Smile Fort Wilderness bound

We will be heading out tomorrow evening for a 10 day vacation at Fort Wilderness Disney. We will be taking Rt 78 west to 81 south to 83 south then eventually making it onto 95 south. Is there any construction issues along this route that could delay our travels. We prefer driving in the eveing and driving through the night. We have three people to drive the coach. This will be the longest drive to date with our Pursuit 32. We just installed Sumosprings and the safe-t-plus stabalizer.
Thanks for your feedback.

I recommend taking 81 south to 77 south to 26 east to 95 south. I go to Ft Wilderness every year and this is my preferred route. I'll be there 4/14 - 4/19.

Just came the 77 south to 26 east (south) yesterday into FL and there is a tremendous amount of construction on both of these right now. Especially from Charlotte south. Be prepared to wait no matter your route. Even so, I still like this route better than 81.

When you exit I95 to I4 get off of 4 at 46 and go over to 429. It is a toll but you miss all the construction in Orlando. 429 put you right at Disney. Or use 417. both are toll roads but worth it to miss the mess in Orlando.

A million times yes! I-4 SUCKS. That stretch is always littered with accidents.

If you use EZ pass be sure to bring cash if you go this way. They don't accept EZ pass in FL.

E-ZPass is accepted on certain parts of Florida's CFX toll roads since September 2018. Part of 429 and part of 417 accept E-ZPass. It is only accepted on parts of CFX highways. Here is a link to their site, it contains a map of the CFX roads:

Since you are traveling at night, you should be fine on the route you mentioned.

This is no surprise. Prior Disney trips, while riding the Disney buses and looking down into cars around the bus, there is an alarming number of people texting and messing with phones while they drive, I'd go as far as to say half.

We are taking great granddaughter April 8 for four nights. The campground site is not cheap, DW said she didnít ever want to hear me complain about high prices again. $177 a night. We wil probably just visit one park for one day, Magic Kingdom, she is three. Pools, golf cart and riding the ponies
