I've heard of some great deals flying out of Buffalo instead of Toronto to Orlando. With us, myself, DW, DS6 and DD2 that would run us at least $2000 flying with Air Canada out of YYZ.

Why wouldn't we drive down to Buffalo and take a flight from there?

Great question. I am in the same boat. I think that there are only pro no cons on this.

That was the question I used to ask myself before flying out of Buffalo for the first time in May. And the answer is - besides convenience and familiarity , no reason. Buffalo is way cheaper, less crowded, very easy to get around, less hassles because you don't have to go through customs at the airport, closer parking and the local airport hotels are great.

I will never fly to a U.S. destination out of Pearson again.

we have found 2 cons.

1. Hard to find a direct flight.

2. The direct flights are at inconvient times.

Can we live with those heck yes! :Pinkbounc

Have you flown with SW before? They have a great direct flight every morning. Leave about 7:30am and you are in Orlando before 10. Awesome times.

Yes we flew SW a few years back. As there are 6 of us and the fact it would mean kenneling our dog an extra night we don't want to spend the night in Bufallo.

We had found the perfect flight on Air Tran leaving at 3 pm ish landing at 5 ish. We booked it right away. Air Tran for some reason changed the flight times and no we don't leave Buffalo till after 5 landing at Mco 8;30 ish. Oh well at least we are going to Disney and getting the dinning plan for free. :cool1:

A.

We just flew down via SW from Buffalo in June and it was great. It was much cheaper and very convenient. However, I can see a couple of situations where it might not be so great.

1. Specific Travel Window

Getting $49-59 per way SW fares are great if the alternative is $250-$300 each way via AC. However, if you're starting to plan your travel outside of the SW booking period (~3 months), you will not know how much you are going to pay with SW until their booking windows open. I'm not sure I'd bother going to Buffalo to be pay $160-$180 each way and, by then seats on AC, Westjet, etc. may be sold out or prices have gone up from the dates when the seats were first available on the Toronto-based airlines. I don't know enough about SW pricing patterns over the past few years to convey how much of a risk this might be but I do know that you cannot count on getting your airfare at $49 each way.

2. Snow

We've thought about using SW for March break travel but I've been concerned about having to drive down from the GTA to Buffalo in bad weather. I have visions of trying to get there in a driving snowstorm. (I'm a "glass half-empty" kind of guy). To me, this could be stressful way to start a vacation but I'm sure there are others that have flown out of Buffalo during various times in the winter and had nothing but clear driving down to Buffalo each time.

To me, there's no reason. When we went in April we went from Buffalo. The parking is cheaper, the flights are way, way cheaper and it's nice to fly out of a smaller airport, IMO. The only drawback I could find was that there were almost no, if none at all, direct flights from Buffalo. I would only fly out of Buffalo for the difference in price.

We went last March and it was a breeze (sure there is a possibility of snow....but the same snow falls on YYZ albeit not quite as heavy.Buffalo has a reputation for clearing snow unbelievably fast). Give yourself lots of time by going down the night before and staying at one of many Parksleepfly hotels.

Not sure why there are so many complaints of non-direct flights...I have always found SW to have direct flights, usually at least twice a day, first thing in the am and then later in the afternoon. I've never looked at any other airlines, although my dh and sister flew Jetblue to NYC and liked it. Not direct to Orlando though.

I believe SW is the only airline with daily direct flights. Air Tran only offers 2 a week both on Sat.

If I'm wrong I would love to know :confused3

Our reasoning is because with a family of 5 it is much much cheaper to drive than to fly from TO or Buffalo or even DTW makes no sence to us to spend over 500 US or more out of the US when we can drive for less than 300.00 and with a lease vehicle who cares about maintenance and wear and tear as we turn it in when the warranty is up.

We went in December 12/03 to WDW and flew out of Buffalo.
Since I was a bit worried about the weather in December we left for Buffalo on Friday after lunch ... took about 2hrs to get to Buffalo from Downtown TO checked into the Holiday Inn Express (GREAT !! ) went for lunch at Olive Garden, then hit Walden Galeria Mall... Back to the hotel for an early bed time... our flight was at 6:40 AM on Air Tran... Left for the Airport at 5am... was sitting at the Gate at 5:30AM !! ... 45min Stop over in Atlanta (with ds 2 1/2 & DD 5 1/2 ) NO PROBLEM !! Got to Orlando at ??? can't remember but at 1pm we were at the WL by the pool having lunch !! the Cost of Hotel & Flight $1000.00 CDN ... I just could not justify flying out of Toronto for $1000.00 more... just did not make any sense.
I hope next time we go (Nov 2007) AirTran will have Airline check in at the hotel... that would be icing on the cake !! :cheer2:

1. Hard to find a direct flight.

2. The direct flights are at inconvient times.

Southwest does indeed have direct flights and they usually have 2 departure times available on the direct itinerary.

1) Depart Buffalo 7:20am arrive Orlando 10:00am
2) Depart Buffalo 6:30pm arrive Orlando 9:00pm

A lot of people, book a day earlier at Disney, drive down to Buffalo to get on the 6:30PM flight. Granted you arrive late, but you are in WDW for your real first day there!

Even with the extra night stay at Disney, it STILL works out cheaper to fly out of Buffalo. :thumbsup2

I wish that our vehicle had as good gas milage as yours! And our vehicle is really good on gas! :confused3 We drove to Disney & back in Feb and gas alone was $450, and then there was of course food and accomadations for the trip there and back And we are also a family of 5.

Heres a tip if you want to take the early southwest flight(we are in september) Drive down the day before(so you are not rushed) and do a park and fly at one of the hotels nearby. We reserved a room at the ramada for $69 which includes the overnight accomadations, small breakfast, shuttle to the airport and parking for the week(not bad considering airport parking would be close to $50 for the week anyways). Like this you are not rushed(in case the border is slow) and you can get that early non-stop flight.

Hi zenkatt

We've done that at YYZ the last 2 times we went to WDW. We stayed at the Shearaton in YYZ. Super convenient especially with a 6 and 2 year old. If we do fly out of Buffalo I'd stay at the Holiday Inn Express or simular. I'm not sure what the best hotel is at or around the Buffalo Airport.

Just make sure they offer a park and fly(not all of them do make sure they specify it in your room package) I know there are some better quality hotels that offer a similar package(in the $99 to $119 range) but were the kind of people that just want a bed to drop into and would rather use the extra $30 or $40 to see gatorland or wonderworks etc. But that being said if you have a family and want a cleaner place avoid the ramada!!!

For those of you who've flown out of Buffalo, how do you plan your trips? I guess that's one con of not using Air Canada/WestJet/YYZ is that I could book my flights way in advance. If I do Buffalo with say Southwest Air then I can only book 3 months in advance and that's asuming they are offering low fares to MCO.

Could someone please offer your advice for planning your trip assuming flying out of Buffalo?

Thanks

it's not Air Transat out of Toronto, but Airtran out of Buffalo... try Airtran.com
You are right Air Transat reputation is terrible.
But Airtran the only complain is that they are constantly changing the schedule, other than that there is no complain. :thumbsup2

Last year I made all my own arrangements ie: air /hotel/ car. I spent many hours online doing my research. The biggest part being for air. I started in January for a July trip. I found all the airlines that fly out of BUF and I started watching the prices. Southwest and Airtran's prices are the best. I kept track of the prices for about a month. I booked with Airtran and got 4 tickets for $747 taxes in(travel july 9-19). Ultimately, I chicken'd out and couldn't wait for SW to open up my dates. I was really pleased with the price I got considering that the best I could do from Toronto or Hamilton was $1700. About 7 weeks after I booked, SW had a sale and I could have saved another $100 and had the direct non-stop flight but I was still ahead of the game. Overall, the fares from BUF are much lower than those from AC or WJ. Even if you don't get the sale fares.

For me the lesson learned was do your homework and when you see a good price book it. In fact, I learned so much about booking travel related products that my friends and co-workers now seek my advice on their trips. Some even ask me to do the leg work for them which I quite enjoy.

SW ~ Best bet is to book as soon as your dates become available. Keep watching as the rate may go down and you can receive a credit. Best to book one way for each leg that way if a DING becomes available you will only have to change that just in case the return isn't available for DING.

It's so easy to get to the Buffalo Airport and then you only have to go thru customs at the border.

Last year, I booked our flights two weeks prior for a spur of the moment MNSSHP trip! $230.00 CDN for two! Return!

None of the Airlines here in Toronto can even come close!

Make sure you sign up for DING!

We will never fly out of Pearson again for destinations we can get to via Southwest. Southwest out of Buffalo is the way to go. We usually drive to Buffalo the night before; stay at a airport hotel that has park n fly and free shuttle to the airport. The night accommodation and being able to park your car for a week at the Buffalo hotel is about the same price as to park n fly at Pearson.

The only small Cons with Southwest is having to go online to their website 24 hours prior to departure to print off the boarding passes and having to queue to board. Going down typically is not an issue and we have always got "A" boarding passes. Coming back we usually have a friend back home do our online check-in and secure our "A" boarding passes. Then we go to the front desk of our resort and they have been more than happy to print our boarding passes for us.

Why do you have a friend at home do your online check-in? Can they not do this at the Disney hotels aswell? :confused3 I was hoping they could.

They do but if you want to get an A pass sometimes you have to check in right at the 24 hour mark and you may be in the parks at this point, so it is easier to have someone at home do it for you.

Personally, I don't even think this is an issue.
A) you don't have to do online check in to be in the A group. If you arrive at the airport about 1.5 hours(or more) before your flight you will more than likely be in the A group. We are accustomed to being at the airport even earlier than this in Canada so I do the same in the US. Plus it's not worth possibly missing the flight because you didn't show up at the airport until an hour before your flight(as the US carriers say is acceptable).
B)Even in Canada you have to wait until they board your row and then line up anyway.

On Southwest you DO NOT get an assigned seat. You board the plane based on what group you are in, A-B-C, and take whatever seat you want. The groups are assigned based on what time you have checked in. Also, part of each group if held for online check in and part is airport check in.

Some of the other carriers do pre-assigned seating but it is based on what type of ticket you have purchased, refundable-non refundable, etc.

It seems that the A,B,C seating method is not very effective on Orlando flights since 50% of the travellers have young kids who pre board before everyone else (even if you kids are older then 5 !..........along with your granny,uncle and 2nd cousin) :goodvibes

Ok, so is there a chance that you wouldn't get a seat on the flight? I'm envisioning driving to Buffalo with my gang (4 of us) getting to the airport and at the boarding gate someone saying "Sorry sir all the seats are taken" or "Sorry Sir there are only 3 seats left." :scared1: How can they even ensure we'd all sit together?

When you check-in for your flight, SW will issue you a boarding pass in either category "A", "B" or "C". They start by issuing "A"s and when a certain number have been issued, the begin issuing "B"s, etc. When the planes begin boarding, they start with preboarding handicapped people and families with small children, then "A"s, the "B"s and, finally, "C"s. (If you do a search on the Transportation Board, you can find threads that have information on how many SW issues in each category.) When you get on the plane, you just pick whatever seats are available when you get on. So, the later you get on the plane, the less chance you have of getting all your seats together. So, the earlier you get to the airport to check-in, the better chance you have of getting an "A" boarding pass. If you have small children, you don't even need an "A". Also, SW allows passengers to check-in online as early as 24 hours before the flight; that is the easiest way to secure an "A" boarding pass but I think they reserve some of the "A" and "B" allocation for people who check-in in person.

If you print off your boarding passes 24 hours before the flight and get A passes ,you'll be fine (remember ,even if you can't print them off,you can pick them up at the airport).
If ,on the other hand,you don't have your passes and there is the possibility of an overbooked flight ,they will perhaps ask for volunteers to give up their seat.

I did a quick glance at your note ... you said about 2000 from Pearson?

I JUST now in the last 5 minutes booked four of us (sitting down?) $822.8 More than worth driving cross the border, staying in a reasonable park-fly hotel you can often find 1 for anywhere from 59 (129 if you wanna be fancy :rotfl2: ) They will shuttle you to airport in am and you can take 7 am flight and be in the Mouse's House by 10.

To put it mildly......."It's A Cattle Call"!

And no, if you book AC Tango Fare, you are not guaranteed a seat! Therefore, you are better to pay the $30.00 extra and go for Tango Plus, which that extra $30.00 is your seat assignment!

For the Extra in savings, well worth it! This October's trip would have been at least $1400.00 for just two on AC!

So far with SW, I've only paid the equivalient of taxes! Plus there is the hopes of getting this lowered with future DINGS!

For Our December trip, which I'm waiting for SW to open, I've already booked a night's stay at Millineum with Parking Included for $99.00. I can't do that in Canada!

1.5 hours at the airport will not necessarily get you a "A" pass either. When we flew home from LA in March we got A passes at the 24hour mark, my BIL who was with us checked in a few hours later and got a B.

Another good way to do it is if you have a cell phone with a web browser. You can check in over the phone and print the pass at the airport.

Since we have never flown out of Buffalo before - we will in Oct. --

Can someone please tell me what parking rates are like? Is it cheaper to park at Buffalo airport or at a local airport hotel and use a shuttle to get us to airport? What hotels in Buffalo do you recommend which are not far from airport or some shopping? Nothing too expensive but convenient please.

Any recommendations? We are travelling with 2 seniors and 2 children.

Thanks so much.

The parking rates are quite reasonable at the airport .You can book them online here.
http://www.buffaloairport.com/airport_info/parking_availability.phtml
or
You can try this website for a choice of Park-Sleep-Fly hotels.
http://www.parksleepfly.com/

We've used this website twice and stayed at The Millenium Hotel (15 min shuttle ride).
Its a good rate ($99 I think) for one night ,plus free parking up to 2 weeks and free shuttle to and from airport. It is also only a 5 minute walk to the Walden Galleria Mall.

That sounds increadible from Pearson. How many people did this $822.8 include and what carrier/flight did you purchase? Is this the full price including taxes and everything?

That is not from Pearson. Title by OP says that it is from Buffalo and the body of message explains why it is still a good deal even with crossing border, etc.

We are in for late August at $160.00 CDN per person from Buffalo.

Does not matter to me if I am beside my wife or not for the next 2.5 hours if I have an extra $700 in my pocket between the two of us when we get off the plane in Orlando.

You will not get the Ding or Internet Special fares over the phone,So its better (and easier) to book it through the SWA website.
