No word that I know of! Ohhh how I wish southwest would come in there. I don't even mind flying allegiance but their return times are like 7am. Too early for me!! We use Philly now too. Usually southwest because I don't have to pay for bags.

Hello, we are in Harrisburg and the rest of our Disney Lovers are in York and Royersford. We are going the first week of December. Flying out of 3 different airports this trip. First time we all went, we all flew together, but leaving home and coming home on different schedules.

Welcome fellow Central Pennsylvanian! I'm across the river to your west about 5 miles in Camp Hill.

Sharon... Hermitage... I'm seeing some familiar places which may actually have heard of my town.

Another Meadvillain! That's where I grew up!! And still am. It's Fair Week so we're gearing up to get our country on and going to Waldameer later this week. I just keep thinking of these as pre-shows and warm-ups to our Sisters Trip to Disney next month. Oh, and to any who vacationed around here at nearby Conneaut Lake Park, someone burned down the Beach House a couple weeks ago. Very sad.

What week in September? Too bad one of those meets wasn't last month. My Dad had appointments all day in Pittsburgh and I could have used something to do.

When we were little (this is 15-20 years ago), we'd always take two days down and back and stay the night at a Days Inn in Statesville, NC. Travel games, books and frequent stops to let us kids out to release energy got us through then we would spend the first evening with relatives. An overnight trip then waking up in Disney would have been amazing, not that I'd trade our experiences for anything. Maybe to get the original Imagination ride back. Maybe.

I miss the fair. My boys always seem to start school the week of the fair so we are never able to get over for it. I heard about the Beach House. It is sad to see how the park has declined.

It is very sad. The park comes to life again in September and October for "Ghost Lake" activities, but other than that I don't even remember going to the actual park since I was in elementary school. I've never even ridden the Blue Streak. We just came back from the Fair and everything is always the same, give or take a few new deep fried treats.

Hey fellow PA residents! I'm from the Susquehanna Valley. Think the home of Little Leage Baseball - Williamsport - and I'm fairly close. I'm an hour from State College and an hour from Wilkes Barre....where I will be dropping my son off on Friday to begin college.

I'm only 20 minutes from Knoebels Amusement Park....anyone heard of it?

Glad to know there are so many of us on here.

Our newspaper had an article about a lot of volunteering that had been going on at the park this summer. I haven't been there myself in years. It seems like every time they get some forward motion going to get the park back on its feet, something bad happens.

Hey Meadville! I'm in Sharon. We were just discussing Meadville today at work. We saw an ad in a magazine for "Fiercely made in Meadville" Channellock. We just drove up your way en route to Erie for the Biggest Loser half marathon on the 17th and then again to hit up Splash Lagoon before school started this week.

So sad about the Beach House. That park cannot catch a break. I remember going every year as a kid for work picnics for my dad. Do you remember Fairyland Forrest across the street? I went there for my kindergarten field trip a LONG time ago!

Just seeing this - I live in Lemoyne. Mom lives in Camp Hill. Too funny. Wish I'd known about the June meet up in Hershey. I wonder if anyone would be interested in another for the Hershey Park in the Dark or Christmas Candylane?

We flew to Sanford using Allegient in February. easy flight, though they do charge you for everything (including carryons) but you do have to either rent a car or hire a service -- no magical express from Sanford.

Only on a PA related board could someone be discussing little ol' Meadville. I don't think I've ever seen one of those ads! How were the marathon and Splash Lagoon? We only went to Splash once and that was a handful of years ago.

Sorry, but I don't remember Fairyland Forrest. Just checked with my mom and she never took us there, only to the Park. What was it like? And apparently the ol' Park is still going. I just heard on the radio that they were having some events this weekend like cover bands and such.

Have you looked at the frontier flights out of Wilmington? They don't fly out of Harrisburg for our dates (switched the schedule to Tuesdays and Saturdays). I looked at the Wilmington flights and could have booked five round trip tickets for $750. It's gone up a bit since then. We decided not to go with that flight because we're leaving in January and I didn't want to risk having issues with the road, but I was soooo tempted. At the end, I booked a Delta flight that has a fairly short layover in Kentucky. We could have had a cheaper flight from BWI taking airtran. But when I factored in the extra driving (HIA is twenty minutes from our house), it sort of balanced out. At least when we land, we'll be home in half an hour and not looking at a trip up 83 North to get home.
