Just how long is Spring Break in Seattle, here it is 10 days to 2 weeks. I would never consider driving that distance, round trip in that amount of time.

Thanks. Used to traffic (originally from Los Angeles)

This trip will likely be when the kids break from school in spring.


Disney is so overloaded on "kids days off" it is horrible. Xmas and spring break are the worst.
best time might be mid feb or late nov. of course the miserable days mid simmer are in that group also.

The drive was what I was looking forward to the most.


Many people don't understand that concept either. I agree with you. It not just the destination, but seeing all the countryside getting there. Granted, the sagebrush and scrub in some of the areas of West is not that attractive, but that is just part of the country we live in

Don't come to FL June, July, or August. Hot, humid, bugs.

Spring break, the weather is nice, but places like Disney get PACKED. We have the Disney silver pass, and that's part of the block-out dates, due to the number of visitors they get.

IMHO, late Fall is the best time to visit. Temperature/humidity are better, less bugs, less crowds.

If you are thinking about staying at Fort Wilderness, make sure you have reservations as many months in advance as possible. Fills up quickly.

Either end of October or beginning of April. You'll miss the snowbirds and the temps are usually nice that time of year.
