Yep, snowing here since this morning but it's just starting to stick. We're counting the days here, so far 116! I want so bad to shoot down to Disney but the airfair is killer when you need at least 4 tickets, the wife thinks I'm nuts :rotfl2: We will all be down there sporting our World Series gear!

Sure, this can be the new PA thread!!! :thumbsup2

We're all pretty close so far! I'm about 5 or 10 min from PHL airport!

Such a large PA crowd here. I see, Reading, Boyertown, etc... we are from Exeter. We were in WDW 1/23-1/30 and we had about 3 80 degree days in a row there... as the rest were in the mid 70's.

I was on the phone with my neighbor when I was in WDW telling him where my snowblower was for the storm that hit while we were gone and my inside temp gauge said 76. It was so neat.

We want to go back soon!

It's nice to see so many NEPA folks. Just curious: Where do you all fly out of?

I find Avoca just too expensive, so usually I trek to PHL.

NateNLogansDad
02-16-2009, 10:26 AM
PHL is having pretty good deals lately. Using Southwest and got $59 each way and that includes up to 2 checked bags. I've seen Allentown has Aligeant Air that will fly you for $39 each way but you will be paying for every bag you check.

We have flown out of Newark and Allentown. Nearest to us is Avoca, but I will not do a layover. Philadelphia is also an option. I usually look for where is cheapest with direct flights.

Just thought I'd check in to the new PA thread. I'm from Hatboro (near Willow Grove) about 1 hour north of Philly! I don't presenty have a WDW trip planned for this year although my oldest son will be spending his Disneymoon there in October! It's killing me but I don't have anything planned until my WB TA trip on the Magic in SEP2010!!!


I grew up in Forty Fort!! :)

BTW, to the OP...my daughter goes to school in Glenside (Arcadia).

We just got back from WDW. Crowds weren't too bad at all. Weather wasn't the greatest, but that's ok, we weren't there to swim and suntan!

Both my sister and her husband graduated from Arcadia (although it was Beaver College at the time!).

Hello all,

As I read through all of the postings it seems alot of people are on the eastern side of the state. I was born and raised in Somerset Co. Graduated from Slippery Rock Univ. where I met DH. We lived in Chester Co. for a little while after we were maried. We now live in NC Co. DE. We ended up in DE as DH was able to find work here after our oldest was born, almost 12 yrs ago now. I miss home a lot!:( It is very different here than the rural area I came from and it is getting busier all the time.

My mother and brother's family are in WDW right now. Latest report was that it is extremely busy everywhere. Yesterday, wait times of over an hour were very common.

We are going next month. Hopefully, crowds will lighten a little until then. This is a surprise trip for the kiddos. We are trying very hard to keep it a secret. We were able to pull this off once before. The kids didn't know where we were going until we pulled into the resort. Dad took a wrong turn going to Aunt J's house and we ended up at WDW. Way to go Dad! :thumbsup2

We are going about it a bit differently this time as DS is an amateur detective/blood hound. DH has secretly put in place an "alternate" set of travel plans for DS to study that include visiting "odd" tourist attractions (Think National Lampoon's vacation movies) to throw DS off the Disney track. We shall see how successful we are.

Glad to see this PA thread. Hope it continues!
