i'm thinking the prices are so high b/c all the airlines aren't out yet so the few that are don't really need to be competitive right now. I am SURE (uh...hoping, lol) once AT and SW and Spirit and the others are all out, they will be much more reasonable.

I hope everyone is right! But in the last 3 years we have booked with JB already with great prices! When we used to fly SW we waited a little longer because they release them later...but I feel like we are behind! Also due to waiting for SW we lose our JB credit so I am depressed! Where in WMASS are you??

I am so excited! I just booked April 19-24 at Boardwalk for my sons 4th birthday! My awesome agent is hopeful for some kind of substantial discount at this time of the year! Fingers crossed!

Yeah, the last time we went, we booked our tickets the DAY SW opened up our dates and got $200 RT! It went up, up, up from that point on so I am really really hoping the prices open up at a reasonable rate! I fly either PVD or BDL, both equal distance from me (BDL is usually cheaper).

Also joining the waiting-for-aifares-to-be-released group, lol! I was so excited when Frontier kept promising they would extend their dates soon, when they finally did it only went through March, Ugh!!! Also want to see what SW has - there is a chance we may end up flying to MCO on Frontier and back on SW, based on the rates they each have for Feb/March. That would have us coming back into a different airport than we fly out of, but we could make it work I'm sure.

Just wish they would hurry up! The only airlines with fares out right now are American, United and Delta. I swore after last summer I'd never fly American again (although their fares for our dates are reasonable, so I was tempted). United and Delta are in the $600-800 range (x4, ouch!), so I'd rather wait it out.

Between waiting on airfare, waiting for discounts to be announced, waiting for park hours to be released, waiting for our ADR date... Sigh. Just one big waiting game I guess.

Oh no!!! That stinks! It depends, sometimes they open more dates quickly, sometimes it's a couple of months
