    Our friends kids are flying into Sanford for their WDW holiday. We have never flown into Sanford before so I am not much help :lol:

    They are staying at All Star Sports, is it difficult to find from Sanford.

    It is their first time to WDW and also their first time driving on the wrong side of the road :wink:

    I'd be interested to hear this, as I've never flown into Sanford either.

    Rob prefers it to MCO, I think.

    Because the I4 construction has started, direct them to the 417 route (instead of I4). That will take them well away from the construction. it's not hard, but of course it is further. :yes: Do they have a gps that will work here? Perhaps, Google can help them get a visual? It's about an hour's drive. I'd suggest 417 to 528 to I4. That will drop them well below (well west) the construction. :yes:

    Thanks Tink, I might see if I can get Chris to make a map for them.

    Is it a fairly easy drive Robert, it's the first time driving over there.

    Can you remember how many tolls there are? I'll give them some change to make it easier for them.

    Just don't forget that the 417, if they use it, is a toll road. If they take it all the way to exit 3, I believe, that will bring them in right at the All Stars practically.

    Thanks Robert and John, I have lots of change so I will take some up to them this weekend so that they can take it with them for the tolls.

    Remember too that the tolls cost more when you use cash. Be sure to tell them to have enough coin with them. There are booths that only accept the exact coins. :yes:
