It looks like we won't be able to afford flying for our Disney trip this November, so we're driving. Point of origination: Madison, Wisconsin. Drive time is 22 hours.

We have a Chrysler T&C with 2 DVD players and RCA input for another device (like our Xbox). We've basically got an entertainment center on wheels. We don't have to worry about keeping the kids busy, I think. We have 3 drivers, and 6 people total. I think we're set for 1, perhaps 2, days of travel.
We'd be leaving for the trip on the 20th of November. Our only limitation here is making our dinner reservations on the 21st. Check-in at the Disney resorts is 24/7, but the room isn't typically available until, at the earliest, Noon on the day you check in. Our last day in the parks is the 1st of December, with no room reservation for that evening. Our intent is to leave on the 1st, stay overnight somewhere on the road, and then get home by the 2nd.
Questions: Is the corridor of southern Illinois to Nashville, down I75 through Georgia (and around Atlanta) rife with any issues for which Google Maps will not prepare us? Are there hotels along that corridor to which we should pay particular attention, or any that we should avoid?
