Close to a local friend. They live near Niagara Falls, Ontario. That is about 1,250 miles to Florida, so it is a long drive! My friend accompanied her daughter's jazz band to WDW all four years of high school - by bus!. (Her husband has always had disdain for Disney, but I think it was just disdain for the bus trip. Recently he suggested that I plan a trip to Disney for all of us, so I'm guessing the idea of an adult trip with stops at France and Mexico , is more appealing than a bus trip supervising the jazz band.) Relax, take your time and come back when you are ready. We will all be waiting for you and can pick up where we last left off. Have a good weekend!
