Texas to Disney FL

We are headed to Disney World from Texas (DFW) in early October. There will be a total of 4 TT in caravan (3 of which are around 40 feet.)

Anyone have any knowledge of places to stop for thE night, we were hopping to get to Pendecola the first day and have been considering staying in a parking lot but would prefer to have electric hook ups

I have always just stopped at a small park just west of Mobile it is right off I10 and only about $20. Easy to pull off and pull through sites. I-10 Kampground

That is almost a 700 mile trip, which is one long day. I have made the trip to Pensacola several times, and am planning on going in mid august. My suggestion would be to stop midway at Vicksburg Ameristar RV park.

Pensacola is like 650 miles and a 12-14 hour trip which pulling trailers in caravan is a real big goal. We usually set our limit at 400ish and realistically 300.

You have to drop down to I-10, we have driven both Shreveport to Lafayette and Jackson to Mobile and both are fine.

Good Luck

Agree with what others are saying. We live in Orlando and have family in Fort Worth, where we grew up. To Pensacola is a very long day! On top of that, it's going to be another very long day on to Disney, probably about 10 hours with the TT if you're lucky.

I would say look for some place to stay around Lafayette or New Orleans, then around Lake City, FL or just push on through to Disney. One longer day would be better than two long days. When you do head south on I75, be sure to get on the Florida Turnpike when they split. Costs a little bit but it is money well spent, believe me! Look for us - we'll be starting our long trip the opposite direction about that same time!

We often go from south Texas over to fort Myers area, and find that it is a good 2 1/2 days to make the trip. Fully agree with the above plan. Enjoy your trip! Disney is a great destination!
