Site was slow and I needed to book the out going in two separate pieces in case DD school work load too much and she and DH would travel later in that week. What would you able to purchase.

Well that was not a fun time this morning booking! The site got stuck on confirming my Early Bird confirmations and I was on hold for an hour (1/2 hour at home and then had to start all over again for another 1/2 hour on the commute to work - only to have the call dropped after 35 minutes. UGH!). I never did speak to anyone, but I left the confirmation page up when I left and it seems like it eventually went through. I checked SW when I got to work and it looks like it's good except for DH's Early Bird check-in.

We got PVD to MCO for two with Early Bird check-in for $534. That's only a $40 increase over what I paid in 2013, so I'm good with it. I was disappointed with the flight options though and hope that they add some additional flights closer to our travel dates. We have an 8:05 am flight out and we don't get to MCO until 11:15. The earlier 6:00 am flight, isn't a nonstop though, cost $100 more (???) and gets in a little LATER!

Good luck to everyone else booking today! I hope you get good flights!

Never had to book for Feb vacation week to MCO before. The prices were rather shocking. Ended up booking MHT-MCO which I'd prefer not to do in February but the times and prices were better than PVD. I had to take what I could get. Within 30 minutes of booking the prices jumped 50% so I'm glad I booked when I did.

We're not going to Disney this year, but I was impatiently waiting for flights to Tampa (going to Clearwater) for Presidents Day week. I got $226/RT per person flying out Monday morning from Buffalo, NY and coming home Friday night. We had to cut 2 days off of our vacation due to flight costs being almost double the days we wanted to originally book them for.

My husband has been begging for a relaxing week at the beach, so this trip is for him. If it was a Disney trip, I would have coughed up the extra money for the extra 2 days.

We aren't going to Disney this Feb for President's week. I decided to look at the prices, just for the heck of it. The cheapest flight left at 9:30 AM was $431! Wow!

We have APs and DVC so we wouldn't have to pay for passes and I had already booked 7 nights at OKW once the 11 month window opened so although the airfare is higher than I've ever paid going to FL, the trip will still be somewhat reasonable.

We got R/T from PHL-MCO for $294.20 each person (not including EBCI), which is a little higher than I was expecting, but still within budget. Price for the return flight went up $20 right after we booked & I was on it as soon as it opened!

We are headed to Disneyland, and beginning of February, so I was able to get what I wanted. Between companion passes and miles, (paid for half with miles, half with $$) I got 5 of us there and back for $642!

I totally forgot it was today until after 10! UGH! Nothing reasonable out of PVD by then, but did OK out of BDL with n/s Saturday, returning Friday night. Booked all flights home on points, and one down on points. STILL had to pay OOP almost 700 for 3. Yikes.
