Just wondering if you know what they charge for parking at the Columbia/Jeff City airport??? We live in KC and don't mind the drive over for THAT price. Thanks for the heads up!!!

Nothing! At least not yet but they are going to have to raise some money somehow to update the airport to add Frontier. It's such a good price, I wish we could find a way to take advantage of it. They are working on Highway 63 to add an overpass there, there's a detour that means going just a little south to Angel Lane.

Sounds promising! Hopefully!

I thought they would be, hopefully some type of discount comes out for the other days?

That's awesome that you could take advantage of that! We come before Marathon Weekend, but leave right after and I think that's when they'll offer the FD again~oh well.

We are booked at Poly for Thursday through Monday of marathon weekend with an AAA discount right now and hoping for a little more %off. Going no matter what since I am running.
The price was just a little more than the surrounding days.

That was a good discount that you got in 2011! I hope you can find a good discount for this year! I have to say, we are fortunate~ for the Marathon Weekend, my family is staying at the Poly with a group discount that we get through the organization we are fundraising for with the Marathon Weekend events. It's a good discount.
DD and I went a few days ahead of everyone last year and we're looking to do the same this year. She really wants to stay at either AoA or POR in the Royal Rooms. I can only justify not using the group discount at the Poly if we can get a good RO discount. Fingers crossed for everyone!

Wow, that's great. We've never even thought about going to Columbia to catch a flight, I can't believe the price. Thanks for the info!!!

Our son and son-in-law are running in the Marathon on the 13th. And She Who Must Be Obeyed wants me to go as well, to be there just in case anything goes wrong - not uncommom when those two do stuff together. So we've booked two rooms at French Quarter for Thursday, Jan. 13 through Monday, Jan. 14. The only room only discount available right now is AAA, which helps some. Clementine, the agent who helped with the booking, said that there are usually other discounts available, one of which should be offered this Fall for Marathon participants as well as a general public room discount. Also, we are going to WDW in December so I'm hoping for a bounceback offer.

Just curious as to what the AAA discount is on a moderate room if you don't mind me asking?

Don't mind at all. The AAA discounts vary throughout the year. It was 5% for this timeperiod. Not really very much at all ; I did the deal to reserve the rooms with hopes that something better comes along between now and then.

Ok thanks. Expected more from AAA but at least that would pay some of the taxes on the room! Hoping to stay at Riverside end of Jan but hoping for a discount too. I assume "She Who Must Be Obeyed" is your SIL's mom LOL?

The bouncback offer will "probably" be for free dining for next Aug/Sept because that is the one that just came out, although it could always change. Last year, I think there was a room only discount but can't remember. Have you thought about renting DVC points? We rented a studio at AKV for the week after the marathon and it is cheaper than a moderate!

I know....We're used to people coming from Columbia, Des Moines, Omaha and Lincoln to catch a flight out of KCI since it's usually so much more expensive to fly out of the smaller towns. I'm amazed, and THANKFUL to undertheseas for the heads up!!!
