Excellent food and reasonably priced (unlike Hershey )
Great wooden rollorcoasters and the best bumpercars anywhere.

central PA here...

...Lewisburg, to be exact. Planning our first trip to WDW in January, and these boards have already been a tremendous help. I had originally booked us at POFQ, but just switched to AKL on Thursday, thanks to the RO discount. I wouldn't have had the first clue how to navigate that transaction were it not for the DIS boards!

On the driving vs. flying thing--I think I'm weird, because I actually WANTED to drive the 18-ish hours that it would take for us to get there by car. I love road trips. Unfortunately, I am married to someone who does not love them, so we are flying out of Baltimore instead.

I am so excited about this trip, and so is our six year old son. DH, not so much, but he's slowly warming to it!

We drove for the first 4/5 family trips from about an hour south of Lake Erie (still my location) when I was a kid. We'd take two days and stay a night around Statesville, North(?) Carolina, but my grandparents would drive straight through by leaving very early, packing food and using drive-thru windows, and switching drivers each had a chance to sleep and they'd arrive in Orlando within a day. I never asked how fast they drove.... We'll be flying for our trip at the end of February.

Live in Honesdale Pa. in the heart of the poconos. We will be doing a Disney cruise Feb. 9-16 then spending the 16-28 @ Disney,s OKW. Great way to avoid a cold or snowy time in the northeast.

We are from Northern Lancaster Really close to the the TP exit (Leb/Lanc). I prefer driving but the DH likes flying...we are also going in June right when school lets out (for me at least, I am a teacher in Southern Lanc.) but are headed on our first cruise and then a week at the beach! Have fun on your long vacation, I am still trying to talk the DH into going a few days early to catch a day or 2 at Disney

We live in Lancaster County (Jersey girl at heart)and always drive. If we start after I get home from work, we drive as far as we can get without it being a ridiculous hour(usually VA). If we leave early in the morning, we drive to GA or so. We sometimes stop for a day in St. Augustine and then drive the 2 hours to WDW in the morning. We really like the drive, stop where we want to and feel it's part of the vacation.
