  1. Default Driving from NY to Disney, FL in winter

    We're taking our first big road trip in Feb 2012 to DisneyWorld. Would love advice on how to plan hotel stops. Think we can drive 5 - 6 hours the day. What's the easiest way to figure out where we would be in this length of time so we can book a hotel? Thank you!

    Default RTA Custom Maps Planning Circles

    By using the RTA Custom Maps planning circles, you can see all of the cities in a given range. If you're going to drive 5-6 hours per day, your likely maximum range on any given day will be 320 miles.

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum. (Please do not post new threads -- On the Same Trip -- in other sections on the Forum.)

    To use the circles go to the RTA Map Center page:

    1. Click on Draw Circles (under the map) and set radius to 300 miles

    2. Click on your starting place for any given day -- NYC

    3. Scroll out so you can see the edge of the circle -- your first day would be about Virginia Beach.

    4. Do it again for Virginia Beach and etc. Depending upon your route -- the next such stop might be in Florence. The map will retain the circles as you move south.

    5. We have a slowly developing database of attractions along many routes in the country. These are not developed from any external site -- they are all personally checked and written by RTA writers. Here's a link to some of those attractions found on such a route.

    You can add map circles to such maps to help with your planning.

    As far as which motels to book -- we have a motel booking service.

    Enjoy the planning.
