    We went to Disney World in October 2007, and we drove - but we were living in Louisiana so it was only 12 hours. Now we live in Utah and it'll take DAYS to get there by car (which is why our next Disney trip is to DisneyLAND). I was just wondering how many other people drive from really far to get to the World? Do you do it to save money or do you not like flying?

    We drove once from Denver, CO--took us 36 hours(one way)
    then at the end of the trip you have to drive back--never again.
    I've gotten spoiled with flying now--the same distance by air
    takes 3-1/2 hours non-stop with SW.:banana:

    We drove 21 hours straight one year (NEVER AGAIN) because DH got fed up with delays we experienced at Ohare in Chicago every trip. We discovered a smaller regional airport 35 minutes from home with direct flights by Allegient and have been a steady customer into Orlando Sanford ever since.:goodvibes In fact, this morning I booked our flight for June 2009 at the ASMo: base ticket price was $89 per seat one way. with all fees and taxes we will average about $250pp which is ok by us. From the time we leave our home, we're at the resort in less than 5 hours. Just can't beat it;)
