at exit 8 i think and found poor food choices and the gas was 3.57 per gal. Highest in the whole trip including in Disney World. Gas in NJ when I got home was 3.12
exit #4 (skipper) also a bad stop.

sorry Virginians, I am sure it is no reflection on the state, but my next trip will have stops in Carolinas.

We always stop in Wytheville, VA for gas as it is the cheapest especially after driving through West Virginia which is always some outrageous price. Usually the very cheapest is in Rock Hill, SC, followed by Florence, SC. From either we can make it to Brunswick GA, also a very cheap stop. If wew go all i-95, usually around the middle of VA south of Richmond is cheap.

Yep, it's snacks and "hold it" for us until we hit N. Carolina To me, VA is the last "city" style stretch of 95. From NC on it feels like a road trip! I mean, how many Cracker Barrels and Waffle Houses are there in VA anyway

Indeed! A view of the national doppler indicates a rainy day on I-95, at least through most of VA. Charlotte, NC is clearing up in the early afternoon. By the time you see this reply the rain will be behind you and WDW will be getting closer!

All the best.
