I'm pretty sure that once you add the DDP you can get what you paid for CRT credited back to you. Just ask the CM on the phone when you add it, I know I've heard of other people doing that before. It's got to be a fairly common situation. That's an unpleasant shock though

Definitely stick around- and if you are on FB we have a group there too!!
Where's the FB group??? I missed it!!!

I'm going to keep a running record here of the flights I'm interested so maybe once I have it all written out I can crack the pricing code of the airlines.

Yesterday the flights I'm interested in were $288 and $347 (SW). I laughed at the absurdity of ever spending that much for a one-way (albeit non-stop) flight.
This morning, shortly after SW released their newest dates, those flights went up to $347 & $418 respectively, and have stayed ever since. Still, I thumb my nose at them! I demand under $250! Hopefully I won't be sitting at home thumbing my nose at them in 5.5 months; I won't be laughing then, lol.

I can't wait to see how the flight thing works out for those that are waiting to book. I booked our Southwest flight out this morning at around 6:00 am and by 8:00 am, it was sold out. This was out of Kansas City. I wasn't crazy about the timing of the flights, the cost was too high ($340 roundtrip/pp) and our flight back is not nonstop, but I was too scared not to book so I bit the bullet. It will be painful if I have to watch prices fall!

I know, it's crazy how much they fluctuate. it's like gambling, you have to decide when to bite the bullet or hold.

The good news is if they fall you can get credit back for the difference!

OK, pardon me for being a giant idiot, but do you have to cancel your flights and rebook to get the credit? I travel a lot, but do it through work, so I don't ever have to watch airline prices. I suppose since our flight out is sold out, there is little chance the price on that will fall. Ha!

I think you can set up a fare alert if you don't check that much and you will get notified if there are any drops in price. You can modify your reservation right online (somebody correct me if I am wrong, it's been awhile since I did this on SW) and they will give you credit good towards a future flight. So no, you don't have to cancel and re-book, just modify!

you don't have to rebook, they just adjust the price. IDK about doing it online, it happened last year with AT and I just called them.

I've changed my flight online before to something cheaper and the credit goes immediately into your account. Even if it's the same flight, you follow the links to "Change flight", and then just select your same flight at the cheaper fare. I've never done this for Disney, but have made use of it on several other trips.

The only tricky thing is that, at least when I last did it, they don't make it terribly easy to find your credit. You have to know what flight the credit was from when you want to use it. So make sure you keep your confirmation number handy until you've used any credit you got for that flight. I'm afraid I may have let some points expire once because I couldn't figure out what trip they were from, I just remembered that at some point I got some.

After trying to buy flights this morning I am thinking I might have to reconsider my April vacation.
Does anyone know what time they were released? I went on at 6:30 and some were sold out already!!!!
The prices were ridiculous to say the least and I have never seen them go down for every April vacation we've been on.
I'm thinking we may be going in July. Any chance they may come down tomorrow???
