so I've dragged my butt on booking our flights down just b/c I've been preoccupied with the holidays and such, I figured I'd do it after. All of a sudden the other day my flight (that hasn't moved in months) went from $358 to $428 which isn't a huge amount except the bump up in points (20k to 25k) means I only had enough points to cover 2 tickets vs. 3. So instead of the $358 I was planning to pay (for 1 ticket), I would now have to pay for 2 tickets x $428 = $860. That's a pretty big difference. (I could buy the 15k points I needed but that would have been like $375 so no bargain.) SO....... I just sucked it up and booked a 6:30 a.m. flight which means we'll have to stay overnight by the airport (Manchester) which I really didn't want to do. BUT, I guess it's not the end of the world. On the bright side, we should be at AoA by 11 a.m. (probably ready for a nap).

I know there are several people here familiar with MHT; since it's so much smaller/less busy than Logan do we not need to get there so early or do we still need to get there 1.5 hours before?

ETA: I just checked SW website. They recommend 2 hours for Boston and 90 minutes for MHT. Poop, I was hoping to be able to sleep in a little.
I'm excited to fly SW. In my many travels over the years I've NEVER flown SW
Honestly, because we live less than 10 minutes from MHT, it is not uncommon for us to show up 45-60 minutes before our flight...because waiting for a plane with kids is not fun, but it has always been fine cutting it that close.....MHT is compact and the line through security is short.

thats what i figured.....no huge security line. our flight is actually 6:50 so if we get a wakeup call at 5, in the lobby at 5:15 and at the airport around 5:30, that should be fine. even adding a few minutes for a delay in getting there, we still will be there at least an hour before

I'm sure I'm not the only one with a few busy days ahead. May all of you enjoy every moment you have with family and friends. I may not have a chance to get on for a few days, so wanted to send my greetings now. Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Solstice, Saturnalia, Litha, Boxing Day, or whatever you celebrate!

Santa knows I want a MacBook Pro for college...and that I paid for half of it...so it better be under my tree! xD

Got to have just a little "taste" of Disney World this weekend!! We flew into MCO Saturday night and stayed a night at the Nick Hotel, driving on down to Naples yesterday to visit my family for Christmas.

We had no plans to set foot on Disney property, but as DH was yelping for a place to eat dinner Saturday night, one if the closest places to us with good reviews was "this place called Olivia's".

Thanks to a recent thread on here, I recognized the name as being a Disney restaurant! After looking at the menu, he was sold. I was able to get a last minute ADR, and it was wonderful! DH declared it the hidden gem of Disney.

We had never been to OKW before, as we are usually dependent on Disney transportation to get around. So I was glad to get to check it out when we had a car for a change. And the kids had a blast playing on the playground and "beach".

It was weird and cool being at Disney so unexpectedly, felt a little like "practice" for the real thing in a few months, lol!

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday. We just collapsed at home after 3 long family filled days. We are now bracing for a huge snowstorm, so will have lots of time on here to catch up on my Disney news, and start planning my strategy for Jan 3, to get that new discount
