This morning, shortly after SW released their newest dates, those flights went up to $347 & $418 respectively, and have stayed ever since. :
so it's tuesday morning @ 8 a.m. and when I first woke up this a.m. the flights were still at $347 & $418. I just checked again and now they're back down to $288 & $347, supporting the theory that fares go down on Tuesdays. Hopefully this isn't it and they'll go down even further.

We won't be on that trip....we're waiting for the 2014 schedule to come out, wanting to cruise sometime around the 1st two weeks in May 2014.

On a different note, I was wondering though if any of you were doing the Fish Extenders? We had an awesome time doing that. We also enjoyed the ideas on the "DISigns" thread to personalize things for our trip and or FE gifts.

I've been looking at all of the posts for airfare...I feel bad for you all that are having to pay high rates.

My wife and i drove last time from central NY to see the mouse, but my Vertigo issues flared up, and now Flying is my best travel friend....LOL...

We found flights through JetBlue paying between $110-155 per flight for non-stop fares. (our stay is 4/16-4/30)

Generally, it's less expensive on the early side of reserving, and once in a while just before the day of the flight. We generally book early, and if there is a decrease in price, we call Jetblue and they will credit us the difference. That way, if the prices increase on us, we got in good from the beginning. We also notice that Tuesday and Wednesday is least expensive to fly in our area.

Just hope that with gasoline prices continuing to rise, that those waiting for a lower fare won't get stuck paying even more later. I hope all find an excellent deal soon

Ooooh, I didn't know you could do that with JB. We are used to flying SW which you can get the credit for decreased fares...

I don't think we'll get much lower than the $950 for 4 people that I got. I'll take it! Thank you Jet Blue!!

For our party of 4, we ended up spending a little more. You did good! Long gone are the days of $99 fares...from our location anyways.

After going through the past 10 pages that I missed I am feeling horrible for you all that are struggling with the prices of flights. I feel so lucky. $817 for 3 of us non-stop flights. It makes the planning a lot less stressful. Here's hoping that you all with get some fairy dust and get cheap flights..

Agreed. I was really worried we were going to pay a small fortune for 5 round trip tickets, but I was able to book yesterday and It was less than I thought it would be. I got 5 round trip tickets for $1133. I hope for everyone still waiting to book that the fares come down.

So, with the 2013 theme brought out, what do you think Disney might do for the last two weeks of April? I'm sure that the first part of April will be holiday related.

What do you guys think????


We live in Southern Maine and usually fly out of Manchester NH but the fares are really high for our dates. We could fly out of Providence but that's a 3 hr car ride instead of 1hr 15 min. If it were just me and DH I would totally go to PVD but we will have our 3 yr old and 6 month old too. My in laws live 45 mins from PVD so we could stay there the night before we leave and then they could drive us...save some $ on parking too. But on the way home I know we will just want to get home but it may be tough having the kids cooped up that long...

Another option would be to change dates...4/22-4/30 out of MHT is actually cheaper than PVD for the original dates.

I would stay overnight at the IL's each way so at least on the way home you don't have to go from a 3 hour flight right to a 3 hour drive. OR, I would just change dates!

Yeah, we got close....one of our fares was $108/pp one way!

Yeah I think I'm leaning toward changing the dates now...a BLT standard view studio is available for 8 nights for the alternate dates! Saving us $$$$$

If you are able to switch dates and save money, that is what I would do for sure!
