I'm not sure what you're asking of us in this forum. Some people may answer "yes" while most will answer "no."

Personally, if time and budget permit, I recommend stopping somewhere en route. We're seeing more and more reports of tired/sleepy drivers causing accidents--on a par with distracted/drunken drivers. Why risk it?

I did it every year when I was a college student/grad student with 2 drivers in the car.

I can't imagine doing it with little children since the one who isn't driving will have to be dealing with children and not able to sleep to be fresh for the next driving shift.

I am presuming you're headed to Orlando from Ada? Looks like over 18 hours of drive time. I would not do that with 2 small children in the car. We've done if from central Ohio to Titusville, Fla (15 hours) but just my husband and I. It's very tiring and the kids will be miserable. Driving part of it over night will help with the kids-- perhaps leave at dinner time. Take portable dvd players-- let the kids sleep all night. If you have 2 drivers, that helps, but you will be VERY tired when you arrive.
