Southwest just posted really good fares. We booked our flight yesterday from Nashville. I know there's a lot of airfare anxiety, so go get 'em!

Thanks! I booked last week, but just got a credit for $60 for our flights, since the flight dropped.

64 more days........

as much as I love the months of planning and the excitement of 180 days, etc., there's something to be said for short-notice trips. Last year I booked I think early march for our mid-April trip and although it was stressful figuring out my park and dining plans, at least I didn't have to suffer through months and months (ok, more like a year, Lol) of this torture.

I agree......this is absolute torture.
By the way there is a Groupon out for 40% off para-sailing at the Contemporary making it 57 for one person and 102 for a tandem..

WOOHOO! I just saved 17,720 Southwest points by rebooking my flights at lower point costs! Now our family of 5 is flying round trip for 74,580 points!

Thanks for the heads-up - I went ahead and booked us a later flight home on the 26th We were initially leaving at 8am, now we won't have to leave until 6:30pm! Our original flight was on United, not sure if we can get any credit for that flight to use later, but oh well. We had enough RR points on SW to book these at no OOP cost for myself and the kids (DH doesn't fly SW as often so I had to buy his, but it was only $150, not bad for an extra 10 hours at Disney)

Just hope it's okay with DH, I suppose I should have cleared it with him first Unfortunately he is out of town at the moment, and I didn't want to the good fares to get away. On our previous plans, he would have been able to go into work Friday afternoon, now we won't get back until late. I guess if he says no, I can probably cancel and get the points back.

Congratulations!!! I won't be paid in full until right before my deadline.

We were going to rent a van to drive down to Orlando from North Georgia, however, after pricing Southwest flights, we've decided to fly.

We also won't PIF until we have to, and even then it's going on the Disney Visa (w/ 6mos no interest), so won't be "truly" paid until about August. Very jealous of those of you that are already done with that unpleasant financial piece

Also did our taxes today... at least most of them. Still waiting on a couple of forms but it shouldn't change much. For the first time in a decade we owe $$. Ironically, we owe almost exactly what our refund has been in years past. I've known this was coming all year and had it in the budget, but somehow seeing it on the screen "for real" has given me a whole new level of anxiety! But maybe a small measure of relief too, since my worst fear was that I had WAY underestimated what we would owe, and we'd have to cancel Disney to make up for it. Of course I was secretly hoping too that I had overestimated, but no such luck. Our trip should be safe, though

We just nabbed our airfare yesterday too, on Southwest! Got $220 nonstop round trip per person out of Long Island, so pretty happy about that!
