I have an update

We've changed our dates and resort....

Previously 12/29-1/7 at AOA LM

Now....

1/2-1/11 at Pop Century (for $551 less!)

Now...just have to figure out flights. From Toronto (where the airport is 15 minutes away) we are looking at about $800-$900....but if we drive to Detroit (4 hours away) we can fly for just $300!! and I really don't mind driving. Even if I add a hotel before and after I'm still saving money. The only part I'm not sure if is the airline...it's Air Trans, recently purchased by Southwest -- I'm just worried that they'll go out of business or something...I get nervous about small airlines.

Any thoughts?

Now gotta go and make me a ticker...
Love your screen name! Woo Hoo!! First trips are great...but you know the very best thing about them? Planning your next trip! Disney is so huge and you can't possibly see/do/know it all...So think of this first trip as the first of many!! It makes for more pleasant vacationing!

This will be my second time, my moms 4th time and my daughter and BF's 1st visit. So very excited!!! will send pm message to join fb private group
yay!! Sounds like a great trip.

I always think adding on an extra day is great -- like you said, it gives you a full day in the parks, etc...also not as tired from all the traveling. But as for needing it? Nah, you probably don't need it. Want it? You bet!!

I'm not sure that I got your PM for a FB friend request...

Yay!! Pop is really nice and you can easily walk the bridge over to check out AoA. That's exactly what I did in my Mommy and Me Bday trip in July.

As for Air Tran, I think they are reputable. my only concern for anyone traveling in winter is the weather. Gotta be aware of possible delays, cancellations, etc.

So excited! We are going Jan 23-31! We've have been trying to go for the last 3 years but would never come together. Last week, this January trip magically started fitting.

This will be DH and DS first trip and my first trip in 40 years. Yes I was very young the first time around.

So so excited!

Marsha -- I agree, I was a bit worried about the driving too, so my plan is to arrive a full 24 hours in advance in Detroit, so even if I have to drive super duper slow we'll have time to spare. I love driving so that part is okay, I'll just have to think up enough to keep DS occupied. I think we'll walk over to AOA on our first night to check out all the new stuff. Thanks for updating the first post!

nansmama -- Welcome

eisforpants -- That sounds like a pretty exciting trip -- two firsts and a return after so long for you. I'm glad things came together for you, I hope it's magical!

I'm 80 days away as of today! I feel like I've done so much planning, but still have more to do of course. I also started a pre-trip report today, it will be mostly planning for now, but I want to include lots of pics as I go along and plan; I love reading pretrip reports and trip reports with lots of pictures. If anyone is interested in following along, the link is in my signature.

We are going at beginning of January but I'm curious what photo share is and how it works.

My flight dilemma is resolved. I read the information incorrectly on flying from Detroit/Buffalo, so it's only a savings of $200 over flying out of Toronto -- so I've booked our flights from here...that's done, and I put another $500 on our trip -- . This is the only bill I enjoy paying!!

Kennethsrib -- I hope that the stuff you have going on goes smoothly for you from now on.

DenaRox -- What part of Canada are you from? I live in Brampton, just outside of Toronto.
