Take I 75 south to the Florida turnpike. Definitely more that 12 hours! More like 15-20 depending on where you start.

A truck driver that made it in 12 hours was going at least 90 mph the whole way!

Using Microsoft's Streets & Trips, from Springfield, OH to Orlando, FL is 980 miles and would take 15 hours with a 15 minute stop every 4 hours. The route is essentially I-75 all the way until you get to Wildwood, FL when it changes to the Turnpike.

I'll see what route goes through Virginia.

Using the same criteria, any route through VA and the Carolinas is longer (about 1050 miles) and at least 17 hours.

If you do that trip in 12 hours, let us know how many speeding tickets you got. LOL.

jsg96, from my corner of PA it's about 1,028 miles. 16 hour drive without stopping. It took my friends 18 hours with 5 stops. The bulk of the drive is on 95 thru NC, SC, GA & FL about 660 miles.

Try the Mapquest site again and put in your address and as a destination put in walt disney world resort, 7100 municipal drive, orlando, fl.

980 miles in 12 hours is doable, it's only 82 MPH. If you leave at 9 PM at night and drive all night on a mostly empty roadway you could do it. Your'll never do it in the daytime when the roads have more cars on them
