Thanks for the info on the Millenium 5boyz!

As for Fasttrack, it is located on Genesse St, directly across from Buffalo airports lot A. They have a shuttle that takes you directly to the airport, but honestly, with the 10% off coupon on the Buffalo airport website, its cheaper to park at lot A.
When Fasttrack was Sunpark, we always parked there as they were alot cheaper than the airport, but since Sunpark was bought out, thats not the case anymore.

3mouseketeers...No problem that's what we are here for... , back attcha with the fasttrack parking. I did print a coupon for $40/wk at the Buffalo Airport parking. So I guess that's not to shabby. We parked there the last time we flew out of Buffalo.

WE STAYED AT THE MILLENIUM IN DEC. 08 POOL AREA IS NICE BUT ROOMS WERE IN NEED OF REFURBISHMENT. My daughter had booked 3 rooms for all of us, with park and fly on 2 rooms. My oldest daughter and I both paid cash when departing the hotel, my daughter Jolenewho booked the 3 rooms paid on her credit card which was also used to hold our reservations when she booked it back in aug.08. All was fine to this point until we got into the Orlando airport and went to use her credit card for 2 car rentals and found that the millenium had taken 500 dollars off the card over her room price. This became a big problem, called the millenium and they said it would go back credited to the card in 2 days well it became an even bigger problem as my daughter was planning on the credit card for the car rentals . I was able to help out but in the end after repeated calls to the millenium when the card didn t get credited turned out it never got credited till thier return home after 8 days!The millenium staff were in fact very rude when we did call so be very aware when using credit cards for room holds, we stayed at the Quality inn in may nice enough and I told the manager what had happened with the card and I didn t want to use a credit card for hold and she held our room without one. you do need to speak with a manager for that to happen but they were very helpful and we will stay there on future trips.

boundfordisney....that was not good! I heard there were some terrible rooms when I was waiting to check in....a friend of ours who works at a high end hotel got us the ressies for Millenuim so I knew she would not steer us wrong. She booked the Superior King and it was very nice. I think that was one of the ones refurbished. As for the credit card, I think they did the same to me for a few days too. But has since been added back on. I usually dont pay for the room with credit card but.....we did so much shopping I ran out of cash . Thanks for sharing, it is always great to hear different experiences.

Air Tran in Buffalo

Air Tran has direct flights to MCO for $62 and only $16 in tax as opposed to the $200 + that we pay here at YYZ. We are taxed to death here in Canada!!

We booked our October flight yesterday and paid 518 tax in (we have to pay extra for checked baggage though)

It is worth the drive. I am going to look into Detroit next time, I hadn't thought of that!

Detroit

We are flying out of detroit (never been to the airport before) with Air Tran the end of Sept. We don't fly until early evening so I had thought we would leave London at lunch and then have time to burn energy there. I'm thinking maybe staying at a hotel is cheaper for parking? Although we are CAA members does that make it better? Is there stuff to do around the airport if we stayovernight as we will have the day to waste? Sorry for all the questions.

There is not much around the Detroit airport. There are restaurants and hotels. We paid $109 to stay over at the Marriott but we were flying at 7:00am, that included breakfast and parking at the Qwik Park. CAA/AAA works at many places. If it was me I would check for the best park n fly rate, then drive down earlier in the day.

The Qwik Park is pretty efficient and there are others. Parking at the airport is expensive I have heard. The shuttles for Qwik Park came very quickly and the lot is 5-10 minutes away from the airport(if that). I think the Qwik Park website has coupons. There is another parking lot across the road but I don't know their name.....Have fun!!

Thanks for the info. I went to the qwik park site and printed the coupon (buy one day and get one free). That's a great deal.

We go for our interview tomorrow. If you google Nexus and go to the US website, you'll find all the info you need. We have passports but want the Nexus card for quicker bridge crossings... especially into to Port Huron!

Hey, did you stay at the Fairfield by any chance?
What time did you leave the hotel to get the 7 o'clock flight?
Was there breakfast foods out that early?


thanks for any info.
