Orlando traffic

I will be traveling through Orlando to Ocala coming up from the south on the Turnpike. Does anyone know the worst rush hour times to avoid on a Friday afternoon/evening?

Tif you stay on Turnpike, won't r affected too much by rush hour. But probably worst in direction you are heading from about 3-6. Turnpike not too heavily used by commuter traffic.

It might get a little busy near Clermont around 5;00 or 6:00, but there are multiple lanes and a 70mph speed limit all the way to Winter Garden. After that, the traffic shouldn't be bad unless there is a wreck.

The Turnpike is a piece of cake, I-4 is the one that sucks.

The tolls roads tend not to get as busy as the others so you should be fine, as surffishLA says, it's the I4 that is awful
