Maritimes + New England best fares to Orlando (Post em)

Okay ... thought I'd start a thread to track air fares from the East Coast to Orlando. So if you see something out there, please post it. The more details the better.

Examples

Portland Maine PWM to MCO Feb 6 to Feb 16th.
2 Adults 2 kids
No bag fees
Stop over in JFK
Total cost of flight $961.60 USD
So $240 US each person taxes in.

fare from jetblue.com

Special cost notes I will add: Need a stay park and fly, since flight leaves 6am., estimated cost of $200 USD for this.

I got Halifax to Orlando Feb 3 departure and Feb 11 DIRECT return for $1960 all in for 4 adults.

Feb 3 depart 6:25am through Montreal, arrive Orlando 12:05pm
Feb 11 depart 6:35pm direct to Halifax, arrive around 11pm

Thought this was a not bad deal especially with arrival and departure times we will have almost 9 full park days!

Add the buy 4/get 3 at AKL and we're doing this trip for only about $500 more than a 7 night Pop Century for 3 people in 2006.

Can't wait till we go, only 75 MORE DAYS!!!!

For an advance ticket purchase out of YHZ that is a good find. Plus the opportunity cost of driving to the US in February is more (i.e get caught in a snow storm and you would wish that you had selected YHZ)

Good find! mcgraws ... who are you flying through? AC?

We bought from Air Canada yhz to mco direct at the end of April. it was $229, (303 with Tax) down and $224, (256 with tax). A total of $1670 for 3. Not great but not bad. I am happy to pay a little extra for the direct flight.

We leave on a Thursday at 2:55pm arrive 5:41 coming back we leave Orlando at 6:40pm and arrive at 11:10pm. So we have a nearly whole day the last day.

I think that is a fine fare .. especially when you are buying for 3 .... I have always bought for 5 people, so any savings is multiplied by 5 ... when it is just me and my wife ... I think I'll be paying the extra to leave from Halifax

A fare of around 500 from Halifax is fine in my books ... especially when bought that far in advance. $550 is fine!

If I saw one below 300 I could be returning to Disney very quickly ...especially with the 4 for 3 moderate deal at Disney

I'm seeing a few Bangor to Sanford december options that work out to $129=0 taxes in, per person, but you need to add bag fees plus transportation to disney. If anyone was planning to rent a car, this might be an option.

My 4 could fly for US480, plus 4 bags each way (120), plus Mears to Disney (240 - covers 4 both ways) ...

The 240 would be better used if someone was already planning on a rental.

- - - - - - Just a thought - - - - - -
Ted's Budget thought .... for 4 (10 days)
Airfare and Bags $600 US (could reduce bags to 2 large bags and save $60)
Car rental $400US? (priceline)
Off site Hotel $1000 (Hotwire)
Disney passes $1000
Food $800 (yes optimistic?)
Park/fly 150
Gas 200?

Just over $4000 ....
- - - - - - - - end of Ted's Thought - - - - - - -
