Road Trip WI - Orlando +1 Week Vacation

Jump to last reply

We are driving from Eau Claire, WI to Orlando FL at the end of April with our two boys (4 and 7) and my mom and dad. We are taking a car and a van. We will take I -94 to 65 to 75S. via Chicago, Indianapolis, Atlanta. I have many fond memories of making this trip however I only had a sister! We'd like to find a few stops along the way that would interest the boys - one we have in mind is Ruby Falls in TN. We will stay overnight most likely in TN. One other thing our boys are savvy travelers used to long hauls, they've flown internationally since they were only a few months old and have driven cross country - they start getting anxious around 5 hrs in the car).

In Orlando we have a timeshare so lodging is not an issue. We are doing this on a relatively low budget so no blow out 5 day Disney park-hopper passes! We want the kids to have a great time, we want to (try to)relax and also I would love a suggestion for a night out for my husband and I (our anniversary). What are some fun activities in or around Orlando that won't break the bank. Also we are going to do Disney or Universal Islands of Adventure one day, haven't picked which.

Any tips on getting discount park tickets or discount tickets to other attractions? Thanks for the advice!
