I am so excited for you - and just a tiny bit jealous as well, even though we will be there in Sept/Oct this year.

I was just letting that tiny worm of a thought into my head that we could go back for a week for DD's 15th birthday, but I've already talked my way into the last week of term 3 and the first week of term 4 off, don't like my chances of any more extra holidays. Anyway, we really,really, really need new carpet - even more than we need another trip to DL (did I really just say that?)

I'm sure you're going to love everything about Disneyland!

we've already committed to this trip this year, and a big trip with my sis and carlo's brother next year in sept, so i don't think we can also swing an extra trip in...

so, so, so jealous

Good deal Karen, we were on the same Plane ( which is awesome by the way if you haven't been on it, its like your not even flying and the seats are so comfortable too,even in economy ). Our were around $1550 each last Nov.
Best plane we have ever been on

we have paid the extra $320 pp for exit row...66.....so total for ticket is $1170 pp with exit row.

I have only flown SA A380, top deck economy to Japan (DH wasn't there), so its going to be exciting..the Dh says it is on his bucket list to fly A380..glad I could help

maybe he'll be happy flying econ instead of prem econ..save me a bundle..

So heres my future trips :
2012: Sept 13-Oct 9 WDW, LA, Vegas, Freedom of the seas
2013:Feb 1-11 DLR (GCV), San Francisco (Napa valley wineries)
2013:Oct 23-Nov 4 Celebrity cruise (12 nights) from Sydney to Fiji & New Caledonia

So my www.tripit.com is getting a work out

now if only the dollar would behave

Australian karen

Congrats on your score! Exceptional value.

Makes those $999 DFW Qantas fares from last year look expensive!

Hey Karen, how did you find out about the cheap deal? Do you get their emails or did you just check the website at the right time?

Cheers you lucky girl
