So sorry to hear this! Hope you get it re-scheduled and don't lose any days in Disney!

Good Luck!! Hopefully they will get you out earlier. Is that a possibility? I say if you can to add another night on and leave now. We had to do it for our trip in Feb of 2011 and it beats trying to get a flight after it all.
I hope it all works out for you

We've decided to get up at 3AM tomorrow morning, drive as hard as we can to get past the storm area (i.e., aiming to get south of the Raritan River in New Jersey by noonish). Wish us luck!

We're still not canceled, not sure why but gives me small hope that maybe our flight is so early in the a.m. (7:05 a.m.) that they're going to attempt to get us out.

Good luck everyone trying to get out in the next few days! I can't imagine that kind of stress - no matter what happens STAY SAFE!

Tried getting an early flight tomorrow, even before they cancelled our original flight. No luck. Rescheduled the flights and got one for Monday 6:30 am.

Then I called Disney, and was told our resort (ASMu) isn't available the 11-17, so we'd have to switch (which is fine) but pay the difference, even though I have trip insurance. Going to try calling the insurance company in the morning and ask them about it before deciding what to do with the resort.

Does anyone know what happens as far as Magical Express goes? Switching days, and probably resorts, what do we do with the yellow tags? I assume we would just need to pick up our bags ourselves?

I feel so clueless. I've never had to handle something like this before.

Call Travel Guard. They should reimburse you the difference. Disney wouldn't directly wave the fees because of the insurance, but you can go through them to get them back as long as it is covered. I don't know their specifics.

As far as DME, if you switch resorts just cross out the resort name on your tag. They'll scan the barcode and it will tell them your current resort.

I hope everyone traveling from the northeast has safe travels. My sister who is flying down tonight from Chicago to join us has had her flight delayed but finally got out. We plan to go to Magic Kingdom tomorrow. We've already been there a few times, but it has been crowded in the new Fantasyland area and we haven't been able to do very much. But we were able to walk right on Barnstormer and Dumbo about 20 minutes before the castle preshow. Everyone clears out then.

Epcot wasn't too crowded today, except for Test Track and Soaring. We walked on everything else. You have to go through the regular line if your want to build a sport car at TestTrack. Fast pass and single rider lines take you past that option. I really liked the changes.

O'Hana was great. The kids enjoyed the coconut races and hula lesson. The food was good. The only complaint was that it took so long to get my gluten free food that the rest of the family was already eating dessert. So he brought me a delicious dessert instead.

Hoop Dee Doo was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed it. The campground is so nice and peaceful.
