Here's hoping there's no bad weather in Montreal to hold us up.
Not possible, we never have bad weather
Enjoy your trip.

We were actually going to drive this year from Moncton, but found a fantastic flight fare from Boston (about an 8 hr drive from Moncton) to Orlando, $640 all in for the three of us...couldn't beat that anywhere, I searched and searched...

Southwest, 2 free bags!! Flew last year with Continental and had to pay for $15.00 for the first bag...each way!

We make the drive down, part of the trip, stay in a hotel overnite to get a free parkandfly, they have them everywhere...

I find it hard to pay 3 times as much to fly out of Moncton, and it's sad, if only Air Canada or West Jet would catch on, the Canadians are still flying to the US, we're just flying from US points...

Anybody know what days airlines fly direct out of Halifax to Orlando? I'm looking at "off-season" ....November. I can't find any pattern to it!

I'd drive to Portland again in a minute but I'm trying to get my mom to come along and direct would be much easier with her.

TIA!

I don't know of any direct flights in November. Airtransat (via Canjet) doesn't start that early. I went to Portland in November to do to Disney... roads are usually ok in November. Otherwise you reroute through Montreal, Toronto or Newark or somewhere else in the US.

I usually stalk .... from YHZ AC, Westjet, Continental, United. From PWM my preferred in JetBlue, but willing to go Alligiant, Continental or United

I'll echo Ted's thoughts on the direct flights from Halifax in Nov. I've never seen anything direct that time of year.

That pretty much confirms my suspicions. Thanks!

Now the challenge is...which connecting airport would be best with a nervous flyer (I'm fine but mom will be a wreck). I'm leaning towards connecting in the US so we can clear customs in Halifax and have that one hurdle behind us. My mother would like the airport that is least likely to have a bomb on board...sorry Mom I don't think there's a website for that...

Your mother sounds EXACLY LIKE ME! I absolutely HATE flying...it's non stop or we don't go. If I have to drive across the border to get a non stop then so be it. This time we lucked out and found one with AC out of Halifax (last time we drove to Boston and flew with Delta). Times aren't the best but at least it's non stop Honestly I don't know how my husband puts up with me...

Westjet vacation has their ads running in the Halifax papers ... basically a value and air from Halifax 749 plus taxes per adult plus 399 plus taxes for kid. (moderate there too for $100 to $150 more per Adult) Does not include park tickets and or food.

March 27th thru April

Family of 4 would be just under $3,000 with taxes in ...

Don't think the rate is that good .... room at a value can get a 30% discount during their flight times (excluding Easter), so that puts Air well over $2000 for 4 people.

With Hopper and QSP this packages would set you back about $5000 plus for 7 days (2 of which may involve travel impact.)

Sept rates

Love this thread! I am wondering if any seasoned travellers out there can help me out.
I am prefer rates from Moncton, but Hali will work too. (really trying for YQM though as we live 1 min away)
Wondering what rates might look like end of September? There are 4 of us, we have flewn out of Portland twice to MCO with Continental and the other time was with AirTran. No complaints except the drive is a long one with 2 kids. We are looking for a completely different experience next time around (3rd DW trip in 2011) We want to go during low period, cheap flights, good DW deals, and hot weather. Last Dec trip we had a few cool days, still warm compared to here, but we wanted some heat!
Besides this (off topic) anyone know if there are any deals at the Disney store in Halifax right now? We are coming down next Friday.

We flew out of Halifax last September and we paid $189 each way +tax. IT was around $1375 for 3. We bought off of travelocity and they were united flights that connected in Washington DC on the way down and in Chicago on the way back.

We booked at the end of April and I did notice that Air Canada & West Jet had flights for about the same amount available into May.
