No worries. My Inlaws(Outlaws LOL) live near Tampa. So when we drive down annually, without the TT, we have a routine. And we have little ones. So to drive straight through is not an option. So we are going to follow the same routine for this trip as we did for years past.
I usually leave at around midnight, so the kids sleep most of the trip. No secret there. I drive as far as Santee, SC. Which is just past the halfway point of SC. Exit 98 off of 95. There is a great Best Western literally right off of the exit. The best part about it is it is $75 for the night. Being this is the first time we are traveling so far with the trailer, I wanted to stay at a motel so we could get out, turn in the key, and leave quickly. A bit easier than breaking down a partial setup at a campground. The place has a pool and a great place to eat at the foot of the motel entrance. And they do have trailer parking. it is a bit more than paying for a campground. However, I do not mid paying for convenience. And it is so close to the exit, about 1/8 mile, that I cannot resist. It is about 720 miles from home. That will leave us about 6 hours to get to Disney or so.
If you plan to stay at Disney, Fort Wilderness, I would book it way in advance. We are staying Easter week and Spring Break Week, so it booked up fast. We booked 8 months in advance. I think I am more excited than the kids about this trip.
