I have nothing to add, sorry, but those are some great deals! Sometimes it's really annoying that we can't get such good deals as in the US. I live in Charlottetown, about >5 minutes from the airport. The convenience of flying through our tiny airport is really great, but the price is not always. I was lucky last summer to get $550 out of YYG (Charlottetown). I'm also usually travelling solo, so it's not as big a deal for me, but it's still usually so much more.

I'm seeing a few Bangor to Sanford december options that work out to $129=0 taxes in, per person, but you need to add bag fees plus transportation to disney. If anyone was planning to rent a car, this might be an option.

My 4 could fly for US480, plus 4 bags each way (120), plus Mears to Disney (240 - covers 4 both ways) ...

The 240 would be better used if someone was already planning on a rental.

- - - - - - Just a thought - - - - - -
Ted's Budget thought .... for 4 (10 days)
Airfare and Bags $600 US (could reduce bags to 2 large bags and save $60)
Car rental $400US? (priceline)
Off site Hotel $1000 (Hotwire)
Disney passes $1000
Food $800 (yes optimistic?)
Park/fly 150
Gas 200?

Just over $4000 ....
- - - - - - - - end of Ted's Thought - - - - - - -

That's pretty good right there. Our trips have worked out to be about $1200 per person, including food, for a 7 day trip.

For us, your question about the $800 food budget is very doable, and we are a family of 5. Howerver, we are light eaters and can split some meals between 2.

Ooh, I like this one!

I particularly like the later flight leaving Orlando. Might be able to take advantage of that last day and hit a last ride or 2 before leaving!

Hi Marcy,

I've seen about two or three... there don't seem to be many PEI Dis'ers around! Nice to sort of meet you!
