My DH is participating in the marathon running weekend at Walt Disney World this January. We are debating as to the best way to get down to Florida and are considering a road trip, at least on the way down. We were considering giving ourselves three days to get down there, starting early in the morning and hitting the destination of the day in the early afternoon to give the kids a chance to play and explore. In January, our kids will be 5 and 1, so long days in the car will not be fun, but we like the fact that we would have our car available and the flexibility driving would give us should the weather decide to get nasty.
Has anyone turned the east coast trip to FL into a fun road trip for little ones? Any suggestions of places we could stop? Anyone want to tell us we are nuts and we should just fly and save the road trip until they are a bit older?
