Researching pre- and post-stays now...

I hope you chose this one; we really enjoyed having other young people who were close to our kids' ages on our last trip.

we are looking at june 24 trip. We might end up on 28 th trip depending snow days. Have you looked at the airline prices? What used to be $900 ticket is noe $1680 with Continental. My ??, do you wait or buy the tickets now at these obviously inflated prices.

I'm watching and waiting for now. The prices I've been seeing are $1,700 for us. Crazy. I did find some for $1,200 out of an airport that is 4 hours from us. I expected around $1,200. If I saw something for $900, I'd jump on it.

Wow, how are you going to predict your snow days? We get a ton of snow here, but rarely any snow days. Our planned last day of school is June 7.

I am looking at the August 2 trip and the best airfare I could find from San Francisco was 2000.00 each for coach !!! That would be 8000 in airfare alone for the 4 of us. I am having a bit of sticker shock now that I am thinking of actually booking a trip.

With the air prices so high, I'm seriously feeling sick over the cost of this trip.

Someone please remind me that it will be worth it!

Thanks. I don't know why the air price has almost pushed me over the edge. I was expecting high air prices, and the difference in total of the price with my expected air vs the price with the actual (as it stands today) air is not that great, so I don't know why I'm flipping.

We've saved and waited for this trip since our last one in 2008, so I shouldn't worry. Right?

i agree, having waited for two years (saving Points) we have decided to go and we will wait and book when the prices come down. Are you booking your air thru Disney?

Do you mean your waiting to book your air until the prices go down, or your ABD?

I booked with Dreams Unlimited, and will have them book my air through Disney, so that I don't have to worry about losing anything on a cancelled trip. I'm going to keep my eye on the air, and when I see something I want, I'll let DU know. At least, I think that's the system.

Does anyone know if you can use airline points to upgrade seats if you have Disney do your air?

Will depend on class of the fare O, Q, T, & W are tougher to upgrade.
Some can upgrade with points only, some have to be cash & points. Look for the letter assigned to the fare you get.

We may try to get business class on the way there to assure that we sleep well on the plane.

22 booked on this trip so far...

I'm so happy, I just spoke with ABD, and was told that there are now 22 booked on this trip, with 8 kids 17 years old and under. Perfect! A big part of our enjoyment of our last ABD was having the group of kids along; my kids really enjoyed being with everyone.

Anyone on the boards also on this trip?
