Woohoo :woohoo: Are you guys all waiting for the park hours for planning?

I am trying to set an itinerary up re planning ADR's (Free Dining :banana: )

Unfortunately, Disney releases the calendars on the same day as ADR's can be booked :confused3

Ted....what a nice long vacation :thumbsup2

DisneyRookie2007 our trips overlap at Pop, might see you there ;)

grantclaire...Not going for free dining? (saves us a LOT)

Have you guys all booked your air yet?

We decided to jump in and book (SWA down and JetBlue back)

Ted in Halifax
08-29-2011, 11:56 AM
Air Booked .... March 10th for 4 people $392 total

Return March 22nd for 4 people $512 Total

Both flights travel between Manchester and MCO.

Excellent prices :thumbsup2

Ours: $128 each on SWA Buf-MCO on Mar 7

Return on JetBlue on Mar 16 was $179 each :scared1: (hoping it goes down and we get a credit for another trip ;) )

Airfare is definitely up over last year. Usually I can get to Orlando and back from Manchester or Portland Maine for under $200. This year I would expect $270 per person, unless I went to Boston (which is not my preference).

I was very lucky to get the fares I did ... I spent hours and hours hunting for these.

No FD for us, I do not think it is offered the days we are there? Our school break starts on Mar 12. Would like to stay onsite if a PIN comes our way if not we will stay at one of the Vistana resorts. Flying out of Pearson( I know expensive!) on WJ booked very early and are paying the same amount as 2011. Also used some TD Travel points to help with the costs. I am planning for 2 trips at the same time! Dec /11 as well. In March want to see the Leafs play in Tampa. Ted you are going to love the Dream! We did the cruise this past March!

Looks like Mar 7-19. Flights are 298 direct out of Syracuse. Won't go near the parks the week of Mar 10th based on last years crazy crowds. Hoping to hit a few waterparks and maybe WWoHP.

Let's hope for the same weather as March Break 2011! It was spectacular!

Looks like March 10 to March 23rd for us.. Haven't booked airfare yet, hoping it comes down. It may change our days by a day or two but not a big deal. 5th year in a row for us. I agree about the weather from last year, I hope it carries on to this year, that would be awesome, cause 2010 sucked weather wise!

Just curious....did you already book the Free Dining for Mar 10-14? Reason being, they have now changed the free dining dates to Mar 3-8. I'm pretty sure if you already have an initial reservation booked for your dates you'll be fine though as the initial offer was for Mar 4-10.

We do not have our flights booked yet. We are planning on using Airmiles from Moncton - Newark and then paying cash for Newark - Orlando. This will likely cost use approx $450 cash and 956 Airmiles each. If all cash pricing was better, we'd just save our Airmiles for a future trip - but so far the flight prices are crazy! We are committed to flying from Moncton - Halifax would be our 2nd option - but right now the price differences don't warrant the extra travel.

I plan on having a luggage tag with the "green" Mickey ears on our park bag - hoping to say Hi to some fellow Dis'ers if they introduce themselves.

We're staying @ POP - requested 60's building

I saw the hours posted online (someone who was a travel agent posted the pdf) But that link has now changed, I am going by my memory here, but Sunday night was MK open late, Monday was AK open early, DS Open late. I forget Wednesday, Thursday was Epcot open early, and Friday was MK open early.
Again.. this is from memory but it was for March 4-9 because that is when I was going to be in the parks.
Hope this helps a bit with some plans

Thanks ilovewesties. Nice to be back on the boards.. missed you all. I have not been back to wdw since Dec 08 .. I became disabled in April 09. Thanks to a bladder repair surgery that has given me nerve damage in both my legs. I finally have my meds figured out so I can function enough ( I hope ) for a trip. This is an adults only trip - for our 20th wedding anniversary!

Yes, we booked the free dining before they changed the dates. I did call to make sure it was still ok and they said that we can keep the free dining because we already have it booked. Thank goodness we booked early!:)

Thanks for the calendar, Mousy! We are booked at Port Orleans with free dining March 5-12, but I am going to change to March 4-11. Still searching flights from either Bangor or Portland. Bangor closer (better for weather issues), but Portland is direct.

March 10th to 23rd at Cypress Pointe Grande Villas we were very lucky and got flights on Allegiant from Niagara Falls, Ny to Sanford for $69.00/piece both ways. Even with the fees for baggage and seats, it was still the cheapest I had seen! Maple Leaf tickets bought for the 15th, and Jays game on the 17th.

It hasn't even been a hard winter here, just having anticipation of a change, even for a short while, is awesom!

March 10-16 staying off site this time and driving down. We decided it would be worth being more frugal this trip in order to bring a cousin, my DD's age to enjoy it with us. Her parents are not in a postition to ever take her so its gana be fun for the three of us. Her and my DD are really close.

And in 2 weeks we can start monitoring the weather. Pretty warm there right now. But this weekend I see a high of 10 degrees and a low of 3 degrees :scared1:

It better get that cold and rain out of its system.

I've already begun the packing list. I bought some sundries at dollarama (they have small Tide bottles now) and put new batteries in pal Mickey.

Hard to think of anything else in my down time!

greenclan67
02-05-2012, 08:04 AM
I agree mtmbyck. I am already hunting the weather! Looking at the almanac and praying for nice weather! We had some awesome march break weather last year, warm for the whole 2 weeks, and not much rain at all, if any. Compared to the previous year on March Break. Funny I just bought tide at our local dollarama as well, and fabric softner sheets, sugar packets, salt and pepper packets. My hubby always gets mad because I lug this there, but it is so worth bringing it! This weekend we will be digging out some of our summer clothes, and starting to pre-prep!

Greenclan, I also drive DH nuts packing sundries from home. But it is more cost effective as I don't need the large sizes that Publix will sell. I have grabbed baggies, glow sticks, detergent and dish detergent, dishwasher pucks, sugar, salt and pepper and then will be tossing in tea bags, coffee packs, KD (kids say the KD there tastes different)......... What's on your list to pack?

greenclan67
02-08-2012, 06:59 PM
Grantclaire, see you at the game. I will have 2 little girls wearing some nice pink Leafs jerseys!!
I pretty much pack the same things. I do add fabric softner sheets from home in a ziploc bag in the main part of my suitcase, cause if they smell, it is ok cause it is all clothes. I don't bring KD though cause my kids like the velvetta that we can't get here. I will also admit, I do save my ketchup packets, mayo packets, mustard from fast food places, check the expiry date on them then will keep them if they will be ok when we go, I throw them in a ziploc and take them with me. I also always bring toothpicks for my hubby, cause I will forget to buy them when I am there. Oh and I can't forget the packets of Timmies coffee. Usually the 10 mini bags is enough for our 13 day stay, and I always have a few extra with me.
I always tell my hubby, that when we come back it gets replaced with my shopping while I am there. I hate spending money on a full bottle of detergent, knowing I am going to leave it behind. His bad habit is shopping when there, and if it is cheaper to buy the bigger bottle per ml may as well buy the bigger one then the smaller one, like syrup! GRRR! So only a month to go, we will come back and compare notes on weather coming up soon!

We have rented a car as we are staying offsite!! So we will be driving down that day, we are heading to eithier Clearwater Beach for the day, or to Fort De soto state park, then we will head back to Tampa, hit up Smokey Bones around 4:30 ish and then on to the game!! The way the Leafs and Tampa are playing, it should be a good game!!
We are taking in a Jays spring training game on the 11th of March as well in Lake Buena Vista, in the afternoon. That will be enough for my girls as far as sports go, even though the Hubby is trying to get us to go to one more game eithier Tampa hockey, or another ball game! We are all very excited about the Leaf game!!!

There are 2 Jays games when we are there, they are both at the Disney's Wide World of Sports. One game is Sunday March 11th, at 1 pm. and the other is at the same place on March 17th is and another afternoon game! You can find more info on MLB.com and stubhub.com for tickets! The tickets are fairly cheap, around $20 to $25 dollar range!

It's two different days, but is also a split squad. So not sure how they do split squads. But it will be fun to go watch the Jays play in the afternoon sun!

We have a rental car so will drive to the game, will try to get there early as last time we were there they had activities outside the arena ie bar setup a band playing and things for kids! Nice place to walk around. Will watch out for pink Leafs sweaters!

Maybe us girls can join you for tea!LOL My oldest daughter is hooked on baseball after going to the Cubbies game in Chicago this summer. My youngest and I like going to A game, but probably not 2. We will let them go to the 2nd game, and we will hang out by the pool!

I'm still new to these boards, so i can't post links yet...:mad:

Originally it was confusing because Ticket master seems to have the Jays playing both at the Disney park and at their usual home in Duneden(sp?)

if you PM me i can send you the link, or you can try to track it down on Ticket Master.

I ordered with ticketmaster, you can go to The Braves website there is a link.
Also I think it is a split squad game so half the team is home the rest are playing in Orlando.

I wish I could "like" this, like on facebook!
Countdown has begun here as well! My countdown ticker is off by a day or 2 because we changed our dates a little after doing it!! But we are at 19 days from leaving home as well! We are all very excited!!!
Getting the last of our colds out of system to travel! Just hoping my oldest daughter bounces back as we spent a good portion of the day at emerg yesterday, because she passed out at school for a few seconds, but everything came back normal, ecg, bloodwork, sugar levels, pulse and heart rate. Hoping it was because she just got up to fast, and it made her lightheaded. This trip can't happen fast enough, as long as she is well! We also had a flood in our uptairs bathroom last Friday, and we had to replace all of the flooring up there! Damn bad luck! LOL

Sorry to hear about your daughter. Things will work out!

I'm in the same boat as you ...Colds and can't wait for this trip! We leave on the 9th, get to MCO on the 10th, but don't get to Disney until the 11th. Work has been hectic and yes, I have do some work on Vacation, but I'm psyched to go!

There must be alot of Ontarians going this year. Westjet has sold out all of the flights on Mar 9 and 10. Air Canada only has a few seats left in executive class. Not many direct flights left out of Buffalo as well. Plus all the people who drive!

Ted in Halifax

Ontario has its march break starting then Monday March 12 onward, so that makes Friday and Saturday crazy! Nova Scotia has the same dates ... The cheapest flight leaving March 10th and returning March 17th is 1,242 per person, plus bag fees with major warning for long stop overs etc.

For 1,400 per person, you could avoid the warnings, but with one stop on the way down and 2 on the way back ... Air Canada's cheapest flight is over $2,200 per person. GULP!

Makes me feel better about my JetBlue $350 seats. Is the US really at par. I hadn't even thought about this. Guess I better get to the bank.

Hi Ted
I was worried about the cost of flights for next Christmas so I bit the dust and booked yesterday.I got caught waiting for this year's flights to come down and they just went up. Air Canada Direct out of YYZ- $495.00 with Petro points discount-not as good as flying from Buffalo but I'm happy.
Now I'm on the March 2013 watch.:goodvibes

P.S. Have a Wonderful Cruise!

It drives me nuts to wait for seat sales, so I usually book as soon as they are out. I booked our Westjet flights the minute it came up about 11 mths ago. For me, this is the best and cheapest time to book. I'm going to do that again in April for our Mar 2013 trip.

So jealous! We almost bit the bullet with a last minute trip as Air Transat had $29 flights out of Winnipeg. Going next year so we have more time to plan.

Enjoy everyone!
