My daughter and I have decided to drive to WDW from NJ this August. Our trip will be extended by 4 days (not at WDW). We are leaving NJ on 8/19 and taking our time driving to orlando for our 8/21 check in. I have NEVER driven this far before and have no idea how to begin picking hotels to stay in along the way.
I woud love to hear from Mousebuzzers who have driven from the NJ, NY, PA area. Where do you normally stop? Should I attempt to go straight through?
We are excited as this will be our first time having our car at WDW. We have always wanted to do the outlets and this will enable us to. We are also excited about being able to stop and see things along the way.
Which landmarks should I make sure to stop for?
Is is better to leave early morning or evening. The 19th is a Friday, so there will be some traffic to contend with I am certain. Which areas should I avoid?
Lastly, WDW is pretty much a straight run down 95 South according to my DBF who has driven it twice. IS there a sneaky route that will save time?
Thanks to all for your help in advance.
