Question Calgary, Spring Break and U.S. Customs?

With spring break upon many of us here in Calgary - I was wondering if many have had any issues going through customs at the airport on their way to either DLR or WDW?

My curiosity of course stems from the recent cutbacks in government funding to their department and if they have cut back on staff here yet.

We fly out the evening of Wednesday, May 1st - and just trying to keep an eye out for any news.

Thanks and even if you did have a long wait - I am sure Disney was worth it!!

We went through on Sunday and had no problems whatsoever. Our flight to LAX was full and we breezed through customs and security. Even LAX was quick at security.

We are flying out of Edmonton to Orlando (April 20-27) so will let you know our experience as I have been wondering if we will face delays too.

We went from Calgary on Mar 28, no issues. I was told to be there 3 hours ahead of my flight but at the airport it clearly states 2 hours.

We fly out of/into Calgary on those dates as well so I'll also report back with our experience at the airports.

All was great both ways. YYC and MCO were easy peasy and we didn't notice any waits or anything weird.
