Orlando rush hour tomorrow

Hi...a bit worried about traffic. Plane arrives 5:55 pm and have rental ready to head to Daytona for the night. We leave Seattle early tomorrow and would like to take the fastest route. Given the time of day is it smarter to just hit I-4 or take the toll road 417 and connect back on 4 north of Orlando? Thanks for advice

Just to give yourself every advantage, I'd take 417 to I-4 and then all the way to Daytona.

I'd choose 417 as well which is actually less mileage than 528 to I-4 together with higher speed limits and typically low traffic.

Just for informational purposes though, I think one would find the majority of traffic on I-4 moving westbound from Downtown not eastbound toward it in the evenings. I can't really speak toward I-4 north of Downtown Orlando at that time of day.

Realistically with a 6pm arrival, you won't be on the road until 7pm after you deplane, ride the train, walk to baggage claim, and then across to the renal cars. By that time the evening rush will be minimal. There is also construction on I4 that will slow you as well. You should be able to be in Daytona by 9pm if all goes well.
