Be sure to give your car a tune-up before you leave! Pay particular attention to your air conditioning if you're going during the warmer months, you're going to need it!
Unless you're within just a few hours of Walt Disney World, be sure to compare the cost of flying vs. driving. It may be cheaper!
If you were hoping to rent a refrigerator for your motel room along the way, consider an electric cooler instead. They can plug into your car's cigarette lighter, and then plug into a standard wall outlet (with an adapter) in your hotel room. The ones we've seen cost about $100, which is a good investment if you're planning to use it again.
Play games while en route! "52 Fun Things To Do in a Car" is a good book for kids that keeps them entertained while you're on the road.
