If you want something closer to the shopping areas (more $$ though) there is a neat hotel, Wyndam, http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/PWMHT/...?cid=ROMLZWYND

WestJet is having a seat sale right now... $72 for 72 hrs sale. But... nothing for orlando that I can see. Was worth a try though. I did see that from Montreal you could get to Fort Lauderdale with this rate.

Has anyone ever flown in July? Last August I got $550 out of Charlottetown (YYG) which I thought was fairly decent. This year we're hoping to go in July, around July 25-Aug 5 basically, and the prices with Air Canada are higher, around $650 taxes total. Should we book at those rates or wait it out for something better? We've thought about flying out of Maine, but the thought of the long drive after the flight just doesn't cut it for us-we'd rather that time in Florida! My sister is also flying down for a few days at the end of the trip and flying back with us (hopefully), so we'd like to fly out of YYG. It is nice and close to home too, last year I was home around 25 minutes after landing, with all my luggage!

I just plugged your dates into Expedia and got essentially the same rates for Moncton but saved about $100 per ticket for flights out of Halifax. Not sure how many of you are going but if there are enough it might be worth the extra driving. We've got US Airways as a new carrier starting in June so they have some pretty good rates for June and July right now. Good luck.

I'll have to look into that, but I think we've decided to pay more and go from here. They live about 20 minutes from the airport, but I live about 3 minutes away, it's just too nice to be home within about a 1/2 hour of landing. Takes about 5-10 minutes for the luggage, and then we're gone. Thanks for looking though! I'll keep checking too, if we saved a lot, we might go for it.

Oh yeah I know what you mean. We live about 15 minutes from the Halifax airport and even though we could save a couple of hundred dollars on airfare for the two of us by going through Maine I can't get over the extra time it would take!

The airlines/airports know that.....that's why we get exploited and suckered so often living in Atlantic Canada. It really is a long haul to drive to Maine from anywhere in Nova Scotia. We're out in Antigonish and I hate even driving to the Halifax airport! hehehe

Just got flights out of Charlottetown. I was only able to get two of the three flights at the best price, but I still got some great ones. July 25-Aug 5 $500.99 taxes and fees included for one and $563.99. From Aug 2-5 for the third person I got $500.99 too! They're at $199 and $179 for some flights for July-August and maybe other months too.

Seeing some flights in June out of Moncton to MCO at 128.99 one way. At that price, it's about equivalent to driving to portland, food, gas, 2 nights hotel. Hopefully I will be so lucky for September.

That's a great price! I love being able to fly from closer to home, don't you?

Absolutely, considering we are about a 2 min drive to the Moncton Airport. If that. lol Would be awesome. We've never done it, hoping to, just for convenience. I do love shopping in Portland, but it's hard on our son...he has never been one for travelling or motion for long periods of time. He survives it, but it's not a relaxing fun time for him.

Do a run to the dollar store ... wrap up a couple of kid gifts and give them to the kids along the ride. My plan is leave Halifax ... open a gift in Truro, Amherst, Fredericton, Houlton and Bangor.

Consider it a bribe!

Oh yes, we have done the bribes. We've done the route 2 times already both in Dec. So NOTHING to see...all snow and bare trees. BORING! But we have done dvds in the car and books and reading, colouring, etc etc. What we usually do is stop in Saint John for a bathroom break. Then onto Calais and stop at the Family Dollar for a toy. That's their bribe, it's tradition now. Then on to Bangor where we stop at a store..Kmart or something... toysrus then get some lunch, then on to POrtland. BUT! The bonus about this year is that we have headrests with a screen in the back of them. So we can play dvds and they each have their own screen. So on that note, it will be easier this year..and that they are older (first trip they were 3 and 4, then last dec 3 and just 5, this oct they are almost 5 and 6)

Last ride we went with my Mom, 15 yr old sister, kids and us in a half ton. It was actually a lot of fun, and someone was always available to entertain the kids.

Oh and did I mention i LOVE giving homework while driving?? My son just LOVES it. lol
