It usually takes between 12 and 15 hours to travel from Memphis to Orlando by car, so it’s a good idea to do the trip over two days. Here’s the most direct route between the two cities:
  • Take I-22 to Birmingham, Alabama, and then take I-65 to Montgomery
  • Get on I-85 N and drive until you hit exit 42 to get on US-80 E
  • Take US-80 E to US-280 E
  • Continue on US-280 E until you hit I-75 S
  • Take I-75 S to the Florida Turnpike
  • Take the Florida Turnpike to Orlando
Before you head for the happiest place on earth, make sure you’re prepared for the long drive with healthy snacks, a good navigation app, and other road trip essentials—including a car insurance policy with roadside assistance.
