My DGF and I are driving from NJ (near NYC) to WDW. We will leave around 2/3AM to beat any DC traffic. We are going to stop for the night because we are doing the Halloween party the day we come in to WDW (9/21) and want to be well rested. SOOO… We’ll hussel the first day driving and drive down, stopping in Richmond Hill, GA (around 15/16 hours of driving). I figure every 300 miles (around 4/5 hours) we’ll stop, gas, rest, food, and maybe after 150 miles for a small break. The next day should be ~ 4/5 hours to WDW (if we do feel up to it we’ll drive the rest of the way to Orlando and then stop outside Disney for the night?).
I did some research and this is the plan I came up with. I know it is a long hull to our overnight place but we figure… rather only driving half way both days. We never drove to WDW but I do a lot of driving, driving straight threw from NYC to Chicago, and from NYC to Hanover, NH and back the same day; A few times. I LOVE hand held maps but just bought a Tom Tom One; I feel like I’m cheating on my Road Atlas.
Sooooooo My question is… does anyone want to share some tips for me.
