Hello!! Maybe our paths will cross this time! I don't really have our plans finalized yet because we are going to meet up with DH's brother for a day or two during our trip. We're waiting to figure that out before finalizing everything. I suppose I'll get around to writing a PTR but not for a little while. But I've been keeping notes... Nice to "see" you!!

MA teacher here and booked for April 12-20th. We are flying out from Manchester NH to Orlando right after school on that Friday... hoping we make it! We are currently booked for 3 nights at the AOA in a mermaid room then moving over tp POR Royal room. May rethink that plan with the new discount out though.
Wanted to add to all my MA friends I feel us. The airfare is sooo expensive for this week but being a teacher (DH too) this is the only time we can go. Flying US Airways since we have their card and got the kids tix for 99.00 but with blackout dates for the week we could not use our point for airfare so we had to buy two full price tix to the tune of 691.00 per person

We'll be there will bells on!!! We're planning on arriving 3/29, then off to our first Disney Dream cruise 4/4. I've got dining reservations, but none yet for the resort (I've NEVER run this late in my planning, but we're waiting on a chunk - o - cash haha).

I've got one reservation for 4/7 at Be Our Guest. Can't wait!!

my DH is a MA teacher as well and we"re flying out of MHT on the 12th too. he took the day off though so we got an early flight. i dont know if you saw any of my earlier posts but yeah.....airfare has been a nightmare. even with getting (3) one way tix free with points AND using a $350 credit, it ended up costing us almost $1000 for the 4 of us. thats obscene!

1000 is a great price for a vacation week! We were hoping to go on April vacation also (all meal reservations are made) but no
way are we paying there crazy air faire for 4 people. Right now we only have 2 options drive (from RI husband is the only driver) or fly out of new York. I really need to decide before tomorrow!

oh, i agree $1000 is a great price...... but $1000 after using 65,000 points and a $350 credit just stinks. any other week and our out of pocket cost would have been ZERO $!

Airfare has just gone OBSCENE, I agree! I ended up paying $1000 out of pocket for the five of us which is great, but that was after using credit and points as well! Insane prices, and our times stink too, LOL.

I hear you guys on that one!! For our 2011 trip, we tried to save money by getting a flight down that was not non stop. It had two stops actually (one in Baltimore and one in Nashville) we didn't have to get off but it made for a 6 hour long flight...and our luggage got off in Nashville...we didn't get it until our 2nd day in WDW.

Never again.

We ALWAYS fly nonstop...I can remember going to Florida with my grandparents, and we flew with a stop and it sucked. We intentionally grabbed the earliest nonstop flight possible so it's a straight shot down (we sleep on the plane), hopefully getting park time in the first day. I can't imagine having to go any longer than the three hours from MHT to MCO...

I'm confused. Won't you be on the cruise 4/7?
