Has anyone ever used Amtraks Auto Train?

It's a train that goes from the DC area to the Orlando Area, and it can also carry your car. We are planning a vacation for next summer and this would save us a ton of money on airfare and a car rental.

  • Last Oct i took it from Deland fla to Virginia..it was one of the best road trips ever!!!! For us it was a 16 hour ride..(drove another 6-7 to get to destination N.Y) the wait is very little to load cars and to unload..food is great and blankets are comfy ..you can walk all over the train..it was very very cheap..

  • My in-laws go to FL every year from up north and they love it. I've never been on it myself.

  • http://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak/autotrain  As far as I am aware, it is only this route, but I have not yet done much research.
