this might be a crazy question but does anyone know if airfares go up once the the FD is announced. Right now I can book from NY Islip for 110 each way. I want to book my flights while they are this low -- but am worried about the dates. If I book for aug25th do you think i am safe

Yes, I do also think that will be the date for Disney Visa holders. I'm leaning towards the April date, but they've done May releases twice with free dining, so there's some validity there. But April 25 or May 16, I definitely think that would be for the Disney Visa holders.

Are you planning on going either way? If so, book. Those are great prices from NY. But if you are only going if FD is offered, then I would wait.

If you arrive the day before it starts, you could split the stay and do a room only for the first night and then book the package as a 2nd reservation. Out of luck when it ends before you arrive .... But you can split stays for a discount that starts during your visit.

We usually get air from Islip or JFK depending on price. In all the years I've been, I've done better booking earlier rather than later. If prices go down, you may be able to get a lower rate. It sure beats prices going up

Anyway, my husband has got it in his mind that we will take our first long road trip down in September.. He loves road trips! Where I'd rather sit down for 2 and a half hours and be at MCO on the way to Magical Express.. But then again marriage is all about compromise.. So, I keep telling myself. Self, do not complain..

I have a bounceback offer with regular free dining at POR, hope this helps.

Hmmmmm.......so I hear there is a big press release coming on April 25 as part of the 'Monstrous Summer' promotion that will introduce plans to add two MORE ships to the DCL fleet and/or major rehab on the Wonder and/or Magic. Wonder if this would affect and/or delay the likelihood of a late summer discount? Thoughts?

I don't think it should. The cruise is separate from the parks. Cruise runs deals at different times.
I was on the Magic last May and the crew mentioned a major rehab after it leaves the US. As far as more ships being introduced, that would be great.
