When the Schneides told us they were going to be in Orlando in Oct., we decided it would be fun to drive up and spend some time with them. So we arranged to see them the last 2 days of their trip and I would go to Epcot with them one day, the other day they would hang out at our resort and swim and relax.
It's about a 3 hour drive to Orlando from our South Florida home. We couldn't check in until late afternoon, so didn't bother leaving too early. It was a pretty ride. Even the Mt. Trashmore with the flocks of buzzards flying around them were interesting.
We had lots of blue skies and puffy white clouds the whole way.
