WDW is my Shangrala...and I'm going...life is bett
- Jan 9, 2000
Has anybody driven from either of these two areas. We are stopping Williamsburg for a few days and I'm wondering how long the drive to WDW is from VA
sbdw said:It is around 12-12/12 hrs from williamsburg to orlando. If you know some of the back roads you can shave off 45 minutes or so. But would recommend saying on 65 to 295 around richmond. As far as the drive from williamsburg to norfolk that can range. first is getting past newport news where there are several military bases (traffic can be bad) and then theres the tunnel. There always seems to be some sort of traffic before and after that. I would say to give yourself 50 minutes (minimum) to 1 1/2 hrs. Where are you staying in Williamsburg?

We are staying at the new Greatwolf Lodge. Looks like a great place for kids with the 2 indoor water parks. I figure we can drag them around Williamsburg during the day and let them play at night in the water park.
Skatermom23 said:pumpkinfish Can you recommend a hotel to stay at in Williamsburg? Since we can't get to Disney this year we have to settle for Water Country and Busch Gardens, but we have no idea where to stay. I doubt we will be at the hotel much and I don't mind paying $150-200 a night. I guess in a pinch we can stay at the Embassey Suites. I generally have good luck there. Any suggestions?
rbork said:12 hours. If your starting in Norfolk - add time, dont go during rush hour. Jammed w/ military traffic etc around the base and tunnel. We prefer Williamsburg, really nice there with alot to see and do!
