Today's the day!!!!

We will be starting our trek to the World in just 7 1/2 hours!!! Second trip for DH and I. Staying at Port Orleans Riverside. Worried about the drive down, as we haven't driven to Florida before. Anyway, we're both VERY excited! YAY

We're driving from Cincinnati. Should be a fairly simple drive -- just all the way down 75. I just need to make sure my DH does the driving once we get into Florida and we need to start making turns.

I'll try to remember to come back to my thread and post the results! DH is not worried about it at all, but I am a worrier by nature so I won't be relieved until we pull into POR. My car is 11 years old, so I'm praying she has at least one long roadtrip left in her. She's very well taken care of and no issues at the moment, but a worrier worries about EVERYTHING!

Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

safe travels. Remember to take rest stops when needed. I would be sure all fluids, tires etc are checked, and oil changed. Hope you have AAA. It's a great service to have.
I had to use it once in Florida for my car rental. Left lights on, oops. My car at home the lights automatically go off when you turn off engine. Not so with that rental car
