It is very feasible. One of the transportation boats has direct service to the MK. One boat goes directly to the MK and the other I think goes to Wilderness Lodge and then on to the Contemporary Resort, then back to the campground.

The transportation for on site guests is pretty amazing... I know a friend/coworker is a regular at FW and I know they will go to the trailer for a rest or a meal with a 5 year old boy in tow no less!

At least one of us returns midday to let the dogs out and feed them.

It can be hectic but it can be slower. FW is what you make of it. I know people who don't even bother to leave the campground....of course with kids.. that's not us

I am working on an upcoming trip to FW and am looking for some help/experience with part of the route.

I will be travelling east on I10 and then heading south on I75 then on 91 (tollroad).

From there various routing software comes up with different routes. There seems to be three major options.

Option 1: From 91 exit onto 429 S (toll road) and then exit onto County Rd 535, the Winter Garden Vineland Road and then onto Vista drive into DW.

Option 2: From 91 exit onto 429 S (toll road) and then exit onto Western Way into DS.

Option 3: From 91 exit onto I4 south and then Epcot Center Drive into DW.

I am towing a 30' so I am more concerned about trailer friendly and easy instead of the shortest route.

Thanks in advance.

We have a Rand McNally RVTrip Maker GPS that allows us to put in all our dimensions and LP amount then it routes us to where we can go. Hopefully someone will come along that can help you.

How do you like your RV Tripmaker GPS? It has mixed reviews over on Amazon.

It allows you to use it in both RV and Car modes. In RV mode, you give it your dimensions and you can tell it not to use toll roads, no uturns, routes around tunnels and roads that you can't drive on with LP. It comes with a stylus but you can just push on the screen too. It has alot of POIs and is a bit better than the others about them. You don't have to enter the state first. You just type in the city/town name and it gives you a list of the town with the states like:

Manhattan, NY
Manhattan, KS

Shawn's only complaint is that the lane assist isn't as good as TomToms.

It's not perfect but we found it less frustrating to use with the TT than TomTom.
