I am obsessing over the quest for good airfare I hope to spend less than $800 for 4 direct flights from PHL or Trenton. I wish I had a crystal ball to know what to do I guess we all do, right?

I bought one way tickets to MCO but we need return tickets, I am hoping I can get another deal before August

I know exactly what you mean! I keep checking different website, and looking at different deals every week. Last year I bought them in Feb thinking I shouldn't wait any longer. Then in April I found the exact same tickets on the same flights for 200 dollars LESS! I was so sad. I feel like buying air fair is a bit of a gamble theses days lol.

I know what you all mean. But for the past number of years the price just kept going up and I can't remember the last time I paid under $300 a ticket so I grabbed our airfare last week. I am also very particular when going to Disney because of the per day cost of being there...therefore I will only fly direct on an early morning out and a late evening coming home, which limits my choices. Good news is I was able to use some points and only ended up paying $500 out of pocket for the 5 of us! Good luck searching!

I have my spreadsheets going too! As I wait for the August dates to be released ( our trip is 7/30-8/7@ Yacht club) I have several outlines of itineraries planned out based on several different scenarios of scheduling. Now with the my magic+ out there it makes my planning either easier ( we can plan a little more down time if we can use it) or more stressful if we can't. ADR date only 17 days away!

WOW you did GREAT! I paid more than that last year for just my husband and I. I hope I have your shopping savvy when I finally take the ticket plunge :-D

Hi Sarah,

I just sent you a fb request with e-mail kitkat... Also, we have changed our dates to: 8/17 - 8/24 at POR as we decided not to do a cruise this year. Thanks so much for doing this thread and the fb page. I love the planning!

Hi everyone!

Without having to pour through every page here...does anyone know which water park will be open 8/11-8/16? Or is it too early for that?

As far as I know, both should be open at that time. I believe Blizzard Beach is currently closed for rehab, but everything should be ok for August. We should have August calendars within a week or two.

I figured it was a bit too early.

I'm chomping at the bit to get some ADRs in...

I know. It's going to be cutting it close with receiving the hours in enough time to plan for ADRs properly!

I have a couple of specific places in mind that I'm going to go for first...after that it's luck of the draw!

Park hours were released for August today!



I am so happy that I guessed all the EMH correctly so I don't have to adjust my plans!

Yay! I see it, I see it! I had been checking all morning, but figured it wouldn't happen today. Thanks for letting us know, I am so excited to get started planning for real!!
