Thanks for the link. As of now, we are still planning on driving for our first time (I did it many years ago - I was not the driver but a a passernger). My oldest son might fly - not sure yet. I am trying to convince him to try it once - it also does not pay to rent a car for 10 nights. He hates to drive it and I hate to fly.

Playground on I-95

I am not sure who is putting together that particular information, and I have posted this before, but I think it is worth repeating. There is a playground just off I-95 in N. MD. It is a GODSEND if you are coming from further north and need a break. Lots of food places nearby and bathrooms. Here are the directions.



Route 24 in Bel Air, head west about 4 miles to a left on Ring Factory Road, there is a large (HUGE) wooden playground on the corner and a few miles down the road is a large selection of food and/or gas stations.

faeriekisses,

We go that way from CT.

I-84 to Scranton, PA, pick up I-81 to I-64 in Roanoke, VA to I-95 and straight down to Disney.

Last year we stayed on I-81 to I-77 to I-26 to I-95. It was a smooth and beautiful drive.

We will go the other way I first mentioned this April. We will bypass NY, NJ & DC.

Ever go this way??

We are doing our second drive from MA and we took 95 the whole way on a Friday of Easter weekend 2003. Not good.
Others that I know will only take the 95 route on a weekend and leave at 5-6am. (I will do that this year) On the way back we took I-95 to I-26 to I-77 to I-81. I agree it was a smooth drive with zero traffic. I think it is about 90 miles more but worth it to avoid NJ turnpike, Deleware Bridge and DC.

driving from Tx

Hi Haley B!! I used to live in OKC, we would take I-35 to Dallas, then head across, and it took us about 24 hours. We did not have kids at this time, so we didnt have to stop for potty breaks, or other kid stuff. good luck, and drive careful:D

cmonroe,

we live in CT. my kids are DS7 & DD10. we drove down last April. we are leaving at 6pm on April 14th. will sleep in VA. and finish drive on the 15th.

we are bypassing NY & NJ by going I-84 to scranton, pa. we will pick up I-81, connecting with I-64 that will bring us over to I-95 in richmond, va.

we like going at 6pm (after rush hour). the kids usually fall asleep around 9:30p-10p. i'll drive for a few more hours. get a room around 1am.

wake up and continue trip around 6am.

we should be in orlando around 4pm.

MickeyDad - disregard

I missed that detail up above. No need to answer this. Sorry for the trouble.

------------------------------------------------------------

Where do you catch 64? Is it near Harrisonburg?

Thanks.

What part of VA do you stay in where it is only 10 hours to Orlando?
Also, do you make any stops in that period, or is that straight?

Also, thanks, your info is really helping me guage my trip.

I have an infant and a 3 yr old, so I will have to make more stops, but the plan is to leave Massachusetts early Saturday Morning (about 3 am) drive your route I-84 to I-81 to I-64 into VA. It looks like from your experience that it takes you 7 hours to get from Conn. to VA. to catch a hotel. That means that if I leave Mass at 3 am, that would give me plenty of time to get to VA. with many stops for the children and then to get a hotel Saturday night.

Then depart early on Sunday (by your experience it takes you from 6 am to 4pm to arrive in Orlando, thats 10 hrs) drive again with a number of stops to arrive in Georgia or Florida to get a hotel Sunday night.

Then wake up Monday morning with a short drive to arrive in Orlando for check in.
