What is the best part / loop to stay in (quieter off the bus route maybe)?
Are you able to select your site or is it arbitrarily assigned to you?
Any input would be appreciated.
You can take 95 south in FL to the Beachline Tollway (Hwy 528). It will take you right past the Orlando airport to I-4 for a couple of miles before the exit. I think there is a back way into Ft. Wilderness from there. Give that route a look. Also, when you are almost to Jacksonville, be sure to take I-295 around the city. It's a few miles longer, but you won't get caught in the slowdowns through downtown.
