If I'm staying on captiva island what's the true driving time to Tampa or Orlando or fort lauderdale?

Ive seen the distance and estimated times just want tokens from people who have done it

It takes me 3.5 hours to get to Ft Myers Beach. I am about a half hour past Disney, and Captiva is about another 1/2 hour further. So, about 3.5 hours to the Disney area would be close barring any issues.

I also use very little of I-75, and very little of I-4. I like the back way.
