Spirit usually has super cheap flight and parking there cost pennies compared to major airports.

Just something that I thought of while skimming thru the last few pages of posts.
Someone just told me the other day about AC, but that is about 2 1/2 hours away...Longer than the flight - haha!

I am having serious pdd over here...The flower and garden festival is open...I want to go................My ap expires in April, I think that is what is killing me...

First - Hope all goes well with your son.

Second - What's the problem?

LOL! YEah I can't say I blame you for not wanting to make a road trip longer then a flight to MCO.

We had an issue finding reasonable airfare coming home from Disney back to Philly last may, so we flew into AC. Wasn't bad, but what killed me was after landing having to sit in a car back to Philly for an hour and a half! I'm a bit spoiled we only live about a 5 minute car ride from Philly International. We usually can get really good deals with Air Tran to Orlando. I'm glad I booked our airfare when I did for June, b/c ticket prices went up well over $30 each way!

Here's a tip. The staircase at the end of Kudu trail provides for some very close views of the fauna.
