Also, any suggestions on places to stay? Thinking of either two short days and one long there, and two long back.

Thanks!

We are planning on driving down for the second time this August from SE Mass with our 9, 11 and 13 year old kids. We leave around 6pm, my husband drives til about midnight where I pick up and drive til morning. The kids sleep for the night and when we switch driving again around 7am we have breakfast. My husband and I then switch driving whenever we get tired and stop for lunch. Last year we were in Disney by 4pm. We were tired but too excited and made it to the fireworks that night in the Magic Kingdom.
We stay on 95 the whole way but we do go over the Tappan Zee Bridge. We seem to miss all traffic for the most part leaving at this time.

We are looking at driving with two 13 year old girls, 10 year old boy (will be 10 when we get to FLA), 7 and 5.5 year old boys. My hubby and I are leaving Canada at around 2pm and getting to Florida the next day.

We will be driving to WDW from OH. We will be going I75 South and taking the Florida Turnpike. The past couple of times, we have taken what I believe is called the Western Beltway off of the turnpike. I can't remember for sure if that is what it is called and what the exit is. It always seems to be less crowded to get in that way than going straight down the turnpike to the WDW exit if I can remember correctly. We are staying at All Star Sports. I would love for any help with this that you all are able to give.

Thanks in advance.
We are from Columbus and like taking 77 to 26 to 95 much better than 75

Why do you think it's better? How much extra time does it add to your trip? Thanks!

My mom and I are driving from the Worcester area next month and I'm glad to hear there were no problems because we will be doing 95 most of the way.

Ok its time for another trip to WDW, We leave Aug 8th and arrive on the 11th Needless to say we do not rush on the way down as I am the only driver.

This time from CT I95 to RT 301 to bypass DC and Northern VA, back to I 95 stopping in Richmond VA the first night. Night two and three in Savanna Ga, then onto WDW arriving on the 11th

On the way home renting a cabin in Servieville Tn for two days then maybe Haggersville MD or Mechicansburg PA before getting back to CT Avoiding I 95 most of the home.

WDW here we come.

Park addresses for GPS?

We decided to use a rental car (thanks Dollar for the fabulous deal!). We have driven our own car before and I remember it being very easy to get around, but to be safe we will bring our GPS from home. I will be entering addresses in before we leave home for the parks, Sea World, our resort (SSR) and the airport. Where is the best place to get these adresses? Thanks!

This is a tough one. We have no choice but to head out on a Friday morning from Southeastern, Mass. The earliest we can leave is 3am, which means we will hit the wall of NY traffic at the worst possible time. We have always traveled on a weekend, and had no problem with I 95 over the GWB. We know this route will be a nightmare on a weekday, so with that said will the Tappan Zee Bridge route really be the the lesser of 2 evils? Is this the only alternative?
