I tear up whenever I hear "Welcome Home."
- Nov 28, 2006
Hello there. We haven't had a young one in years, but when we did, we always left RI at midnight and would drive straight through to Disney and be most of the time by 9 pm. Our 2 sons were great in the car and we just had plenty of things for them to do. My husband drove the entire trip and would stop when we needed gas, which is when we would get out of the van and let them run for a few minutes. Each child is different, but that always worked for us. When leaving, we would try for the same schedule, but if we ran late in the am, we would end up staying over in VA and then head the rest of the way the next morning. Good luckHi everyone. We drove back from our march 2020 trip and loved the ride. We live in ma and didn’t have a plan, we drove until Richmond stopped and then made it home in about 8 hrs. Now this time we have a 20 month old. He LOVES the car but is he going to still love the car when he’s stuck in his seat for two days? Boy I hope so. My question is to other roadtrippers who’ve done it with toddlers or babies. We have two potential plans one is to leave mid day around nap time after lunch but this doesn’t put us into a great place for our overnight stop. Option 2 is to leave at bedtime about 7 or so. But then we are driving at night with impaired drivers and through the cities any tips? We know we’ve got I avoid rush hour in nyc, dc etc and we are leaving midweek so it’s something to contend with. Thanks for the help everyone. Happy driving.
