toll roads

I know this has been asked 1000 times and I can't get the link to work on my phone. How much are the toll roads on the Florida turnpike ?

I bring along my GPS and set it to avoid tolls.....adds literally 4 minutes between MCO and Disney. And no need to lug quarters on the plane and then dig around for them in the car! Not to mention that 4 minutes saves about $4 in tolls

But, since that doesn't actually answer your question, here is a link to a great photo that shows you the tolls:

The term "Florida's Turnpike" refers both to Florida's 461-mile system of toll roads and to the specific toll road that stretches from I-75 northwest of Orlando almost all the way to the southern tip of the Florida mainland.

The tolls depend on where you enter and exit the Florida Turnpike and whether you pay the cash/plate rate or the SunPass transponder rate.

Or are you asking about tolls from Orlando Int'l Airport to Walt Disney World?

Here's the official website for Florida Turnpike toll rates: http://www.floridasturnpike.com/tools_tollrates.cfm

Just take a roll of quarters with you and you will have money left over.

Read on another post somewhere here, if renting a car get receipts for the tolls in case you have to dispute a non-paid toll charge from your rental company.

Next trip I will try the no-tollway routes or get a proper transponder. Stopping at the tolls can take time during peak times and also burns more gas.

Last Dec I rented a car from Alamo and used their transponder. They charge $2.95/day used (not every rental day) up to $14.95 max plus cost of tolls. I was charged about $12 after my trip for both to/from MCO.
