    This is our first trip to WDW. We are so excited!! We are driving from Arlington, TX. Where would you suggest would be the best place to stop overnight? Do suggest more than one stop? We have an 8 and 4 year old. Thanks so much Suzana

    Hi Suzeana!

    Driving to Walt Disney World can be such an adventure!  While I've not made the drive with my own children, I do remember our trips as a child, and they were always made by car.  We generally stopped in Mobile, Alabama for the night, and then woke early to head out for Florida in the morning.

    Safe travels and have a magical vacation!
