Avoiding tolls going to Disney

Does anyone have any tips for avoiding Florida tolls going in to Disney? We're considering camping at Fort Wilderness but my neighbor spooked me with tales of $18 tolls!

BTW, we're coming from Atlanta.

Sounds kinna cheap when compared to toll fees posted here by others that are in the 20-30 dollar range.

I75 to I4 and east to Orlando.

I75...I10 east @ Lake City to I95...then South to I4 into Orlando...but with these directions, may spend more $ taking this route vs paying the $20 tolls!

You will need to take I75 and get off on the Wildwood exit just before the turnpike exit. Then take State Road 44 and US 27 to Orlando. That avoids the tolls on the turnpike but will take longer to get there.

Why take I10 to I95 and then backtrack 100 miles west on I4? I75 south to Hwy 98 to I4 to Orlando.

how much extra fuel/time to save 18 bucks? agree with other posters about paying disney prices/rv park prices and cheaping out on the tolls. you do realize its 18 bucks because your pulling a trailer, right?

Yeah I know it is more because of the extra axles, but to me, $40 isn't chump change even for Disney. If it costs that much in gas to get around the tolls, then of course I'd just pay the toll. But that was the purpose of my question - to see how much trouble it is.

Sheesh, didn't realize I'd get much flak for trying to save a buck...

Oh and thank you to all who answered so quickly! I'll have a look at the routes on Google maps.
