Great resort, one bedroom with a view of the lake.
Sounds great! You are probably not missing the wintery mess that much of us were hit with!

this question is for people whom have flown out of Portland.I plan on doing so and am thinking of a early morning flight,say around 6am.My question is,when should I get at the airport? I know that they say 1 1/2- 2 hrs but was wondering if 5am would be ok.I would only need to go through security as I will have already checked in and have my boarding pass.

thanks.

I think 5am should be fine. I would just book your drive from the Hotel at 4:30am and arrive at the airport at say 4:40am. I actually think security etc may not start until 5am. Others?

I agree with Ted, 5 am should be plenty of time. Even with several departing flights and a security line with 50 + passengers we didn't wait more than 15 min to proceed through. What took longer was waiting for the airline counter to open. Last flew Air Tran on the first flight of the day and had to wait more than 30 min for staff to open the counter.

We leave for a last minute trip on Sunday.

Booked it last Sunday: direct flights on WestJet (used RBC MC companion ticket and Avion points) and was able to have a pretty good pick of DVC resorts at 2 weeks out (1BR at OKW, SSR, AKV were all available), and since we haven't been to Saratoga Springs in a few years we decided to "Go home".

Flights for this summer are terrible! We're hoping to go from Aug 18-28, or until the 30th. My friend is a nurse and she got those two weeks for holidays, so we are limited. We don't know the new school calendar yet, I could be going back to work on the 29th, or on the Tuesday after Labour Day! Everything is over $600 out of Charlottetown. I still have a credit with WJ for a flight I cancelled, but I'll fly another airline if they have a better deal. We'd fly out of Halifax, but my friend is still having some hip issues, so we'd rather not have to drive too long. The flights are long enough.

There was a price drop on SW and we now have a credit for the price difference. Interestingly, the price is back up today. Guess it pays to watch

Thought I would pass this along to fellow Maritimers. We just returned from 14 night stay at Wyndham Bonnet Creek (April 11 to 25) and it is the next best thing to staying at a Disney Resort, in fact you have to enter Disney property to get access to WBC. We rented the timeshare through a broker.

For anyone wanting to save some $$$ and have a lots room close to Disney I would highly recommend WBC. We had a one bedroom deluxe unit with full kitchen for $1,260 US. Notes rates vary greatly thought the year.

There is a ton of info on WBC on this board but you may want to start with the following;

Possible timeshare brokers you may want to obtain quotes from;

Fundytrail: Was that price for the 2 weeks? They have a new charge, I think for shuttle service, can you tell me how much and is it per person or unit? Thanks.

Yes the price was for 2 weeks (14 nights), and the shuttle charge was $5.00 per person per round trip. We had a rental car and only used the shuttle once with no issues.

Jumping in to remind and or let some of you know about our Dis Meet / Give Kids The World Fundraiser just outside Halifax in August. It is fun to meet fellow Disers and Disney Freaks. I remember one girls sister last year.... " Oh My God, it is a room full of Tina's". Hope that some of you can make it. Tickets are only $10.00 and we have some incredible prizes rolling in and the podcast team coming from Florida!
