Thank you!

We already had most of our park dates set based on last year, but this has totally helped with the EMH - not to change plans but to prep for EMH crowd levels at some parks! I'm such an over-planner!

Just booked our flights today. They just kept creeping up and up (MSP to MCO) and wanted to just nail it down. NS outbound flights are ridiculous, so we option for an outbound with a layover, NS return. Originally we were going to wait for Sun Country to release their October fares, but sounds like that would be late April which makes me too nervous. Last year flight prices dropped when Sun Country released their fares...

I had to book my flight separate from DH, DD, and DS because I am using Pay with Miles to shave off $300 on my flight, which has more restrictions if cancelled (didn't want that ALL on one itinerary just in case). But I messed it up of course and ended up booking a different connecting flight on our way to MCO. I called Delta, waited for a rep for about 40 minutes, but yay, she was able to void my reservation so I could start over with no penalty!!! totally made my day after the panic moment. Now we're all squared away, flights are booked, seats assigned so we know we are sitting next to each other. DH would have had a heart attack if I were to ditch the fam at DTW and have him flying from DTW to MCO with just the kiddos - not a good way to start a vacation!

Anyway, Pay with Miles got us back down to a "comfortable" rate - wanted to share if any of y'all looking to book with Delta and have some miles and a Delta AmEx. Also gets you 1 free checked bag per passenger with the AmEx. A bit of a hassle, but if you are careful, it's a decent deal.

We are planning to go at the end of Oct to early Nov....still waiting to get the airplane tickets....it seems like it is very high right now....and price hasn't changed for a month or so. I'm booking with Delta flight only, does anyone know if it is too early to book flights now, should we wait a little more for the price to drop? I saw several websites stating to not to book too early for domestic flights........

I'm noticing same trend with prices in flights. I'm watching 3 dif flights rt now for November and one of them just went up $100 within 24 hrs! I downloaded this free app called " on the fly" really helpful in keeping track of flights and price.

Prices on Delta went up about a month ago. Last year they went down mid-March so I was hoping they might do the same this year, but they didn't (I priced it out last year to get an idea and watched fares closely). Last year October fares were up for the holidays, dropped in mid-March for a few weeks, then went up again in April and didn't drop again... By the time the Fall sales hit, the deal with the sale was no better than the lower March fare really.

I also did hear on the news that the major airlines have been raising their prices and seeing if other regional carriers will follow. Right now it's a gamble. In the past 3 weeks I have only seen them go up farther with the NS routes, caved and just went with a LO on the departing flights since those haven't gone up AS much. Crazy ridiculous fares though, but then gas prices have also been rising... Good luck.

Hell, Jet Blue hasn't even released fares for the last week of October when I'm going.

We booked on Southwest for October on the day the flights were released. Our flight home is sold out already. Crazy! Until Disney releases discounts we aren't even sure we are going.

Yeah, we were watching SWA too, and they actually had slightly better fares than Delta, but when we shaved off $300 on our Delta tickets we came out better - plus no baggage fees with the Amex and assigned seats... I was shocked as even SWA fares went up over the 1st week. Limited options in MN since it's a Delta hub unfortunately. :S Last year RT fares for Oct were never under $300, now that seems to have been bumped to $400!

We have a ton of SW miles so that paid for our flight and we can cancel them. We had to just pick random dates since Disney hasn't released anything yet. It is getting harder as the years go by to get everything to line up right. The think the flights we booked were around $300. Very few choices direct out of Philly these days.
