We are driving home from Columbus and now we are rethinking driving to Disney World. We have 391 more days to decide what to do!!

It can't be easy. Is it Going to cut into your time spent at disney ? Good luck. - 5disneylovers  1204.1 #6 4:46PM
My husband and I have flown the past two years from Akron. Much faster but flights were so expensive this year we decided to drive. We are driving straight through - 16 hours! But it will be worth it when we get there!! Β°oΒ° - minniemaclean  16.6 #194 9:02PM
I believe we'd fly if it was the same as driving. But for us this is how it adds up. Fly to Disney, get to go every 2nd or 3rd year and no other vacations. Or drive and go every year plus another vacation each year. - DizneyGirl  1014.9 #8 11:04AM
It might cut into time spent at the parks....but might save u some money..have to weigh the pros and the cons - mickeynme  178.1 #52 6:53PM
We have our trip planned out so that if we drive we will be there for 11 days. It's a 21 hour drive from Buffalo and we are going to do it in 2 days. Especially with the 2 kids, but after driving home for 5 hours yesterday and just wanting to get home, we were thinking of how long a drive home from Disney it will be :( and a sad one! Hopefully we can find some cheap flights when the time comes!! - chicky5801  14.3 #207 3:59AM
We drive to Disney every year, it takes us a total of around 22/23 hours (each way). We start after work on Friday and drive 6 hours, stay at a hotel, then drive a long day of about 12 hours, then the 3rd day we drive another 4 hours, which allows us time at DTD or the pool that afternoon. We have driven to long days, but the 1 long day with a short day either side is much less tiring! We never drive late or over night, because we don't want to be tired when we arrive or have to rest a day at Disney before hitting the parks. We live in a small city and we save at least $1500 by driving. To us it's not about being able to afford it, but having the extra $1500 for other things. It seems like if we'd fly we'd have more time at Disney, but we'd have less because we set a budget and stick to it and the more it costs to get there, the less days we can stay. We make the ride there and home an adventure. Surprisingly our kids travel very well and our now 6 year old started riding there when she was 7 months old. - DizneyGirl  1014.9 #8 5:44AM
Thanks so much for the info! That plan sounds good. Our 3 year old is so used to it now, we have driven so much with him. Every year to Myrtle Beach. Our youngest will be 22 months when we go and my oldest will be 4 1/2. I like your plan, I will have to tell my DH about that! We are the same way...we want the money we save by driving to spend on other things in Disney!! :) - chicky5801  14.3 #207 7:21AM
Btw where are you from? Are you in NY? - chicky5801  14.3 #207 7:22AM
Good info for me, too. Ours will be about the same distance. We are going to drive 4-5 hours on Friday, then a long day and then a shorter day on Sunday. - ally  509.0 #18 8:03AM
I really do recommend a short day, a long day, a short day. We figured why wait until Saturday morning to start when we can start Friday afternoon/evening. Even gets us there earlier than if we drive all day Saturday and Sunday. Chicky - we live in Iowa, flights from here are SO expensive! - DizneyGirl  1014.9 #8 11:00AM
Our flights are, too. - ally  509.0 #18 6:55PM
Good luck with your decision. I am not into road trips and greatly prefer to fly! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.6 #3 7:38AM
Likewise. - 5disneylovers  1204.1 #6 7:39AM
I will pay five times as much to fly. But I am a police officer so I am in a car ALL the time and I hate to drive when I don't have to.... - amajam  20.8 #171 9:41AM
We drive everywhere! With us needed 4 and sometimes 5 (if the oldest goes with us) plane tickets we just wouldn't be able to travel nearly as much as we do. Iowa has a tiny airport and flights are many times 4 to 8 times more than say NY or other bigger airports :( - DizneyGirl  1014.9 #8 11:01AM
I'm sure working at SeaTac Intl Airport and having a step-dad who is retired from Alaska Airlines has something to do with it! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.6 #3 11:40AM
Ahh, gotcha! - DizneyGirl  1014.9 #8 2:58PM
I'm a home care nurse and I drive all day. I refuse to drive when I'm off lol. Poor hubby. I help sometimes - 5disneylovers  1204.1 #6 4:26PM
I'm going to be driving out next may. It will take me 5 days. But I'm also moving out there. And could probably make it in close to three - cooldisgrl_CM  156.8 #2685 6:47PM
